This seven-microphone wired drum kit from Pyle Pro is everything you need to record your drums discretely for a full, powerful sound. Hear the ring of the cymbals, the punch of the snares, and the boom of the kick drum, all with independent mics. This kit includes a high-performance microphone specially tuned to capture low-end punch as well as sensitive, flat response mics ideal for overhead and cymbal reproduction. It comes with a set of drum mounts that can be used on most standard drum rims. Uses standard XLR connectors. Includes windscreens and carrying case.
Only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the screw insert in one of the mics was stripped and will not tighten property. However, the mics work great! (Posted on 6/8/2016)

Look, you can spend a "pile" on a boutique collection of drum mics, and perhaps get a 1% improvement over what you could achieve with this very fine affordable kit. So my question is: are you willing to invest 500% more for a 1% improvement?! If you know your craft, and can handle eq, the bang for the buck ratio is off the charts, and won't prevent you from getting on the charts!
I use these in a project studio, and get fantastic hassle-free drum tracks. These feel and sound like much more expensive mics, and the solidly constructed storage/carrying case makes them road-worthy. All the mics in the kit sound great, and the kick mic doubles well on bass cabs. I have used the condensors (overheads) on acoustic guitar with beautiful, shimmery results.
If your uncle left you his oil fortune, by all means spend spend spend on something with a label that will impress your friends, but if you are looking for a professional solution that won't bust your budget you cannot go wrong here!
I've used these mic both live and in studio and they sound great! The might require a little more tuning than some of the more higher grade mics but that's not a big deal.These mic have an alarming clarity, durable construction and value.
This is my second set. I sold my first set to a friend who heard them and decided he wanted to buy the kit from me. So I sold it to him then and there, and bought a new one. (Posted on 6/8/2016)
Good for the price, great if you have nothing and are working off of a garage, but nothing to write home about in the pro world. The kick works well regardless, but the snare/tom microphones pick up to much low when on a standard stand. It may have just been my set, but the overheads were just to hissy (high noise floor) to do much of any good spare in a pinch or to give to my students for a show they will likely drop them for. But then again, for the price, even one was worth the money. (Posted on 6/8/2016)
