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).

      Customer service great to deal with, shipping was fast and was a great price for the product. Can not ask for more than that. I did recomment this to a friend but they were sold out before he could order. Don't let any grass grow under your feet, the deals are great.

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

      A vast improvement over our old mics. The sound quality brings out the deep drum sounds that where missing before and the record quality is also improved. They also are nicely balanced so easy and fast to setup. The clip on mounts saved a lot of money on hardware and work well. Not really a con but there are 2 mics in the kit that require phantom power to work. There is no mention in the description of that fact but they work great.

        The only issue I've had is the two CM 217 cardioid mini pencil condenser mics do not function. Will be contacting MF to see how I go about getting them replaced.

        All in all we've got some very good home recording done, have just had to use other mics instead of the cartoids.

            If you need to reverse the mic position in the clamp, there are lots of little washers that are easy to loose. Otherwise the clips are really easy and versatile to set up. A great upgrade from mic stands and booms all over the place.

                Appears to be of decent quality and the reproduction of sound is good. A little disappointed in material used. The bodies seem to be of a plastic material which I guess will be alright providing the internal electronics are well shielded to protect from electrical interference.

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

                  I have used these to record 2 (home) studio albums and a live album, plus, literally hundreds of gigs. Soundmen turn up their noses at the brand, then apologize after hearing the sound! I just bought a 2nd set, because after 8 years, I've had a couple of the mounting clamps break.

                  I'll admit though, that the kick drum mic was an early casualty, after about 4-5 years of use. I replaced it with an Audix D6, because the CAD mic started sounding funny, then stopped altogether. I have used virtually all of the major brands of drum mics out there, but for my money, I wouldn't buy anything else!

                  On the negative side, the mounting clamps are great for snare and toms, BUT not very versatile for anything else. Couldn't figure out a good way to use these for congas, bongos, etc.
