Microphones come in lots of different shapes and sizes, which means it's only natural to wonder which ones could be the right fit for your drum set. For a lot of drummers, that means small-diaphragm drum microphones - and that's not only a matter of physical size. These mics also have different characteristics than their large-diaphragm cousins, which makes them nicely-suited to particular musical styles and drum kits. In general terms, small-diaphragm mics tend to handle high sound pressure levels well, and their low-end response is a bit tighter than a larger condenser mic, so they can really shine in genres that require clear, snappy percussion sounds.

Of course, it's also important not to get too hung-up on the details, since the design and electronics in any given mic are just as important as its diaphragm size. Some models, like the Audix F-90 Small Diaphragm Clip Mic, stand out from the rest by giving you impressive bang for your buck. Others are available in bundles, such as the Shure Beta 98AMP/C 3PK Drum Mic 3 Pack, which can make it easy to equip a full drum set faster. And if you're looking for the "crème de la crème" of small-diaphragm drum mics, you'll probably want to take a look at options like the Earthworks DK50/R Drum Mic Kit.

These are just a few examples to show off the kind of hardware this section has to offer, and there are lots of others to see. So if you thought that small-diaphragm drum microphones were just for overhead cymbal miking, think again - they're solid choices for toms, snares and world percussion as well. It's no secret that there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all mic, and deciding whether your ideal microphone is here in this section is totally up to you. After all, that's one of the best things about drums: the power to customize is in your hands.
