I bought this for my son who is a musician. He says they work real well, in fact they work so well that when the dog is sleeping in his room, it picks up and pulses with her snoring. On a serious note, they work well with his recording equipment for his guitars as well.
great product for the price and purpose. They work just as advertised. very satisfied with the purchase.
I bought the digital reference 4 piece drum set and they have been awesome for me. After someone stole my shure sm57 I needed a mic for my snare and hi hats but was in a tight budget at the time and needed one quick so I bought the DRI100 and it's been amazing. I can't tell the difference between this and the SM 57. I noticed that the housing on the tip is plastic so if you're Giging and on the move constantly from venue to venue in a single night you tend to start throwing things around so the fact that they throw in 2 free is a plus so you can have extras. Buy these mics, don't waste you're money on something more expensive that is going to give you the same sound and quality
I have used this mic on snare, toms and even Kick, and it does a very good job capturing the nuances. With Kick, i 've had to eq it quite a bit. This was a really nice deal because i got three mics for the price of one - plus it's a bargain even if all i got was one mic. I haven't A/B'd this mic with the popular alternative, but from my experience with other mics, this DR100 holds it's own.
I am no way a recording engineer or expert. I'm just a guitar player in a band that wanted some rough takes being recorded. That being said, it is difficult for me to comment on the "recording quality" of these mics or compare them to other mics. I have used these mics for a few months now and they have a pretty solid construction. They've lived through summer heat, winter cold, dry, and humid weather. They've been dropped and kicked over in my practice space. I've used them to mic guitar, bass, kick drum, and snare without any issues. I haven't noticed any odd noise any any of my recordings and I can say that the mics are very directional which helps out for my usage. I use them to record my band's practices in a storage space. That being said, I don't have a "studio quality" set up by any means. These mics work perfect for that. I didn't give the mics 5 stars because of my setup. My noise floor "live bleeding" is too high to really vouch for their audio quality. My recordings don't come out muffled or overly bright. They seem to represent what I hear live for the most part.
I got these for my studio. I did a side by side with an sm57. I have one sm57 and now I have 3 of these. They are worth the price. The sound comparison is interesting. Through the same board and processor, the DRI-100 sounds better than my sm57. It has a thicker and fuller sound. Only time will tell if it can withstand time and banging around. For now, I'm satisfied with my purchase.
