      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.

      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.

          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.
