The Sennheiser BF 811 is a dynamic moving coil type mic that is specifically designed for drums. The BF 811 is a dedicated kick drum and bass amp mic, while other versions of the BF finds more use as a rack tom mic. The BF 811 is designed to be something in the middle, so that you could use it on your kick drum, or on your toms. My favorite use for it not surprisingly is the floor tom however. You still get the added mid range and presence that it has, and you get part of the low frequency response that makes the BF 811 great. This way you can capture a really booming floor tom that can still poke through a busy rock mix. It is a cardioid polar pattern which can't be switched. It doesn't need any phantom power since it's a moving coil capsule type. It will connect to your preamp with an XLR cable. It doesn't have an attenuation pad, so make sure you're not overloading the mic. The mic does have an exceptionally high SPL tolerance though, so that will probably not be an issue. There isn't a low roll-off because you will want to keep in all of the lows you record.


I've had one of these for almost 5 years. These are great for those times when you want a kick drum that is almost more boxy sounding than deep, and for floor toms which should not have as much low content as a kick drum does. You get a very nice thump sound on the drum skins with this mic without having to do too much with EQ. The BF 811 line is very cheap compared to other mics, so it's definitely a good value. I do not in any way regret purchasing this mic years ago. I would purchase it again in no time.
