I have used ElectroVoice PA equipment for nearly two decades and have found it to be great sounding, reliable and virtually bullet proof so when I saw the PL DK4 Drum Mic Pack in the Hot Buys section of the Musician's Friend catalog it caught my attention. After some research, the mic pack appealed to me even more so I bought it. When it arrived I was immediately impressed with the rigidity and quality of the case as well as the weight and solid construction of the mics. Extra spaces provided in the case for additional mics make the pack even more desirable. I play a Tama Starclassic Performer 5-piece kit and I use an AKG D112 to mic the kick so I planned on using the three PL35's for the snare and rack toms and the PL33 for the floor tom. The clips provided with the PL35's easily & securely mount to either of my snares, one has die-cast hoops and the other has triple-flanged hoops, as well as directly to the Star-Cast mounting system employed by Tama for the rack toms. The clip that comes with the PL33 (not shown in any photos I've seen of the pack) threaded perfectly into an Audix D-Vice drum mic clip allowing me to easily mic the floor tom without a stand. These mics perform spendidly reproducing the sharp cracks and pops of the snare as well as the warm, rounded tones of the toms. The mics are sensitive but don't allow excessive bleed, especially the PL33, allowing for exceptional mixing. The intended use of the PL33 in this pack is for the kick drum but brings out the roar and rumble of floor toms as well. If I had owned these mics for 2 or 3 years before writing a review of them I would consider awarding somewhere near a perfect score, however, they've only seen 3 weekends on the road with me so I maintain some reservation. That being said, I have experienced the quality of other EV products first hand for nearly 20 years so I don't anticipate any problems or disappointments and would buy the pack again.
