JimboSpins's review"The Shure PGDMK6 is way better"

Samson Technologies 8Kit
I have had the Samson 8Kit since 2007 and have used it tons of times since then. It is an 8 piece microphone kit that comes with 2 condenser microphones that are for overhead, and 3 tom mics, a kick, snare, and cymbal microphone. This is a very basic kit for recording your drums, but it is a great kit to have if you are getting into getting your first set of drum microphones. Picking out microphones for your drum set can be a long process, this kit takes out the brain work and gets you what you need right out of the box.


You are getting 8 microphones with this kit for 400 dollars. The snare drum mic and 3 tom mics come with clips so you can clip them right to your drum. All of the mics are good and give you a natural tone. But to me the one microphone that does not sound very good is the kick microphone. It does not bring those low end thump frequencies out in the kick that I like to have. I had to replace the kick microphone with a different brand a few times until I found one that I liked.
The kit comes with a case to carry your microphones in to keep them clean and damage free. Samson also offers a 5 microphone kit that is a little cheaper in case you don’t want the full kit. But after comparing this kit by Samson with the Shure PGDMK6 kit, I realized that the Samson 8Kit was no good compared to a good Shure drum microphone kit. If you are a beginner and just want to start recording your drums then this kit will work great. But wait till you hear the quality difference in the PGDMK6!
I do regret getting this 8 piece Kit now. But at the time I was very happy to have my first drum mic kit. But knowing what I know now I would not have got it.

As said before ...


I use this mic since July 2012. I tried many kits before but it is true that I buy for the price!
If I could I would have bought Shure quality is 1000 times better.
It is true that they are good microphone but it is not quite to my taste directional. They capture almost everything that happens. They are coupled with Fastrack Ultra 8R it works very well!

I think in hindsight I remake this choice because I did not record but only for pro models and in this case there is no problem.

To purchase!

Kit drums microphones

Two capacitors (over-head) large diaphragm c01 can also be used for recording vocal tracks **
3 dynamic mics for toms QTom
A dynamic microphone bass drum (bass drum) Q Kick
Mirco a dynamic case (Snair) clear Snair Q
a condenser mini (mini-pencil) CO2H for cymbals
transport box


The kit is complete trs for my personal use (home studio), an advantage of this kit: the prsence of CO1, serving both for the cymbals and voices. as given my budget, I found this INTERESTED, a will save me another dpense. it's a purchase that I recommend without hsitation.

two over-head: for cymbals (it can also do a very good track record).
three tom mics (can also as be an instrument amplifier).
a snare drum mic (can also as be an instrument amplifier).
a bass drum mic (can also be used for the floor tom).
pui a micro mini-capacitor (may serivre for recording wind instruments)


I use it once was. It is a versatile kit trs mic for recording home studio. love is all about vrement kit.
I board trying bocoup micro base before that (sm57 ...) type of Shure, AKG and other brands but it is still a very good kit.
It has a very good value! I counsel any vrement persson who wants to vary the live and home studio and what has not is the type of microphone!
microphone kit is is my neighbor
