no they do not compare to tom mics costing 1000 a piece. Still love the akg 414's on toms but dropping 4000 for 4 toms mics aint in my budget. you will have to squeeze the tone out with some compression but you can get it there with some work. seems to need lots of top end added on toms? as for the i5 I cant tell the difference between it and the sm57 hooked both up at the same time heard no difference even in its ability to reject the hh signal. overhead very directional not good or bad thing just know they hit what you aim at. but the cream of the crop.... the D6 kick drum mic is the best kick drum mic I have ever used period. and man ive tried em all, likes center micing not off to side just inside the hole not too far in. heard lots of complaints about mic clips mine have never failed but then they never leave the studio.

hope that helps, Greg

Most of these mics work as expected. They get in the way and the clips that clamp to the rim are worthless. They break and fall apart. The kick mic is ok but you might as well throw that crappy I5 right in the trash when you open the box. It's a poor excuse for a snare mic. The tom mics do the job but again get in the way in tight places.

    Comments about Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack:

    I purchased both the Audix DP7 and DP 5A Packs (as well as a few Audix Fusion f15s) for my live kit after a lot of research and comparison. The cheaper drum mic kits like Digital Reference and CAD just can't compare, and although the D2s and D4s don't equal AKG 414's, they certainly do the job for a fraction of the price. The ADX51 condensers are great overheads (and combined with the f15s take a lot of the heavy lifting away from the D2s and D4s). The ADX51s are not as high end as the Audix SCX25As (7 hundred buck lolli-pops), but again, they get the job done at a fraction of the price. The dynamic i5's compare favorably with my SM-57s and the D6 kick mics are awesome. All of these mics are pre-EQed to the job they are targeted for (D2s=high toms; D4s=low toms, etc.) and save a ton of time at sound check.

    Not every drummer needs 12 (or in my case 24 mics), but buying them as sets, rather than individually saves a lot of money and Audix has become my go-to mics for live drums. For small rooms, the ADX51 overheads are plenty, but for huge rooms or outdoors the isolation these mics deliver is top notch.

    The aluminum road cases and heavy foam insets are real class compared to the vinyl or canvas bags of competitors with similar price points. I find the D-Vice gooseneck clips to be as good (much better in the case of CAD drum mics) as other mounting systems. Excessive bending of any gooseneck will spring or break it, but I respect my gear and they work just fine and hold up night after night. If you can't hit a 12 inch target without smacking your mic, I feel that reflects more on you than the gear and frankly, the Audix mics are much more rugged than most I've used. My drums are large and loud and these mics handle the load. For the price, you can't beat Audix in my opinion, they are engineered for drums and the DP7 and DP 5A packs make them all that much more affordable.

        Comments about Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack:

        I've been miking drums at home for a while. I've learned a few skills. By no means professional, but practice always makes you improve. I bought this set because I was using sm 57's on the toms and a beta 52 for the kick. I got ok results, but I wanted to try something new. I heard a set of these at an outdoor concert at a church event at the pavilion in Penn Valley CA. that d6 made the kick come alive on a mediocre drum set. so I took a chance and just bought the whole kit. It made more economic sense than just a d6. I miked up the drums as described by the video that came with the drums. Wow! I am now an official Audix fan! They brought a LOT of clarity in my recording. I have only used a few cheap mics and 57's, so I am no expert for sure. But I definitely am digging these. I did keep some of the 57's for under the snare and stuff. I kept the 52 so now I mic the kick with 2 mic's. It gives the kick a full/punchy sound. I use the 52 inside pointed to the shell and the d6 at the beaters. I kept some other stuff too and miked it to the hilt and ran everything through a mixer. Then left and right out of the mixer into the interface. A lot of adjusting faders, but It sounds amazing compared to just a few 57's and a 52. At least to my ears.

          Comments about Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack:

          So I only use microphone in the studio for my personal recording projects. I do not play live but take home recording very seriously! I have purchased hundreds of different mics, from classic to modern to try out on my 1974 sonor phonic kit. This is my main recording kit. My guitar work is done on Marshall and Orange amp rigs and I have an amped classic rig for bass recording. I stayed away from drum mic kits because I was told they were more for amateurs and that I should look for Neumann, etc if I wanted the best. Well I have had everything from Mojave, Nuemann, Shure, etc and purchased this kit from a friend who was selling it really cheap. After setting the overheads, toms mics, kick and snare mic up I was absolutely astounded at the sound! These overheads wouldn't have even been on my radar with them selling for less than 300.00 for the set. I mean I use Nuemann km184s in this role so there was no way these audix mics would sound as good....wrong! I sold the Nuemanns shortly after and the adx51 overheads are my new favorite! Crisp, detailed and super smooth. They don't have the bottom end my Mojave ma100s or 101 fest had but I hi pass a bunch of that in my mixes anyway and the top end wasn't as muddy as the mojaves. Again I couldn't believe how great they sounded. The D6 on kick is heaven for a modern kick sound and if you buy an re20 to add as a vintage kick sound, you have the best of both worlds for just about any style you want to record. The i5 sounded amazing on snare, which I highly prefer over the sm57. On guitar cabs it also sounded amazing. Purchase an amazing ribbon mic as a second flavor for guitar cabs and with the i5 you really don't need much else! I love the d2 and d4 mics on toms. I don't have a favorite tom mic because there are different mics that sound great for different reasons but I find the d2 on rack toms and the d4 on floors handle the job more often than I expected. When I want a vintage Tom sound I move to miktek dp10 but the audix d2 and d4 are left on the toms 90 percent of the time. So less than 900.00 for this entire kit?! Are you kidding?! To not buy this kit is a mistake. I'm very particular about my recording and believe me this is coming from someone who experiments heavily. There are a million mics out there that all sound relatively different but purchasing this kit as an amazing overall recording bundle is an absolute must! Take the extra money you save when buying this kit and buy more snare drums! Don't waste our money on 3000.00 overheads and a 7000.00 u47 kick mic. Trust me....I already did that! Have fun!

          I use these mics for live sound and some home studio work. I love them and they are a great deal for the price. My only issue is that the mounting clips are just falling apart. Not an issue in studio (use stands), but live I need them to be sturdier. The gooseneck clips are falling apart.

            Comments about Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack:

            This has been my best investment in microphones by far! The construction and sound of these mics are the best I've seen/used in the mid level price range. The D6 is great for it's perfect size to capture low end without being so large that it sounds muddy. The D4 is phenomenal on rack and floor toms providing all the tones with beautiful body. The D2's are great on smaller rack toms and snare drums with a tight cardioid pattern. The ADX51's are silky smooth without being brittle and the dB pad and bass roll off are great features. The i5 is the only mic I wasn't as pleased with. It lacks a certain fullness to it that I like in a snare/tom mic. However it does sound good on timbales and other percussion such as blocks and rattles/shakers. The real beauty of this kit is that you can honestly record anything you would want, not just drums! The clarity and frequency response can cover everything from drums to vocals. The D2's sound awesome on guitar cabs while the D4 and D6 handle all things with bass. The condensers handle cymbals, rooms, instruments, vocals and anything else you throw at them. Hopefully you read this before you build your arsenal and realize you need drum mics as these will be all you'll need in one package!

              Comments about Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack:

              Are these mics pricey for someone on a budget? Yes. Are they worth it to save up to get them? For sure. These mics work very well in capturing the sound right out of the box. The only complaint I have is that the V-Clips that connect the mic to the drum can rotate kind of easily. If I begin to hit the drums hard because I'm getting into the music (as with every musician), the V-Clips sometimes rotate, causing the mic to no longer be pointing to the center of the drum and will be pointing in a completely wrong direction. I have tried tightening them a lot but it still seems to happen. All in all, this has only happened a few times, just be weary of this happening. I would definitely recommend these to a friend.

              OUTSTANDING CHANGES AUDIX HAS MADE TO THIS MIC KIT

              By Bruce Barclay

              from Jacksonville Florida

              Comments about Audix DP7 Drum Microphone Pack:

              I picked up 2 Eleate 8 Audix drum mic kits about 6 years ago. Back then the sale price for that mic kit was 2 grand a piece. The diffrence between the Eleate 8 and this mic kit is the overheads. The Eleate 8 had 3 SCX-1 mics per kit. The SCX mics were outstanding sounding but I found them to be way too sensitive. I could hear my neighbors talking in thier front yard across the street with the SCX 1. I used them once during a live band setting on a crowded stage and the soundman gave up trying to use them because too much bass and guitar was getting into the SCX 1. Even set up in my rehersal space the SCX 1 picked up way too much tom tom and kick drum...even they were physically located closer to my cymbals. No matter what I tried to do with positioning I ran in to that same problem. Higher cielings is what I believe the SCX-1 needs and to be used for recording...or a Zepplin style set up...2 overheads...Kick and snare...also a plexiglass shield in front if used in a live setting. I did order a pair of ADX 51's and that was exactally what my rehersal space needed. The 10-db cut switch and low frequency roll off helped to block kick and toms out of the overheads...although it is difficult to completly block the kick and snare out of the overheads...engaging both switches allowed the overheads to hear the cymbals more prodominatly over the rest of the kit. All the other mics are all outstanding. You will find that your soundman will love using these mics...because they will hardly need to mess with any EQ. I found it a lot of fun to move the kick mic around...trying diffrent positions with it...the D-6 is simply the best kick mic I have ever heard. The I-5 is also the best snare mic I have ever heard. The price of this mic kit...is also very reasionable. These mics are excellent for recording studio, rehersals and live gigs. It is the only mic kit drummers will ever need. Also I'd like to point out the Audix's warrenty and repair service is second to NONE. I had trouble with my SCX 1 mics...and they needed to be sent back to Audix 4 times before they finally got those mics RIGHT. They had some design flaws however Audix stood by thier product...and made design upgrades to my 6 mics...for FREE. Now my SCX-1's are very relieable and work as advertised.
