"For the new Friendly Fires album we had the DM-1S and another mic (that cost ten times more)on snare. We had to keep checking the patching 'cos we thought the DM-1S was the £1000 mic. Incredible" Mark Rankin: recording and mix engineer/producer (Florence & the Machine, Plan B, Adele, Friendly Fires)

The product of two years research and development by Sontronics, the DM-1S is a small-diaphragm, mini pencil condenser purpose designed and optimised for snare miking in both live and studio situations. In keeping with tradition, the DM-1S delivers unquestionable quality at an amazing price point
The DM-1S was developed by Trevor Coley, Sontronics' founder and lead designer. The goal? To accuarately capture the tone and timbre of the snare at all levels; the skin slap, snare rattle, the attack, boom, decay etc bearing in mind these characteristics, the DM-1S was frequency tuned to pick up all the desirable frequencies rather than using a 'one-for-all mic' across the entire kit.
The mic itself features a -15dB pad switch that effectively allows the mic to handle up to 135dB. A fact attested to by rigourous play testing by producers and musicians at the highest level.
