I purchased two sets of the four pack mic sets for a live concert we had on Dec. 4, 2005. The drum sounds were incredible. I play a Pearl Export 7-piece kit that is 21 years old. I was very pleased with the rim mounts that come with the mics. I never hit a mic all night long. The mounts allow you to position the mics so that they pick up the best sound without being in the way. The mounts also saved me money because I didn't have to buy 8 mic stands. Over all not only myself, but the guys in the band were truly amazed, as was the audience.

I'd have given this set four stars, but I'm going to have to return it 'cuz one of the 211 tom mics arrived DOA. Response from the kick mic is a bit flat, but can be compensated for if you're running thru a decent board. the 210 mic and the one functional 211 sound great when hooked up to either floor or rack toms, not so great when used on the snare.

Great little set for the money. I only occasionally need a set of drum mics so I wasn't dropping any substantial cash for a set. I was pleasantly surprised by the sound considering the purchase price.

Good 4 piece Starter Set

By Dennis

Comments about CAD PRO-4 Drum Microphone Kit (4-Piece):

I use this set along with 2 overheads, a single vocal mic on the kick and another ribbon directly above the kit. I put this 4 piece set on the snare, 2 rack toms and the bigger one on the floor tom. The sound is coming together. Sound treatment of the room will help the OH's but as for these mics, they give me good tracks to work with. For the price they're great.

        Comments about CAD PRO-4 Drum Microphone Kit (4-Piece):

        I record all of my music from my bedroom, and I didn't have a huge budget for drum mics. I couldn't resist this package (since I already had overheads laying around), so I bought them. Here's a quick overview of some things to know before buying:

        SETUP: Setting them up is a breeze, the snare and tom mics have rubber strips that latch onto the rims, and you can tighten up their grip. Just make sure you screw it in pretty tight, because depending on the gap between rim and head, you have to make sure they get a firm grip. However, in my case, they stayed put despite some heavy hitting.

        DURABILITY: These are very durable too. Occasionally, one of my drummers will hit the mic with his stick by accident, but these still sound just as great as the first use.

        SOUND: You definitely will need to mess around with the EQ settings on your mixer or DAW, probably more than a more professional, expensive set, but with some time you can get them sounding pretty good. My recommendation is to get your overheads alone sounding perfect, then introducing these mics into the mix one-by-one. I find that the snare mic is the star in this package, as it really captures the "fatness" of the drum. This mic combined with the overhead really gets a great sound. The toms can be a little tricker to get sounding good, but I find that a small boost in the low end and a cut in the mids around 400Hz does the trick. For my room, this is where the ugly "boxy" sound of my drums was present, so a cut there did wonders to the sound. As for the kick, you will have to experiment with how you place it. Too far out of the porthole and you will get nothing but a dull "thud," so definitely make sure you place it inside the drum to capture the "attack" from the beater. A boost in the lows here will help too.

        OVERALL: These are a really great bang for the buck. They do require some time just hitting the drums and working with the EQs to get the sound you want, but they will get there in time. Make sure your drums are sounding great in the room BEFORE you attempt to mic them, and they will be great! Just a note: you will need to grab a small mic stand for the kick mic if you don't already have one, and make sure to have plenty of mic cables! Thanks for reading.

        Comments about CAD PRO-4 Drum Microphone Kit (4-Piece):

        Really good mic set. With careful placement and good soundboard personnel, these will mic up an eight-piece set.
        The adjusters have limited placement, and the rim clamps aren't the best, but overall this kit is well worth price.
        The worst part of purchasing this kit was Musician's Friend can't seem to get the shipping address correctly, so beware if you order here.

          The microphone set is just what I expected. All you need is a short stand for the base drum and your ready to record your drum set. The rim clamps for the snare and toms work well and stay put.

            Great functional mics for the price! They will require some extra equalization, as the frequency response is a little odd. Not the most professional mics, but you can't beat 'em for the price! If you have an extra $300+, you may want to spring for the Sure set, but I'm very happy with these.

              Comments about CAD PRO-4 Drum Microphone Kit (4-Piece):

              I have only had these microphones for a couple of days now, and I can say that they sound really good for what I payed. I already have a shure beta 52 mounted inside of my bass drum (which I don't plan on replacing) but the km212 would definately work well if you don't have any mic currently on your bass drum. The sn210 is great, sounds good in the few recordings I have done. The first tom mic is on my mounted tom (I play a 4 piece) and it sounds really punchy with very little eq. I wasn't sure how the tom mic would sound on my floor tom, so I compared the km212 to the tm211, and I thought that the km212 sounded too beefy for my floor tom. Not what I was looking for, but the tm211 actually works great on the floor tom. Overall this microphone pack is great, the mics don't sound like they are as cheap as they are. I highly recommend these to anyone doing any kind of recording.
