after toying around with many other mic setups, and thinking I was going with a differnt setup, a friend loaned me his set of CAD Premiums and i was mystified as to how such an afforadble set could be so easy to set up, dial in and use in a road band environment. I am extremely satisfied, no strike that, amazed at their durablity and the sound quality/pickup is outright awsome. If your looking for a set of mics that wont let you down, and will make all of your licks come right out and grab your audiance, then give these a shot, YOU will NOt be dissapointed.

They are okay. Overheads are the best part if used right.
They are durable and the overheads can sound good if placed right. The kick drum mic lacks punch, so be sure to eq. The tom/snare mics aren't terrible, but they have bad off-axis rejection and pick up a lot of bleed in from the other elements on your kit (like excessive hi-hat sounds when your trying to mic your snare) and also seem a little too bright. If you can afford it, I recommend an Audix d6 kick mic, Shure sm57's for toms/snare and MXL 993 overheads. Unless you just need mics to get by for now I do not suggest buying these for serious recordings.
Durable.
Cheap for 7 mics.

    Comments about CAD Premium 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit:

    Wow! These mics are well packaged in their own case, complete with form fitted foam to keep them safe when gigging. The over head condenser mics are great for recording acoustic guitars too. I am very impressed with the quality of the recordings I am getting from the tom/snare/kick mics. The mounting brackets are great. I saw some reviews that did not like the setup but I found the brackets easy to use.

    When using these through a PA at a concert, they sound amazing. But when trying to record, what few things can be heard at all are muffled and muddy. Don't buy if you need to record.

        Comments about CAD Premium 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit:

        Owned a pro studio and produced on-air radio for 9 years. Extremely surprised that these mics do a great job used for general live and recorded sound.

        Not spectacular or pristinely detailed, still usable because they handle the SPL well, don't break up, and generally have a warm and pleasing sound on toms and snare. Overheads also a surprise, kick a little average sounding but usable with eq.

        On a standard kit with three toms, you'll need a hat mic and maybe a bottom head mike for the snare in addition. Great value, and they've actually gone down in price...

        Not a bad mic kit, but there's room for improvement.

        By Jose Emmanuelli

        from Denver, Colorado

        Comments about CAD Premium 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit:

        I was excited to receive this mic kit after reading all the good reviews, then was a little disappointed when I put them on my drum set. Starting with the mount clips; although made well, the angle is wrong. They come straight up off the rim at 90 degrees causing the mic to have to be pointed to the tom edge (on smaller rack toms) in order to be out of the way. Otherwise it'll be sticking out towards the middle of the drum head.(I ended up buying different ones)They'd be perfect built at a 45 degree angle. The KBM412 kick mic was the biggest disappointment. If you're looking for 50's/60's style sound where the kick isn't prominent, then it's ok at best. It lacks the power and punch required for modern music. No mids or high end at all. (I ended up buying a Shure Beta 52a) The TSM411 tom/snare mics are actually pretty good. Great response and really capture the attack of the drum. A good mic for the money, as well as the 2 ICM 417 overheads. They do a good job of capturing the ambient sound. I also added a CAD GXL1200BP condenser mic to my high hats. It's a great mic at $80. Through my Peavey PV14 mixer it all sounds great. All in all, a decent, inexpensive mic kit. Just add a good kick mic and you're good to go.

        Good mics for little cost

        By CHRIS MUTTERER

        from Bluffton, SC

        Comments about CAD Premium 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit:

        I bought these mics on sale for live use. Great sound in small to medium bar/clubs so far, especially for the price. Not sure I would use these for serious studio recordings and I have not tried to. The padded case that is included is nice. Warning, the mounts are terrible. I would give this pack 5 stars except for the mount clips. They do not have any flexibility and put the mics in the way of where you hit the head. I was only able to get by using one of the included mounts on a floor tom, and had to purchase different mount clips for the rest of the drums. But I think you still come out ahead with this mic pack.

          These were a good purchase for the price. Tom mics worked particularly well with the pearl kit we are recording with but mics need to be mounted on a stand though as the one supplied get in the way and don't look like they will last very long. Haven't tested the o'heads yet as we have a pair of behringers that are suppurb for our studio setup.

          Comments about CAD Premium 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit:

          These mics are pretty good for what you are paying for! They get the job done, and you really can't go wrong with paying 250 for 7 mics! The overheads are really great in this pack. Crisp and clear. The kick mic gave me a lot of trouble at first, but after a little tuning and fixing mic placement, it sounds great. Dynamic mics all sound pretty good but the Snare needs a lot of EQ to really get that crack you're looking for in a mix. The only complaints I have just like everyone else is the clamps. They are really hard to fit in your setup without at least one of them being in your way, especially on the snare! I hit my snare mic so much that one of the black coverings over the mic came off! So I'd recommend buying some new clamps/stands for these bad boys.

          All in all, they are worth the money if you are just starting out and you want to make drum covers on YouTube or something. I wouldn't recommend these mics for professionals, there's a lot of after recording EQ that goes into getting the sounds I want.

          But please, remember guys. IT ALL STARTS WITH YOUR SOUND SOURCE. Make sure your toms and snare sound good in person, or else they won't sound good in your recordings!

          Cad mics are just ok, well priced but just ok, i eventually sold mine in favour of Audix mics. End of the Day sound always wins over price! There basic pencil mics are surprisingly good for the price and do the job. Unfortunately the bad side is their non-existent customer service. Its almost as if no-one is at the other end of the email address. but strangely somebody clicks the "read-receipts" go figure??? so i guess you could say, the lights are on but nobody's home lol.
