It is great for the money
Marshall363, 20.01.2018
I was thinking of buying some mics to expand my little mic collection so i can record acoustic guitar, drums, maybe small live acoustic band. I needed a matched pair of small condensers, a bass drum mic, and some dynamic mics for toms and guitar cabs, maybe some bacing vocals. So I was looking for individual mics like AKG D112, Rode M5 and that was my budget. I was suprised when I found out this mic pack and its price. It was every mic I wanted and it was cheeper then buying each mic seperate. I know that D112 and Rode M5 maybe better than these, but I took a chance and bought this pack. Man...if you buy 4 seperate P4 mics you end up spending 200Eur, but with this pack you save a lot of money.

(The mics)

P2 is really great Kick drum mic, nothing bad i could say about the sound. It has a high and low frequencey boost that is nice sounding, and it is sounding more like Shure BETA 52. The only thing that looks not that great is the part where you srew in mic stand and connect your XLR cable, it is made from plastic, but I don't know how much it will last. I just hope that it doesn't break.
P4 These are just great. I love them for toms. They have just the right amount of high frequencey boost . Would want some more low end, but for the projects i record i love the tom sound. These are great in every way. And the clamps that come with these are superb. It is so easy to use them, just clip on them to your drums and done.
P17 are very nice for overheads. They are very linear, but you can defenitely hear 10k boost on them. Somethimes hihat or crashes are to harsh, but that depends on the mic placement and the cymbals you use. But i like the sound.

Even if I like the High frequency boost on all of them , it can get harsh very fast, so you have to place the mics with that in mind. The noise from these are audible, so they are not the worlds quietest mics, but it has not made provlems in the past with these.

I think for the money these are just great. Buy them if you don't have more money. These will be great for live and studio. And it is an AKG brand name, so you don't have to feel bad about your cheap mics.

Professional drum mic set at a reasonable price
Zaczes, 30.05.2021
I was particularly impressed by the overhead pencil condensers - great dynamics, not overly bright, just nice and natural tone. Kick drum mic is probably the first thing I would upgrade, Audix D6 just completely destroys it in direct 1:1 comparison. Fortunately it can be used as an auxiliary floor tom mic, nice and beefy there - so you will still have use for it afterwards. Down the line I would probably also get better mic clips for the tom mics. The included ones are probably not going to last very long.

When the drums come to life 😇
Mirchy, 21.06.2021
As a complete beginner in recording drums, listening to recorded sound compared to other price comparable products, I find the set great.
If you use microphones for hobby/beginner level recording, these microphones are a good choice.
The microphones look robust, so they probably handle an unfortunate blow with a stick as well.
The set also includes a handy case for microphones.

AKGs are AKGs
Gaglianone, 05.01.2021
These inexpensive AKGs get the job done, and the quality of sound captured is mind-blowing for the price. I have an all-maple Mapex Orion, and the overheads are pristine and get the sound as clear as possible. All mikes go through a Soundcraft Signature 12 MTK, and if you have a decent knowledge of a good software (I tried them using Ableton Live, Cakewalk and Cubase), you will have NO REGRETS at all. Every now and then I might get the help of that ol' faithful SM 57 (and its clone, the AMAZING tbone mb75) for a more magical snare sound, but it's all about taste and what the song and mix is asking. I love my AKGs!

Miking up and recording a drum kit is a fairly complicated procedure, and this can apply equally to choosing the right mics for the job.
