Best Drum mic kit for the money!
19.10.2014
I've had this mic kit for nearly 5 years, and everything is working as it should (I should say though that 3/4 of the rim clips have broken now). The quality you are getting for a sub £100 microphone kit is crazy!

Kick drum mic - Depending where it is placed this microphone can either be full of tone and sub or have a real tight punch with a nice present bass to it.

snare/tom mics - These microphones are lovely on toms, they pick up a nice deep tone with a punchy attack. On snare these microphones are lacking, they don't produce the right attack for a nice snare drum sound.

Overhead mics - now these are the gems of this pack, I've been tempted to buy another pack just for these two microphones, they work on every aspect on the drum kit - Overheads, Snare, Hi-hat, Room Mic etc - But I have also had great success applying these microphones for vocals! they have a very full sound with a crisp high end that is just pleasing to the ears!

I would highly recommend this microphone pack but would advise getting a different snare microphone to go with it.

Absolutely amazing
George Pickering , 28.05.2020
every part of this kit is amazing its just the drum clips that may need a change the clip as they are rubber and very occasionally fall off

everything else is great :)

a work horse
Alistair D., 20.08.2014
used these mics for a variety of things over the past couple of years. not once have they let me down!

I've mic'ed drums, guitar cabs, bass cabs, cajons, used them for vocals once and even a sax.

every time, no issues.

the build quality is robust and the clips are pretty chunky.

for the price, you'd be silly not to pick up a case to have handy. like mentioned before they can mic much more than just drums.

For the money - really nice mic set
eliah, 18.11.2019
I use it for my small home studio and it gives me nice sound. They don't have much bleed. You can get really decent sound from these boys. I use another mic for bass drum and BD bass mic from this set I put on my 16'' floor tom, and it's awesome for that job.

Clips are, as you could already read from other reviews - not that great. They do the job and you CAN mount them on triple flanged hoops, although it is a bit flimsy grip, but still doable for home use, not that much for live gigs, as I would use mic stands for that purpose.

All in all, it's a nice grab I would say. For this price - my God it's a steal.

Really Surprised
Colin N., 21.07.2016
I was pleasantly surprised at how good these mics are!

Great clarity and solid feel to them.

I've only used them for gigging so far but no complaints.

Clips seem like they could snap under pressure though.

Very happy with this!
Mancunian, 27.10.2018
The mics sound a milion times better than my 3 mic setup. Only down side is the way they are mounted. The clamps don't fit every ring type and de mics are hanging over your toms and snare, this could be a bit of an issue if you're not too accurate and hit the mics alot. The clamps arn't great either, but then again, the price is.

Wow.
Jason S. Thompson, 10.12.2018
This drum set should be priced wayyyyy higher than this. The kick-drum mic alone is worth the cost of this whole set. I've used these mics (and clips) for pre-production demos in our rehearsal room, and the quality of these little guys is insane. I bought this set based on some of the reviews that I read on here... so let me just add to that and say : if you're on a bit of a budget but still want high quality mics... BUY THIS SET.

My only complaint is that the mic cables fit *very* tightly in these (especially the overhead mics) so it sometimes takes me a sec to tear them down, but it's better than them being too loose!

Great, affordable drum microphones.
SJ92, 15.04.2018
I've used these microphones live and in the studio and they sound great. The mic's come with all the correct clips to attach them to the drums but you'll need stands for the overhead microphones. I definitely recommend this set if you're looking for great sounding mic's at an affordable price.

Function and value drum mic set.
MaxDB-demo-online, 24.06.2018
Great set of drum mics with easy rim clips. They work and capture all the sound you need. Pay more if you want better looking or smaller mics.

Great drum mic's
MG-LeeAbbey, 15.08.2019
For this price range it's FAB
the O/H mic's are nice a clear, help to create a nice stereo image, and the drum mic's are also decent -not too noisy, help make our drum kit sound livelier in the festival marquee. And at this price it's a steal.

Very Good Sound for the Money
gozynski, 28.08.2015
I am very happy with these mics, and considering the price they perform extremely well and feel well built. The snare and tom mics do not quite pick up the subtleties that much more expensive mic would but for the cost they are definitely the best option I have found and I would highly recommend them.

Great mics for the price
22.01.2016
This Mic set is fantastic for the price. The are now setup on my drum kit in the practice room all the time which make it very easy to record demo's etc. without having to spend a lot on drum mics. They do sound very good but obviously they aren't top of the range. The one funny thing about the kit is that you don't get enough mic stand adapters. So now when I'm bringing mic stands around I am constantly looking for adapters. I haven't put them through too much yet but they do seem to be built very well. Overall they were a good investment.

Brilliant mics for the price
Nathan745, 28.06.2014
This full set of drum mics is brilliant for those wanting to amplify or record their drums at an affordable price. The mics themselves are lightweight and small enough to not become obtrusive when clipped on the drum kit. The clips that come with the set for attaching mics to drums also have a convenient cable clip to make cable flow tidy around the kit. The overheads are absolutely superb and I have found myself using these in lots of other situations as well such as recording choirs and picking up general sound for live use.

All in all, very impressive set of mics.

TBone DC1200 drum mic set
Gary6465, 29.12.2016
Needed a drum mic set but coudnt afford most of the kits out there, im not a professional but like my sound quality and quality of equipment. Read up about the DC 1200 , it ticked all the boxes i needed, si i bought it to use with my Spirit F100 mixing desk. pluged them in ,miced the drum kit up and bang, off we went, the mics set at varying distances from the individual drums gave obviously differnet results untill we found the optimum best; for the money i have found the best drum mic kit i needed :)
