The drum set or drum kit is a collection of drums and other percussion instruments. Such as, cymbals, toms, hi-hats, and kick etc. Each of the drum and percussion instrument within the kit can produce its own sound. Some percussion instruments are made to sound higher than others and there for are mic’d differently. For this reason, there are specific microphones that are made to compliment and amplify each part of the kit. For this experiment I combined both my insight as a drummer and the technical knowledge I acquired about audio during my semesters at City Tech to show why this is the case. My goal was to collect and provide evidence that supports the idea that each microphone picks up specific frequencies differently. I used an fast fourier transformer called SMAART along with the manufacture frequency response chart to visually see the response of each microphone.
