Sound great, but there's a secret
by Kip from Atlanta, GAI bought the Samson 7Kit based on reviews that I read on this site, so I wanted to be sure to put in my own 2 cents. Read on, there's important stuff in this review. I bought the 7Kit because I wanted... read more [+] to fill out my drum mics some more. I already had a Shure 57 on snare and an AKG D112 for kick, but I really needed a good set of overheads and also microphones that were actually designed for use on toms. Let me just say that as far as that is concerned, I'm blown away. I always heard great reviews about the C02's and they are true. Furthermore, the QTom mics sound great, and the QSnare sounds good too. My current setup is my 57 on snare top, Qsnare on snare bottom, QToms on each tom, my D112 on kick, C02's overhead, and if I ever want to have a extra kick drum mic on the beater side, I can use the Qkick. But now for what I consider the untold secret of the 7Kit that for some reason I never heard mentioned in any of the reviews. It was the first thing that struck me when I opened the case. The thing is that the QTom mics and the Qsnare are completely made out of plastic and their mounts are plastic too and are actually permanently joined to the mics. The problem with this is that if you have the next Dave Grohl in your studio and he hits a QTom with his stick, it could be ruined. In my opinion there’s a possibility that sustaining a very hard blow could probably snap the mount in half if not destroy the mic itself. Also, because of the way the QTom mounts are, you cannot get the mic to be low profile. This can be bad because some drummers really like to have cymbals right over or near the toms and the QTom mics get in the way because they are high profile. If this really concerns you, but you still need affordable tom mics you may want to check out the Audix F10’s. The F10’s are metal, have detachable mounts, and you can get them very low profile. I used F10’s for a live album I recorded and I was very satisfied, but I chose the 7Kit instead because they were less expensive, had good reviews, and I really wanted the C02’s. Now, let me clarify a couple of things. The C02’s and QKick are metal and have quality detachable rubber mounts (the Qkick is actually pretty hefty.) Let me also clarify that YES I would recommend these mics to other buyers and I am very pleased with the sound. But, I fear a day when I may be down a tom mic. I hope that doesn’t happen because I really like my 7Kit. close [-]

If you use RIMS suspension on toms forget these mics
by Ron from Philadelphia PA.I purchased these mics based on budget and the good reviews. What I didn't think to ask about was if the mic clips would fit on the RIMS suspension system. Well they won't easily attach and you will t... read more [+]ake a chance on breaking a clip if you try to force them on. Also, the clips are permanently attached so if you do break one that's all she wrote. I wrote to Samson about this issue and asked for some advice on how to deal with this but they do not answer e-mails for assistance. I'm very disappointed with Samson for their lack of concern for customer's satisfaction after purchasing one of their products to say the least.

On the good side I have to admit for the price they sound pretty good BUT because of their lack of concern for the customer I will not recomend anything made by this company. Buy a product made by a good old reliable company who will back what they sell. Remember, you may need customer service at some point. close [-]

All I can say is THESE ARENT SOME CHEAP CHINESE MICS. I just did sound check with a loud rock band through a Nexo System, brought them up, very little eq, and they sound great. No feedback problems with any of the mics and no rattling or hum induced from the drum clips. What else could you ask for?
If you can't afford a 1000 dollar mic package with condensers for toms and large condensers for OH and highhats. Or don't have an international act requiring certain microphones, then don't think twice about spending you're money on these. close [-]
