Good microphones will last you a lifetime, and they have historically held their value very well. And unlike digital electronics where the law of diminishing returns is now coming into play, theres a big difference in quality between the cheapest and most expensive models, so if youre on a tight budget and can cope without having every single drum miked, go for the best kick drum mic and pair of overheads you can afford you can then add extras as your budget allows. On the other hand, if you must have all drums covered, then some of the boxed sets now on the market offer incredible value. Of course if money is no object, then go for the best of both worlds! |
