A good microphone set for recording beginners with small budget
Timo519, 18.02.2014
I used the t.bone DC 1500 microphone set for alot of recording sessions and live gigs for over 3 years!
I learned with these mics how to record a drumset and found out that you can also create with cheaper microphones an acceptable sound.

The Set comes with a hardcase and the mountings for the mics, which is a very big plus! The mics are protected and you dont need any further accessories for the mics.

the mics on focus:

-BD300-
I only tested the BD300 on bassdrums. It offers a low-mid sound with no recognizable hi-kick. But with a little bit EQing and compression on your mixer you can make the sound more attackful and warmer than the original sound.
The quality of the material feels and looks heavy and almost undestroyable. Even the thread makes a really tough look.

-CD65-
This mic is made for toms and snares. For myself I like this mic more on toms because of the mid/bass tuned sound. unfortunately I miss the clarity here. If you use it on snares it sounds very flat and attackless.
A plus for this mic is the clip mount for the drums. You dont need an extra mic stand. Also the quality of the mic case isnt that bad! It can take alot of stick hits.

- EM500-
Is getting used as overheads for the drumkit (or other instruments).
The sound is not very clearly, more mid-lowish. I would set this mic more for percussions or acoustic guitars - ist not recommended for room recordings. The good thing is that the EM500 has installed a lo-cut filter- and a -10db switch.
Also this mic needs 48V phantom power! If you aint got this in your mixer, it´ll probalby getting hard to use these mics.

All in all i can say is that you cant make anything worng with this mic, when you´re in the beginning of exploring the world of recording.
Even if someone would ask me what kind of drum micset for beginners i could suggest, my answer would be: the DC 1500!

Wow, amazing value for money, great quality and sound at a brilliant price!
stevedrummer5, 07.05.2015
I bought these as a cheap second set of mics, just to use live, while switching use of using my 'decent' mics (AKG D112 kick mic, Rode NT overheads, Shure SM57 and SM58 on snares) in my newly set up studio.

I am frankly amazed at this mic set. from the moment I opened the nice padded carry case and picked them up - the tom and snare mics feel nice and reasonably heavy and robust, as good quality, vastly more expensive branded mics are. The clips are good quality and nice and secure when attached to the rims. The kick mic is extremely heavy and robust, feels great quality It also happens to fit through a kickport (which I was dismayed to find the industry standard AKG D112 wouldn't fit through!) which was very useful for me as I'd just fit one to my kick drum! The overheads by comparison are very tiny (the smallest I've seen) and lightweight, nicely unobtrusive over the kit. They would also make a nice unobtrusive hi hat mic...

Sound wise I was immediately impressed with this set! The kick mic is awesome, it has a larger diaphragm and more bottom end than most (I have achieved a very beefy sound through my band's 400w front of house PA speakers at gigs without using the extra subwoofer speaker!), and I think equally on a par with the AKGD112 (although it is not quite as defined so you may need to EQ it a little more to get a 'clickier' sound. The tom/snare mics sound great on toms, nice and warm but with plenty of punch still, although not comparable to an sm57/8 when used on snare if you're after a meaty crack (but you can hardly expect that at this price can you).- live, you can still get a pretty good sound from these on snare especially if you clip it to the underneath pointing right at the snare wires! The overheads are good too, and have unexpected roll-off toggle switches on the side. Again not as impressive my Rode NT's at recreating the cymbals but I think each of my Rode's cost as much as this whole set. These overheads are certainly usable and again unexpectedly good at this price point.

Overall I couldn't recommend this set enough to anyone wanting a decent sounding, good quality, comprehensive whole set of drum mics for live use (I am yet to record significantly with these [they sounded great unmixed but haven't spent time mixing with them] but reckon they'd be fine for project studios, demos, maybe not professional recordings for commercial release - maybe see other reviews from people who've recorded with them ) at a frankly crazily low price - basically for the price of one or two decent mics you can get this whole set. They're so cheap, you could just buy them for the great kick & tom mics!

Very decent mics, very good for the price, I love them, have a nice sound and very authentic
Good for the price and quality, 18.06.2021
Love the mics, the kick mic is the best one, the snare/tom mics are very neutral when placed, gotta love the overheads, you can really use them very good if placed intentionaly right. really will not ever do these mics away, very handy with mounting and the quality is pro, when tweaked pro, even better.

The easy, all-around mic kit!
15.05.2016
If you are a drummer wondering what mic kit to buy first, this is the one!
With the t.bone DC 1500 mic kit you will get a set containing 1 BD-300 bass drum microphone, 4 CD65 dynamic snare/tom microphone with rim attachments and 2 EM500 overhead condenser microphones with clips included: that's right, it's 7 microphones! All the microphones respect the standards for frequency and dynamic response, are easy to mount and stay in place. For each microphone, a specification sheet is included. As an added value, you get a sturdy all-comprehensive case with the package, perfect for carrying your mics around while touring. Actually, these mic kit could be the ideal touring companion, but don't be fooled by the price: these mics could surprise you even in the studio! They deliver a clean, powerful and manageable signal that sounds balanced even with a flat-EQ setting. So, if you're wondering what mic kit you should buy first, this is the one! And thanks Thomann for making it happen!
