iSK DSM-7A Drum Kit Microphone Set - 7-Piece
By: Vic on 23 August 2013I think this is an excellent choice for a low cost drum mic set. I've just started to use them for home recording. The mics perform well, the clips are a bonus. Having 7 mics for $300 is great value, and the quality is beyond what I expected for the price.
By: Vic on 29 March 2013Actually not very happy with the mikes. Their construction doesn't allow them to "nestle down" close to the rim, they basically take up too much room over the drum. I've had to stop playing my 10" Tom because the mike sits almost in the middle of the drum, I have to try and "play around" the mike which is a huge distraction from playing
By: Vic on 31 December 1969I bought a bunch of iSK drum mics and leads form you late last year to record my bandӳ debut EP in our own makeshift studio. I love them, they did a great job, if you want to check out the result and use the recording as a sales pitch for the mics check out www.levelsevenband.com we released the Ռet it outԠEP on the 1st of April this year, it is now available at iTunes and a whole bunch of other online stores, we were also recently approached by a publishing company who asked for permission to use one of the tracks off the EP on a compilation CD that is going to be distributed throughout Australia, Canada, U.S.A, Europe, U.K and Asia! So weӲe pretty stoked about that!

iSK DSM-7A Professional Drum Kit 7-peice Microphone set
Suited to large drum kits with 2 - 3 tom drums. Specifically designed for use with modern rock drum kits in both live and studio recording scenarios.
The 7-peice set comes in a rugged carry case and includes all relevant clips and windshields.
Below you will find descriptions on each of the microphones:
The small diaphragm enables the CM-50 to pick up high frequencies with amazing authenticity, making the CM-50 best suited for recording orchestral instruments, piano's and cymbals.
The uni-directional pick up pattern means the mic can be used effectively in live scenario's where there are other sounds on stage. Also great for studio use, especially good on cymbals.
The TDM-1 is an exceptional instrument dynamic microphone. It has a uni-directional cardioid pick up pattern and is designed for micing snare and tom drums.
The BDM-1 is a large diaphragm dynamic microphone. It has a uni-directional cardioid pick up pattern and has been designed for the micing of kick/bass drums. Also works well on a bass cab.
4x Drum Claws
The drum claws can be clamped onto any piece of the drum kit (typically drum rims), so that microphones can be attached without the need for mic stands, avoiding clutter.
