I must say this was a recommendation from another musician they had use them in Toronto as well as in Germany for recording and live. Some of the miking does take a little bit of EQ,however especially on a drum kit it depends upon the heads that are used. I have used these microphones for three years and have never had a problem. I have helped other musicians create CDs for multiple venues and all kinds of music. Whether you were a hard hitter or light, it is truly worth the amount of money. I have had the opportunity to use extremely expensive microphones and a very nice studio. I must say spending a little bit of time with these microphones on the software available today makes it very affordable for young musician or someone that is on a budget. My recommendation I would definitely purchase these again. Before purchasing take a look around the Internet and utilize guitar center for their price match program.
I was skeptical about what kind of quality I could get for 7 microphones for $200. I checked out several examples on YouTube and they seemed to sound good. I ended up buying 2 sets (14 mics) and a Tascam US-1800 to record a 10 piece drumset, 2 overheads, and a mic on the hihat and one on the ride. Unfortunately GarageBand only lets you use 8 inputs at a time. The Cubase LE 5 software bombed during installation on my MacBook Pro. I downloaded a new eLicenserControl.dmg to get the install to work. I didn't like the looks of the software (pretty different than GarageBand) so now I'm going to purchase Apple's Logic Pro. I'm very happy with the mics.
Recorded 3 bands, plus 2 of my own using these mics. Bass mic could be a little better, but it's still hard to get the best bass sound. The other mics work really well, especially for toms. I use this for metal, so it's not like I go easy on them, and they still sound great.
I just got these mics a few days ago, and havent had time to set them up. I set them up last night for the first time, and I am seriously impressed. I do suggest using phantom power for ALL the mics, not just the overheads....they seem more crisp and clear sounding with the phantom power going to all mics. Overall, a TERRIFIC set of mics for the money. The clamps are easy to use, the adjustability is very good, the only thing I didnt like was that there wasnt a little clip on the clamps to hold the wires in place....but no big deal...a mundane detail. Buy these mics if youre in need of a good quality set of mics.
I am a semi-professional traveling musician and I bought these mics as a back up considering most venues i play have torn up equipment.. if they have the equipment at all. I personally use the kick mic for my floor tom and the sound is seriously impressive. The snare mic definitely gives an excellent punch with it's crack which is hard to come by and the tom mics have been used to mic toms and guitars and have worked very well in both situations. The condensors work well for close hat micing as well as overhead work. Grab yourself a good kick mic and along with this kit you will be ready for anything. seriously. A definite good buy.
when I set up sound I go for the same sound out of the PA as you wold get standing next to the instrument or drum. These mic's will give you just that with beautiful clarity. The only problem is that the rubber that stabilizes the voice coil on the kick drum mic broke and one of the wires inside of it was almost broke off. The rest of the mic's sound great though. Also if the condenser mic clips are too loose just clamp them tighter together and heat them with a propane torch gently. Let them sit till they cool and squeeze the mic's back in them. I haven't had any problems since.
Okay, so when I got these mics, I wasn't expecting much, but the first time I used them I was blown away! And I haven't even used the full set yet!!! I didn't have enough cables to use the whole set, but I did a recording of my band jamming, and I used the bass drum mic, the snare mic and one overhead for the drums, and the two tom mics for guitars, and just ran the sound through a behringer mixer, and into my Line 6 toneport, then just did a raw recording with garageband. And it sounded amazing!!!! I was surprised on how well the tom mics did for micing guitar amps. And even with using one condenser only, the cymbals sounded crisp and bright. I would highly recommend these mics to anyone! Now I did have to do a little tweaking with mic placement as you do with most mics though. But these mics are a little more tedious to get the right placement, but it's worth it!!! The price is amazing, as for the quality as well!
these mics are a great buy like the title says. The only problem i have with them is the clips for the condensers are actually a little shallow when they go on the mic stands so make sure you have some adjustment rings for your stands. overall these mics are absolutely great. The bass drum mic i use on a floor tom and it really pics up the low end amazingly well. the tom mics and the snare mic (which i use on a high tom) all have a great sound to them i really think this set is excellent.
These mics are great for recording. I havnt used them live yet but im sure that it would work out. And for recording, all u have to use on the drums are the 2 tom mics, the kick and the snare and it will sound great. Because of that, you can use the other 2 mics for other intruments such as acoustics,guitar/bass amps, piano, and vocals. It has a great price. I had some shure mics that did not do as good as these. CAD all the way! Buy it.
