Audiofanzine FR's review

Prodipe DM8
Originally written by tomtom67 on Audiofanzine FR.

5 dynamic mics, 3 electret mics


I bought this set six 6 months ago to record demo tapes with my band.
The carry case and mics are sturdy. One of the electret mics doesn't work properly anymore: it produces noise (perhaps I placed it too close to the hi-hat). Considering the price of this set of eight mics, I knew they wouldn't sound like Neumann mics. But they provide a decent result you can enhance during the mix.

The bass drum mic sounds really bad, it has a cut below 100 Hz and an unpleasant boost at 150 Hz. In the beginning, I directed the mic to the beater but the sound had no resonance, it captured only the attack. Now, I tilt it down at 30° and I get a bit more lows. However, you'll absolutely need good plug-ins (like Waves Renaissance Bass) to enhance the recording.

The sound of my snare is also not very good but the problem comes from the instrument, not from the mic (I have the same problem with a SM57). In fact, I notice almost no difference between an SM57 and the set mic on my snare.

The other mics sound pretty good: the toms sound round, the overheads faithfully capture the sound of my cymbals, even though they lack some punch.

For a nice price, you get eight mics that do their job quite well. Don't compare them with high-grade mics, it doesn't make sense! They are a very good solution for beginners.
If you want to listen to them on my drum kit, follow this link:

The presentation is heals and handy suitcase for SGF (No Fixed Group) like me.

I do a lot of stage, these pickups me pleasantly surprised by their faithfulness. Dynamic microphones is uniform, clean and well balanced.

I find the report qualitprix exceptional !!!


I think I have a case and I do not regret my purchase. Moreover, I find them very beautiful. I will follow the Prodipe brand more ready.

Sound engineer in the studio, I wanted to renew my drum kit. My supplier with whom I have worked for over 10 years Salmiri me about the suitcase.

I test the situation salmiri microphones microphones with other professionals we have in the studio (Shure, AKG, Beyer, ..) and for me the result is the same.

I test these pickups in the mettants successively provided and after some careful rglages I involves my ears.
My first tests dvoillent a fine balance and sensitivity, the curve of Salmiri is more neutral and more stable than the shure, which is not ngligeable for sound recording.

- Micro Snare step is sufficiently bright
- The bass drum mic is not afraid kick attacks
- The 3 toms have no provoqus altration in my benefits
- The 3 overheads and give his own faithful


At this price the I recommend and compares them with the best microphones I possde.

V old man on the hill's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" What's the point?"

My old teacher told me that there's no bad pickups but only the wrong use of microphones!
This ultra complete battery kit is particularly weak on one: battery must admit that it's not luck.
At that price no miracle just a shame to make people work for wages vaporous.
In detail the micro bass drum does not buckle to pressure, but it will not issue any dynamic spectrum unrelated to the majority of kicks today.
The toms and snare mics like the majority of copies (canada dry) of 58 and 57 sm. That makes them usable for other tasks in troubleshooting on a stage, but inconsistent when it comes to experience the dynamics of your drums!
What about the 3 static, you just open them and watch their cells to prick a laugh.


This kit was forgotten by a friend in my studio. I am still microphones used for dynamic communication between musicians. The case is now home to a pair of AKG 414!
Despite all the evil that I think this kit is not a toy and not find a place as a troubleshooting microphones at a fair with sausage or a rehearsal. But I strongly discourages its use for the home studio because we can not all sell out, especially not the sound of a drum!
And I think for that price you can buy an Audix D6 for kick at the top, then two or AKG Perception 170 for overs of suitable quality or simply a pair of 58 or 57.
