Comments about Audio-Technica MB/Dk6 Drum-Microphone Pack:
I researched a month about a nice reliable Drum Mic set and decided in the end for this set because I found pricing and quality in a good relation. As it is often not possible to test a Drum Mic Set in a store you relay on the opinion of other users. (Here to mention that Audio technical has some very intelligent YouTube manuals about how and where to hang the mics, sure that also made my mind up!)
I opened the case and found some very nice looking and very robust designed Mics with all you need to mount; even the plastic clips give a good impression. Also there were 3/8" Female to 5/8" Male Screw Adapter for every mic that made me think somebody was thinking in my needs as a customer, great!
Mounting the mics is not only easy but also I like very much the design of the hinges: compact and firm. With all this movement on the drums I guess this will work a long time and I will not have problems of mics moving and changing their position in a live situation.
They look cute!
Well every opinion is subjective, but after two weeks of recording I must say that this is what I wanted, brilliant clear sound very natural. I found a very good base of frequencies to work with in post-production.
Even the base drum mic, that looks very small, gave a good punching sound that can be modified later without the need of pushing frequencies.
I used them once in a live gig and had way less problems with feedback, cool.
Let�s say: Way more open sound than the �classic� Shure set, not that �pro� like the Sennheiser Solution but in the end if I am in need of that pricy equipment, guess I would rent it instead of buying it.
I like the sound very much and it is way better than other �Chinese home recording solutions�.
I am really satisfied and found with this set a very versatile solution for my needs in studio and live situation. Always there is a more expensive solution and always there will be a �better� microphone, but considering the price and what I got I can recommend this set for everybody that wants to make a reasonable investment in his equipment.
This set is made for professional use in studio and live situations and in my opinion it lives up to his promise.
