Great choice for modern sound
Nonsensei, 21.12.2019
Pros:
- punchy tone for toms and snare
- decent size
- price

Cons:
- fixed mount
- the clip isn't the best

This is a fantastic choice for a first mic set and for beginners, as the sound is pretty dang good with toms and snare without any mixing. No need for massive EQ adjustments or other mixing trickery to have your drums sound good, provided you've tuned your drums well enough and paid a bit of attention to where you place the microphone.

I actually bought the full AKG Session Set, but since it was B-stock, I cannot review it separately. I also bought an extra one of these, so I now have P4s for snare top and all my toms.

Only drawback is the fixed mount, which limits the options for positioning the mic, especially with the clip that is included with these mics. I suggest buying the t.bone clips that have a bit of adjustability and cost just a couple of euros. I've seen some reviews complaining about the clips being loose, but I'd guess they aren't actually stretching the clip all the way, you have to use force to get them on them rim.

I needed tom mics, and these didn't underperform!
Bedenella, 20.12.2020
Surprisingly well built, very nice chassis, good brand, they do their job perfectly and they can deliver! For the price this is the best suggestion for people who need tom mics without breaking the bank!

Very nice mic
Asiko, 28.10.2020
I use it for drums/percussion both live and in the studio. It sounds good and clear, the clamp makes it easy to mount onto any hoop. For its price, this mic is a true bargain.

Excellent
Jon K, 08.06.2020
I use these mics for voice recording in the studio and at outside broadcasts. Don't be fooled, they are far more than just a 'drum mic'. Robust physically and sonically, good frequency range, useful pattern. Resistant to popping, compact and low profile. Excellent value for money; if they get lost or stolen they can be easily replaced from production budget.
