Introducing Avantone’s Bonzo™ Bundle: a complete solution to getting the very best sound out of your kick drum! Bonzo includes Avantone’s Kick, for the very best subsonic frequency capture, Avantone’s Mondo, for the very best attack and body, and superior mounts to guarantee stage-reliable performance.
Give your kickdrum the subsonic signature it’s always wanted, with Kick.
Kick is a sub-frequency microphone that utilizes Avantone’s famous reproduction “white cone” low-frequency driver. Kick brings the boom from your instruments out to the forefront, making large-sounding sources sound massive. The Low Frequency driver is the AV10-MLF. It has a single continuous press formed cone to match that classic sound. This allows a much higher level of quality control and consistency during the manufacturing process.
Mondo: serious attack, serious body.
Mondo is a fantastic dynamic microphone for kick drum, and pairs perfectly with Kick. With Mondo’s aggressive frequency contour, huge weight and impactful attack is found easily — with little to no need of EQ. Mondo is die cast from zinc, with a brass and steel grill assembly, and features internal shockmounting on the capsule assembly which prevents unwanted “rumble” from physical vibrations.
All of the mounting options you need.
The Kick utilizes a real wooden drum shell, and mounting it on a standard mic stand just won’t do. That’s why Avantone included a stage-ready double braced drum stand. Whether you’re in the studio or on the road, the Kick is ready to deliver! Mondo includes Avantone’s SSM shockmount — a road-worthy mount that decouples Mondo from other low-frequency sources. Mondo’s size makes it easy to mount in a number of creative scenarios.
