This set of microphones gives you all the essential capsules you’ll need to close-mic a conventional drum kit both on the stage and in the studio.
First, the BD-1 Dynamic Cardioid Kick Drum Mic has been tailor-made to capture both the low-end thump and mid-frequency knock of your bass drum. Four Dynamic Cardioid ST-4 microphones are designed to pick up your snare, high tom, low tom, and floor toms. These stay out of the way thanks to included, adjustable rim-mounts that clip onto the drum heads.
For the overheads, you can deploy the two included OH-2 small-diaphragm condensers, which capture the sizzle of your cymbals and the overall atmosphere of the kit. These mics also offer a cardioid polar pattern.
A hardshell case is included, so you can take the microphones with you from place to place. Though this kit is primarily intended for drums, you can also use these microphones on other sources, such as bass amplifiers (the BD-1), guitar cabinets (the ST-4), and acoustic guitars (the OH-2 microphones).
