So I've been playing drums for like 7 years or so and about 2 or 3 years ago I purchased a gretsch catalina ash set, it sounds great, I recommend that set to anyone who wants a good set for a low price.. I also bought a matching 16" floor tom... with that being said, I wanted a good pair of mics that wouldn't run my wallet dry; my brother is a music major and has 3 years of recording and mixing classes under his belt so I asked him what he'd use; I don't have a lot dollars to mic a 7 piece set with the mics he'd use. So what I did was I bought this 7 pac, and the 4 pac together. So I had the 2 overhead condensers, 5 mics for my toms, a top and bottom snare mic, and 2 mics for my kick drum... my band and I recorded through a tascam us-1641 interface on to logic pro on my bro's laptop... and what do you know these mics are great, my brother, who as I previously mention was a music major, even said that he was really impressed with these mics... with his knowledge of mixing and whatnot, we put together some pretty nice drum tracks for our songs, I would definitely recommend these mics to any drummer with a low budget, they're just good mics, I've only had them for a month or two so I can't say how long they will last without problems, but so far so good.

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:

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...

        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.

          Acceptable Mics, beware large immovable clips and use the correct cables

          By 

          from Gaithersburg, MD

          Comments about CAD Premium 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit:

          Premium 7-piece Drum Mic Pack. SKU 271264
          The mics, themselves, are fine but, admittedly, I had zero expectations and I don't know much about mics to begin with so probably anything would be fine, to me.

          I DO have some warnings, though:
          The clips (for the snare and toms) are rather large and don't have a pivot. So, I feel like the mics get in the way of my playing. They're not in the way, really. They just FEEL like they are in the way because I can't pivot the clip and the mic is too far "inside" the circumference of the drum. The mic HOLDERS, themselves, have a slight pivot but the CLIPS do not. I just feel like I should be able to move the mics "back - out of the way" a little. I don't understand why they didn't allow the clip, itself, to pivot. Hopefully, I'll get used to it.

          HOWEVER, for the snare, I just couldn't deal with it. So, I bought a small-footprint boom stand to hold the snare mic, rather than clipping the mic to the snare. Again, I just felt like the mic was in my way (too far inside the circumference of the rim) ... I mean, I can just imagine doing a fill and smacking the mic with my stick. Wouldn't that be great? Even the psychological aspect, I just couldn't deal with the mic being so far "inside" of the snare rim. So, again, I decided to by a boom stand for the snare mic.

          Also, take note that the KICK mic and the TWO cymbal mics require PHANTOM power, meaning that they need XLR cables. The Musician's Friend rep sold the wrong cables to me for my mixer (which has both XLR and quarter-inch inputs). Quarter-inch cables DO NOT work for the kick and cymbal mics. Quarter-inch are fine for the other four mics (snare and toms) but XLR are required for the cymbal and kick mics. So the discount that MF extended to me is being wiped out by my having to pay for shipping to return the wrong cables that THEY sold to me. Admittedly, they're doing an even exchange even though the new (correct) cables are more expensive but, still ... if the MF rep had known what he was doing in the first place, I would've saved a few bucks. Now, I guess I'm just breaking even between the discount and the shipping costs. Well, maybe my review will save my fellow drummers some money.
