    5 + 2 static dynamic
    5 dynamics are largely optimized for miking of proximity; ite percussion
    the two static offer wider opportunities, ambience mics ... etc ... and gives excellent results used as overhead on batteries ... very good record of cymbals and generally very well spatializes the battery (it also depends on bcp after the investment ...)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Use when recording and concert
    Very little correction needed on the overhead, in contrast, the snare drum microphone that's very convenient clip, is a bit less effective than SM57, again, it also depends on the quality of the snare itself.
    Unbeatable value for money ....

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for over 3 years
    I never had the opportunity to compare it to other kits battery. But I also use it with a SM57 for the CC.
    I like the sound made by tom mics. I never managed to get a precise sound with the mic GC. rendering is very proper for the price. cons by plastic feet are particularly fragile (I broke a fast)
    at the time I bought it was the only drum kit in this price range.
    Other kits are now in competition with this range: testing!

    This is a nice little drum microphone package from Samson. I got these as my first drum mics because of the obvious benefit that they are so cheap. You are getting 5 very usable mics for an entry level engineer at less than $200, which is really just an amazing value. The sound quality of these mics is not top notch, but having this many mics to close mic more drums in your kit will make up for the fact that the recording quality is not that great, because your overall sound will be better than if you just bought one mic for $200. So on the value, these mics score really well. All the mics in the package are dynamic mics, and they are all cardioid so that means they will help eliminate…

    This is a nice little drum microphone package from Samson. I got these as my first drum mics because of the obvious benefit that they are so cheap. You are getting 5 very usable mics for an entry level engineer at less than $200, which is really just an amazing value. The sound quality of these mics is not top notch, but having this many mics to close mic more drums in your kit will make up for the fact that the recording quality is not that great, because your overall sound will be better than if you just bought one mic for $200. So on the value, these mics score really well. All the mics in the package are dynamic mics, and they are all cardioid so that means they will help eliminate a lot of bleed from the other drums and from the hi-hat and cymbals. That will help you get more clarity in your mixing. Included in the package are three tom mics which come with rim clips to help you get the mic in the right place. You get one Q snare mic, which also has the appropriate rim clip. You also get one larger kick drum mic which comes with a swiveling mount, which is nice because it can be tricky to get a kick drum mic to sit in the right place if you need to stick it inside of a drum head. You also get a nice carrying case for all the mics to keep them safe and organized. They all connect up with XLR cables.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used these for a couple years before I upgraded to a better drum mic package. They did serve me very well. I am a drummer so I can tell you that you are not going to be blown away with the sound of your drums, but this is a nice entry level way to start having some control over all of the drums in your set individually when you are mixing, which you can't do with only 1 or 2 perhaps nicer mics that you could get with the same amount of money. They don't sound amazing, but for the price it's a nice deal.
