      A solid set of drum mics.......Nice job.

      I purchased these mics as a replacement for many more expensive professional mics that I had sold off throughout the years after closing a commercial studio. Some heavy hitters for professional studio use. Read complete review

      I purchased these mics as a replacement for many more expensive professional mics that I had sold off throughout the years after closing a commercial studio. Some heavy hitters for professional studio use.
      I'm filling a need in a home studio. I didn't expect to get "high quality/robust" mics....just enough to do the job on a budget, as it's mostly for personal/occassional use now vs. my Senny's, AKG's Shures, etc., which were used in that commercial studio day in and day out.
      Well, I'm actually very satisfied with this set for drum miking - Yes..even the kick mic that many seem to have negative opinions about. It works fine.....it's all about drum tuning/damping/mic position and proper EQ....not over EQ.....watch for those phase issues which will pull things apart.....miking drums properly is an art.
      The mics are quite good and robust for my applications.....they will find many other uses as they all have different characteristics, and that's why you pick certain mics, not just the most well known, or expensive mics. I used to follow the pros advice, spent tons of $$ and finally learned that these are tools, and the user needs to be a craftsman, and it's what can be done in a craftsman's hands that makes the "magic". As long as the tools are well designed, hold up, and work properly, the rest is up to the user. I'm very happy with this CAD set. Are there better mics.....sure....but will these get you what you need on a budget.....YES!

      Not bad for the price, lackluster sound

      Pretty decent set of mics, not bad for demos and home recording, give you a nice clear signal from each mic without a lot of bleed, but they don't sound very 'sweet.'...Read complete review

      Pretty decent set of mics, not bad for demos and home recording, give you a nice clear signal from each mic without a lot of bleed, but they don't sound very 'sweet.'

      I could never get a good low pitched, fat floor tom sound out of any of the tom mics without a lot of EQ and compression, rack toms sounded ok though - The bass drum and snare mics were both ok, but nothing to write home about - The overheads felt ugly to me, and they didn't seem to sweeten up very much with EQ or reverb either.

      In comparison I always used a relatively inexpensive set of 2 MXL condensers as overheads or room mics and either of those mics made the drumset sound better, fuller, and sweeter than the whole set of CADs. When listening back and mixing down I would almost always end up muting the CAD toms and overheads and using the MXLs instead.

      I would've been better off spending a little more on a nice bass drum mic and an sm57 to go with my two good overhead condensers and doing a 4 mic approach (which is what I'm doing now).

          Comments about CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit (7-Piece):

          As most users have reported, the biggest challenge with these mics is the kick drum mic, which takes a bit more "tweaking" to get a full sound. But they do deliver a nice signal, especially the overhead condensers, which were very bright. All the mics have lots of headroom which is always nice when mixing live. The rim clamps are some of the better ones out there, and even the snare clamp did its best to isolate the mic sound from the ambiance of all those rim shots I gave it. Overall, a great value.

            I have had Shure and others. Why pay more if these do the same job?

              All I can tell you about is Live events these mic's work great a lot of punch and the overhead are awesome. You put a good sound man on these and you'll lov'em. I bought these a little skeptical of the price, wondering you get what you pay for but don't let the price fool you these mic's rock!

                  This is a great little drum mic set. Got it as the stupid deal of the day....can't believe I got 7 mics for such a low price. Can't think of a situation where I wouldn't have the correct mic.

                  This is my second set. The clamps on the first set became brittle and broke after 2 years of use. Otherwise, a good set of mics for a great price.

                  I see other comments about these not working well, however if you know how to properly set them and adjust the eq with a little reverb, they work great. I get great sound from all the mics, even the kick eq'd properly gives a great punch! The only negative comment I have, and it's more personal is the clips, i wish they were a little more flexiable as far as attachment goes.

                  Great sounding mics. Durable and made to last. You can't but mics separately if you want one extra tom Mic. Also the design of the attachment could be a little more built to last. Condenser mics came connectivity is too snug.

                  These are being used in our mini-studio to currently record drums for an independent release.
                  For the price these can't be beat.
                  The snare mics are ok. I eventually replaced the top snare mic with an SM-57. The top mic kept distorting when hitting rim shots or using heavy dynamics on the snare.
                  The mics can easily distort if not EQ'd just right. I'm currently running them through an older analog board we're using as a pre-amp. With some TLC they give you great clarity and depth.
                  They are certainly durable and easily clip on your drums. Just take your time getting them to sound just right and you won't be disappointed.
