      This microphone set is so good and versatile I brought a second and a third and am seriously considering a fourth. They have a very true sound reproduction without coloring. There is none of that boomy fuzz you get with using a vocal mic to do an instrument mics job. The dynamic mics work great for miking guitar, keyboard and bass amps. They have pretty much eliminated any of the problems such as funny gain and hiss that I got from direct boxes. They are all I use to mic horns. A saxophone quartet sounds awesome with set up. Especially having the low frequency mic for the bari. A brass section sounds great through these mics because they can stand the sound pressure without any distortion. I love these mics. I have used the tom mic on a jazz flute player, with a wind guard, and I didn't have to eq him nearly as much as I do with his expensive vocal mic. I found out the condenser mics work well to mic the sections in a small choir. I have each section, altos, sopranos and tenors in a horseshoe around each mic and I can eq and place the effects on each section. I use the condenser mics in this set to mic violins and flutes without having to crowd them. I just love these mics. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot, they work great for drums. If you shop around, a lot, you'll conclude that this mic set isn't just a bargain but it would be a fair deal at twice the price. Please don't raise the price until I get the money to buy another set.

      It's almost impossible to convey how cheap and shoddy the toy-grade elements are in all of these microphones, but even as low-end as this set it, it's actually overpriced. The SDC elements are particularly ridiculous.Reproduction is inconsistent from one microphone to the next, the sound quality is atrocious compared to the cheapest real microphone I've ever used and the assembly and elements are so poor I can't see these holding up in live use.The only thing good I can say about these is that they look OK.For just a little more money you can get hugely better microphones, and I suggest you do.

      A bit dissapointed

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      These mics are good if you're on a budget, or just looking for something to get you started. For the most part the condenser mics work very well, but straight out the box one of my DM70's was a dud, but the rest are decent if you have to time to play aropund with them. The DM80 bass drum mic is a joke. Very bad response. I havce to nearly cut all the mid's out just to get a simple response. Overall they'll do the job ok. Save your money and buy a better bass drum mic. AKG or SURE

      NIce low priced drum mics

      By JesseGimbel

      from Philadelphia, PA

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      If you know how to use these well, you can get a great sound out of them (as is the case with a lot of low-end gear). I've been using these for recording (first analog, now digital) for a number of years. I recently started using a Shure SM57 for the snare, which is much better than using the one of the snare/tom mics for it. Other than that I only use these mics. I've got the cymbal mics on either side of the set, one tom mic between the 2 high toms, and one tom mic under the floor tom.Do not confuse regular condenser mics with condenser mics designated for cymbals (like I did). When I bought these, I saw that the cymbal mics were condensers so I thought "oh I can use them for acoustic guitar" and things like that, but these definitely have no low-end to them. They're pretty nice little cymbals mics, and they're good at picking up mostly the cymbals and very little high end from the drums.Overall they're a nice set of mics and as long as you use them well you can get a great sound from them.

      Not THAT bad

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      I was expecting this to be replaced within 4 or 5 months when I bought the package but I really needed some backup mics.2 years later and I still find myself using them.and not just on drums.the dm70's work pretty good on vocals, trumpets, saxes, pretty versatile...I have an array of mics and a professional studio and Must say I was impressed with these low quality micsI mainly use AKG condensers and non condensers, and shure sm58,sm57 but, with the right compression, EQ, Pre amps these mics CAN sound just as good.Dont get me wrong, You cant just plug these in and hit record. If i ever have to use them its usually as a backup recording situation, a second angle or merely an alternate track to play with. In that event I do hit them with Focusrite or Art Pro channel Pre amp and compressors which make them sound damn good. On top of that, grab yourslef decent cables and you turn these 30 dollar mics into a priceless piece of equipmentIf you're like me, you never really read past the NADY sticker.But if you throw the right equipment in the loop, know how to process or master sound, you cant tell these apart from the big boysoverall a great backup mic

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      These mics are a pretty good deal, but don't fool yourself into thinking you won't replace at least some of them (I would if I had the money). The condensers are easily my favorite part of the kit: they make great overheads and are phenomenal on an acoustic guitar (made my old POS sound great and my new one sound even better). They don't have much bass response, so you'll need something else for vocals, and there are far better kick mics out there. For the money, though, a good place to start.

      pretty decent...

      By Mes

      from Hollywood, CA

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      I've had mine for about 8 months now, and when I first got them I used them to record for my metal band. Now, for out style of music, we needed a very active kick and snare, and very present cymbals. We used a lot of double bass, and the Nady DM80 kick mic, from experience, isn't the best choice for recording kick. It had a very low, passive, anti-kick sound when I first tried it. I did make it better eventually, though, by dampening and placing it inside the bass drum in a good position. Overall, it sounded better afterwards, but there are better alternatives for the kick mic (AKG D112). The 2 condensers were good for cymbals, and I used them for micing my guitar cab, too. They had decent presence for the cymbals. The tom/snare mics were actually pretty good. The snare could sound way better with the classic SM57, though. So I'd replace that. Overall, good for the price, but not the best in quality. I suggest you invest a little more and get some shures or akg's or maybe CAD. This is just really good quantity for a low price.

      Many say it, you get what you pay for

      By 0LfbPx6YG

      from Howell, MI

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      The Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic package has a few pros: the price and the quantity. For the price I can't think of any other 7 piece drum mic kit that can compare. The 7 mics are great for live sound in the idea that there is a Kick mic, 4 mics that can be used interchangable on toms and snare and of course the stereo overhead miking possibilities with the CM88s.Now the cons. Especially with the bass drum mic, a lot of transient and not a lot of harmonics. For recording purposes I'd stick an AKG D 112 in there instead. There is no pad switch or bass rolloff, so there is no way to combat a peaking mic. The overall sound that I get from these mics is very dull and thuddy. For live sound, knock yourself out, they'll do their job for the most part. For recording, there are better alternatives.

      Let your drums drive the rythym in your mix

      By Gary-PCn1Y

      from Rutherfordton, NC

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      I use these mics for recording primarily. For the money, you can't beat them. I own a digital studio that I use to make demos for my band, and other musicians in my area. The DM-70's are awesome for toms and pretty good for snare (you can't beat a Shure SM-57 for miking snare), The DM-80 does need a little eq'ing for the bass drum but holds up very well in the mix. My 7 piece came with the CM-90 condensors which makes the kit sound very realistic in my recordings, I don't have any experience with the CM-88's. For live recordings, try bringing your overheads in closer to the cymbals, and reduce the input level on your mixer. This helps reduce some of the "guitar and bass amps" from bleeding into your mix that can sometimes lead to a mastering nightmare. I also purchased the 3 piece drum set that has 2 DM-70's and one DM-80 that I use for large drum kits with double kicks. I recommend experimenting with miking the snare drum from the bottom with a DM-70 for a "sometimes" more desirable sound than miking from the top.

      Three thumbs up... way up!

      By InkEye

      from San Antonio, TX

      Comments about Nady DMK-7 Drum Mic Package:

      Review after 6 mo. of heavy use. I play with 3 diff. groups, 3 diff. mic sets. One kit I have uses Shure drum mics. My recordings actually turn out better with these Nady mics, but it's all in how you mic it. The condensor mics are also good for all-purpose, sometimes I use them as group vocal mics (they're very sensitive). These are well-made, sturdy, and can stand a hit or drop. I've found that for best success, mic the BOTTOM of your drum (the resonant head), instead of the top, about 3 inches away from the head, pointed at center. Same for snare. Put bass mic 1 inch away from resonant head, and condensors near edge of cymbals, and keep the gain low. To use any drum mics well, you also need a combination of drum muffling (like Remo rings or Muffl's), sound isolation (drum shields, sound baffling), gates/compressors/limiters on individual drum channels in your mix, and use headphones (not a stage monitor). You can get good sound out of these mics.

      Killer set, nice having option of battery for condensor overheads, the plastic mic clips beak if you aren't careful, that sucks. Work very well with CAD rim clamps on my drums.
