I've used these as my first pair of condenser microphones, and my only regret is that I didn't buy these 8 years ago when I first started playing. Perfect small condenser microphones for a beginning or practiced drummer.
They catch the nuances of bright cymbals very well, and the entire package brings you most of the tools to make a nice X/Y setup or similar. Case is nice for transportation, and the mics themselves are quite sturdy.
To hear them in function, you can check out my band Intig (depressive black metal) or the first release of møl (shoegaze metal). I've used them in both projects, and have been very happy with them.
I bought these mikes specifically for use as drum overheads. I have used them in an XY, and AB spaced position, as well as using the Recorderman technique - see the end of this review for a brief explanation.
The mics are well made, and feel solid. They provide a three-position switch for flat, low-pass or -10dB pad response. The -10dB pad is particularly useful for miking loud percussive instruments such as a drum kit. The cardiod response is good for minimising off-axis response, which is useful if your recording space is less than stellar or too boxy.
They have proven solid and reliable performers. Their response time is good which makes them very well suited for percussive instruments. Frequency wise, they have a good response which is not over-hyped at the high-end like some other cheap mikes. Noise hasn't been an issue. Stereo wise, they provide a solid,coherent image which I find particularly appealing.
My favoured setup is Recorderman overhead drum mic technique. Basically one of the mikes is placed directly above the centre of the snare drum about two drum sticks in height. The other one is placed roughly above the drummer's shoulder, on the floor tome side, also pointing towards the centre of the snare, at an equal distance. This provides a balanced sound for the entire kit, without too much room sound. You can vary the position of the second mike to get more/less volume from the bass drum.
Excellent value, and a bargain at the price. I would certainly buy them again.
