A Drum Mic Kit With Overheads!The Drum Mic 8Kit is the latest convenient drum mic package from Samson. The 8Kit has been designed to accommodate the growing number of drummers who like to use full-size condenser mics as overheads. The Samson 8Kit is a package perfect for miking a full-size drum kit in any studio or live setting.
Samson Drum Mic 8Kit at a Glance:
The complete mic package for studio or stage drum kits!
Unlike many other drum mic "packages," the Samson Drum Mic 8Kit gives you all the mics you need to set up a standard drum kit for studio recording or stage miking. Eight quality mics, specially designed for snare, toms, cymbals and overheads, come packed in a rugged road case. And if you've used Samson mics on drums before, you know that they deliver a ton of punch and tone without overloading!
For overheads, two large diaphragm condensers
More and more drummers and engineers are turning to large diaphragm condenser mics for overhead drum setups. The 8Kit features two large diaphragm Samson C01 Condensers for the full-spectrum overhead imaging these mics provide. Three Q-Tom microphones are included, perfect for dynamic tom miking A Q-Snare is provided for precise snare drum miking with the "crack!" you need. The popular Q-Kick captures the low end attack of the bass drum without bottoming out. And a new C02H Mini Pencil Condenser Mic is ideal for hi-hat or ride cymbal.
No "Forest" of mic stands needed!
Sometimes you can't see the drums - or the drummer - for all the mic stands! Samson solves this problem by outfitting both their Q-Snare and Q-Tom mics with attached rim mount clips. these sturdy clips let you position the mics exactly as you want them without getting in the drummer's way. Saves space, saves the burden of carrying extra stands, and looks great!
Gold-plated connectors and rugged construction
All of the microphones in the 8Kit feature gold-plated XLR connectors that will provide years of reliable use. Each mic in the 8Kit set is ruggedly built and can stand up to the types of abuse that inevitably fall on drum mics. Plus, the Drum Mic 8Kit comes packaged in a rugged road case for easy travel and storage. It will give you years of service under demanding conditions!

by Corey Allan Hawkins from Port Moody, BC CanadaI'm giving these mic's a 5 out of 5 because they really did blow my mind. What a great sound. I tried using these Mic's through my UA-4-710 and man oh man did they sound great. Even the snare had a gr... read more [+]eat sound to it. The kick, after putting the head phones on and crawling on my knees for a bit, I finally found the right sound I was looking for, I went back and recorded a drum take. The kick was excellent.

If you have the money, you can buy any Mic that you see fit to get that drum sound you're looking for. But I have to say, these Mic's with a good Mic Pre sound great. Samson aren't known for being fantastic, but I really liked these Mic's. close [-]
by Chris Henkel from Midland, TexasMy churches youth ministry needed some mics for their drums. We were lookin at the Shure PG6 kit and almost bought them. At the last minute we decided to give these a shot. We just set them up this we... read more [+]ek and we could not believe how great the mics sounded! The lows on the kick and tom mics are amazing and the quality of the condensers and snare mics is incredible. I used to think that the board we have had horrible pre amps but now I realize that we just didnt have the right mics. I cant say enough good things about these mics. They are by far better than the Shure PG6 kit, we will be buying another set for our main church drum kit! close [-]

Great Set Buy Them
by Paul from Brass City,CTI have to say I though I was going to get what I paid for, cheap mics at a cheap price. Boy was I wrong.

by JP Crabtree from Galatin, TNI have been an engineer for the past 6 years and have worked in many studios in the Nashville, TN area. I must say these microphones blew me away! The only reason I decided to get these instead of any... read more [+] other drum mic. package was that this package came with more mic's. I didn't think that quality from anything near this price range would vary much. As soon as I heard the kick I knew I had made a very good decision and the 2 large diaphragm condensers sound amazing. They capture the spit of the Hi-hat and the crispness of the cymbals like microphones 4 times as expensive.

The Mics are GREAT!
by John Walker from Carlisle, KyThese Mics are GREAT! I have been a drummer for many years, and, for the money, I couldn't beat it! They have an exceptional sound and could pick up a penny dropping on the floor. Way to Go!
