The Subducer-8 is made very strong and durable. Great solid construction. It is very easy to setup, and the great part about it is compared to some other “kick out” microphones, this one takes a lot of the work out of mixing the usual suspects from the bad frequency areas. The raw recording sounds how you want it to sound in the mix without having to do a lot of carving out in the mix.

The studio demoed one on a Monday, and our order was placed by Tuesday. It’s that good!

I really appreciated the solid connectivity of the low end; The Subducer has much more character than most mics of this concept. It can be felt and heard.

We love our Subducer! It has big smooth sounding low end for kick drums and bass guitar. It is a wonderful support mic with our normal bass and kick mics. Its almost like adding an 808 to your kick drum. I usually eq out the little bit of mids that come through and at times have even backed off some of the deepest low end to make it fit just perfect in the mix. It takes eq very nicely.
