    "Audix D2 - my mic of choice for toms (especially 10's and 12's) and bass cabinets. Love the warmth, without needing to add EQ, and they are able to give me an natural, accurate sound. Handles the transients and attack of Victor Wooten's style of playing, plus the low profile and side/rear rejection is an added bonus for optimal results on Derico Watson and JD Blair's kits."
    Jack Trifilgo, Production Manager and Front of House Engineer for Victor Wooten

    "The D2 makes getting amazing drum tones quick and easy!"
    Jerry Guidroz, Front of House Engineer for Winery Dogs and Adrenaline Mob with Mike Portnoy

    "The D2 is a great mic for many applications. On drums great on toms and a compact bottom snare mic. It's low profile a multi purpose tool for me on percussions, electric guitars, leslie low and high mic."
    Rance Caldwell, Monitor Engineer for Crosby, Stills and Nash

    "Audix D2's are one of my secret weapon mics -- huge and full on toms, perfect on congas, smooth on sax and the tight hypercardioid pattern and high-SPL handling are just the thing in the studio or onstage."
    George Petersen, Editor Front of House Magazine
