  • Top of the Line!!

    As reviewed by Full Sail Grad on 8/23/2006

    I have to say that the Shure Drum Mics are about the best that you can get. You get a great sound and are perfect for the studio or the road!! The SM57 Mics provide a very crisp sound that will cut any drum through any type of mix. They are very versatile and can be used for snares, toms, overheads and even vocal mics. They also are relatively light so you won't have to worry about your overhead stands falling over. The Beta 52 Mic is the cream of the crop, recognized through out all of the music industry. It gives you so much head room with the amount of SPL's it can handle, up to 130 dB!! Turn up the Beta 52 and it still is has a ton of punch without feedback! The only downfall is the A56D drum-mounts. They sometimes can be hard to position well on the drums since they are not flexible. They do however hold up very well to the abuse they take because of their sturdy solid design. Overall for the price of this package you will defiantly get your monies worth and much more!!

    These mics are top of the line! The beta bass drum mic is perfect! I wish they made more high end mic packages... It's a lot of money but you won't be disappointed!

    As reviewed by Daytime123 on 1/12/2007

    This kit is absolutely amazing. The Beta 52 is amazing without any EQ'ing, plug it in, it's ready. The SM57's are great too, I have a Beta 57 on the snare, so I have an extra SM57, but the greatest part is that it is an INSTRUMENT mic. Not only does it mic the drums, it can mic any instrument, Therefor this pack is also a versatile one. Looking to mic drums? Buy this kit.
