You get what you pay for

By Mark Johnson

from Illinois

Comments about Digital Reference DRDK7 7-Piece Drum Mic Kit:

So, you get what you pay for. These are not bad sounding mics for the price. I'd never use them for recording, but for live gigs where you want to add just a little punch to the drums they work fine. The overhead mics are really harsh and need a fair amount of high end rolled off, but again, they work fine for helping the hat or ride just a little. If you were playing a large club and the sound was mostly amplified, these would not be a good fit. But in a small club or bar, where you are just adding a little extra (like most of the gigs I mix), they work well.

The clips are crap, and will need to be replaced. I broke two the first time out, and then a third at a later gig.

Awesome mics if you know how to use them, and how to mix...and how to tune drums

Comments about Digital Reference DRDK7 7-Piece Drum Mic Kit:

Great product, if you are starting a home studio I would recommend these mics in a heartbeat because of the value and quality. I replaced the snare top with a shure sm7B or sm57, but I have gotten good results with these.
I only gave quality an 7 because of the mic clips because they easily break, but I have hit the microphones several times while recording and they have never messed up on me in over 3 years. Good so far.
Great value because you can get very good results from these mics, if you take the time to tune your drums and get the placement right. It also helps to know some basic eq.

Decent Cheap mics.

By David Yanchick

from Edmond, OK

Comments about Digital Reference DRDK7 7-Piece Drum Mic Kit:

This is the first set of mics I've ever owned. But playing and recording for 20+ years I've used many different mics. First off, the mounts are cheap and didn't fit my toms well with the isolation mounts I have. So I did buy some new mounts, but maybe they will work for you. Now on to the mics. I bought these to do a just-for-fun recording project with some friends of mine. I know these are NOT pro-studio mics, but I don't think anyone spending $ on seven mics would expect them to be. For what they are, they work! If you have a limited budget, and just need to get SOMETHING recorded, they work. My toms sound great, and the overheads aren't too bad either. I haven't used them on my snare, because I am using eight mics total and got a Sure pg-56 (again, limited budget) for the snare. My one gripe is the kick mic. The housing is bigger than the others, but if you open it up, the diaphram appears to be about the same size. That being said, it lacks low end. Maybe this is my fault as I am still experimenting with placement. It does get a great click if that's what you are looking for. All in all, this is a great value if you need seven mics and don't need top notch studio quality mics. The sound I get from them is decent, but I'm shure someone with more recording experience could get an even better sound. The first upgrade I'm looking at is a kick drum mic, maybe an AKG D 112 or Audix D6 (which each cost as much as this entire set). Then maybe a Beta 57 or SM 57 for the snare.

They're okay

By Particle

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Digital Reference DRDK7 7-Piece Drum Mic Kit:

Overall, I bought this because I needed something fast and cheap for a quick project, and with some EQing, compression, and a little reverb to open up the kit, the project went well and the recordings weren't completely awful. If you're just starting and want some cheap mics to record drums at home, this is a decent kit. If you have a few extra dollars it might be worth it to check out the CAD Pro mics that cost a little more but pry have a little cleaner sound. (CAD usually makes decent stuff)
Clips worked without problems, but I can see how they might break if you bend them too much. Mics all worked fine.
The overhead condensers made the cymbals and the overall kit sound very thin, which didn't take well to EQing. I didn't care for them. The kick mic didn't have much tone or attack to it and was generally muddy sounding and didn't cut through the mix at all, even when a bunch of compression and EQing. The snare actually didn't sound too bad and cut through the mix just fine without me having to mess with it, but still not as good as an SM57. The toms were very thuddy sounding and had a very hollow sound with little tone.
For the price you get 7 mics and a few clips, which isn't a bad deal, and that's why I keep giving this a 7 instead of a 5 or 6. That's like twenty-five bucks a mic, which isn't a bad deal at all. I didn't try the condensers on acoustic guitar, so I can't comment on that. You also get a nice hard case to carry it all around in.

Great for starter recording

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Digital Reference DRDK7 7-Piece Drum Mic Kit:

I picked these up a few years ago and they sound pretty good. You can get a really nice sound out of these mics if you spend the time to tune your drums and find the sweet spot for the placement of the mics. I recently switched out one of the mics with a SM57 for the snare.The only thing that didn't really work out was the mounts that attached to the rim of the drums. After putting them on and taking them off a few times the plastic broke and became totally useless.

Pretty good mics

By Tyson

from Fort McMurray, AB

Comments about Digital Reference DRDK7 7-Piece Drum Mic Kit:

I bought these and they are great.; the only downfall is if your a heavy hitter like me, the mics tend to come out of the holder. Nothing a bit of crazy glue cant fix
