Solomon really nailed it with their LoFreq sub-mic for kick drums. Now they do it again, simply zooming in on a single application and a specific market segment – in this case cajon players. And then simply nailing it!

Daric Bennett threw a challenge on YouTube and drummer Moog 167 soon picked it up, adding drums with a beefy kick, thanks to the LoFReQ, to a bass groove.

Who said the LoFReQ subkick from Solomon can’t be used to beef up the kick in jazz music? Well, Joel Fountain found a way to use it in a subtle way so it complements his jazz kit perfectly.
The concept behind a ‘subkick’ is well known to many. The short version is that it’s a reversed speaker that picks up the sub-harmonic content, adding significant rumble – in a good way!
You may have considered a subkick, but found that too many questions and uncertainties arose and therefore never got around to actually try it. Well, here are your answers.
The legendary studio and recording magazine, Mix, tested the Solomon LoFReQ in the studio and found it perfect for picking up sub-harmonic content. They didn’t really find any cons, though…
