‘John Bonham'


When Olympic Studios closed in 2009, we were fortunate to acquire some of their legendary microphones. This AKG D30 is one of those mics.

Used by The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix Experience and Led Zeppelin as a kick drum mic, its sonic qualities helped to define the drum sounds of Charlie Watts, Mitch Mitchell, Keith Moon and John Bonham.

The AKG D30 played no small part in the thunderous kick drum sound on the Led Zeppelin songs ‘Good Times Bad Times’ and ‘Whole Lotta Love’.
