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.

A great example of very inexpensive Chinese made musical instruments flooding the pro audio market these days, Built to be "pre-eq'd" for the drums and mission accomplished to a small degree. Kick drum mic can be made to sound ok with a huge dip at about 200hz, a large bump up at about 80 hz and a rounded bump up at about 5khz. All frequencies that the more expensive kick mics already have in place. The plus is that the kick mic will reproduce below 100hz. The snare mic needs to be added to at 6k and the toms added to at about 100 hz. The interesting this about this mic collection is that when listened to as a group, the overheads add snap and presence that causes the whole kit to sound ok. With a dip in the kick at 200hz, the overall picture actually sounds decent but the overheads must be there to create the entire image. If you want mics that sound better individually, you will need to invest a bit more. I would not recommend to a commercially competitive studio but would to a startup who is willing to follow the above guidelines. Marked as recommended but primarily as a price mark for semi pro application.

    Comments about CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-Piece):

    If you are looking for a drum mic set at this price point, you are probably working out of your home studio or looking for a few extra mics to add to your arsenal that can come in handy in random situations. If that is you, get this kit! You will be surprised at how great they sound for this price. A little EQ and you're good to go! Perfect kit for someone starting out recording drums, or a band putting together their own recordings. You can't be disappointed at this price.

      Great set of mics for the money.
      Sound solid on hand percussion. I have 2 tom mics on bongos, the snare mic on a bodhran and get a surprisingly full sound from that. I haven't used the overheads yet.

      Comments about CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-Piece):

      After reading several negative reviews concerning the kick drum mic from this group, I was apprehensive about buying this kit, but decided to anyway, after all, I was offered a great deal! No problem! The kick drum mic sounded great! All of the mics sounded great! This made me wonder if some those remarks might have really been a personal tuning issue, and not the mics at all. It's a fact, if the drum tuning is off, and you throw a mic on it, you are just magnifying an already inherent problem! So with that being said, this CAD mic group does a great job of capturing the essence of the drum sound. Of course a good sound is only as good as it's sound system, and these mics will only enhance the experience! I don't know if I will get them out on location or not, but feel confident they would perform just fine! In conclusion this Pro-7 mic kit is well worth the money!

        Picked this up as a daily deal for half of the usual price. Turns out my close friend (local 'man to have') who runs sound let me know he uses 2 of these kits for his live sound production. He's used these on every major label act that comes here and they perform fine. I look forward to continued use for rehearsal and using them for recording. I'm a guitarist but we rehearse at my place with my PA system so I figured I'd add these to my mic locker. Glad I did. I'd recommend these even at regular price. If they run another sale, I'm snag another set.

          I use this product for live drum reinforcement use they are lightweight and easy to use to this point I have had no problems with trying to achieve a good drum tone as long as the drumheads are in an adequate tuning . The only real con about them is in the tension knob to tighten them in place I would incorporate and I'm going to incorporate some thin nylon washers they tend to want to move upward from the tension of the mic cable Even when tighten down all the way either way they're a good Mike and I would recommend them to anybody

          Use live ,so quick to mount and don't have to mess with them much except for kick mic . Hard to find good tone in some of the low register so have to drop some of it out and go super low . the kick mic seems to play nicer then

          Perfect miking for recording or alive

          By James Lindsay

          from Macomb,MI

          Comments about CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-Piece):

          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.

          Good quality, great price

          By Kirk Hopkins

          from Okeana Ohio

          Comments about CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-Piece):

          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.

          Great for home studio

          By Brian

          from Indianapolis, IN

          Comments about CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-Piece):

          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.
