I use this mic kit for wedding and pub gigs mostly. I have found that the clips work well with the snare mic, however when micing the whole kit (4piece) you'll find you need an additional mic stand or clip. It's a shame there aren't three clips in the set, but there is space in the case to add a clip and another tom mic. The case is light and has protected my mics very well. It has only been in the back of the van a couple of times as I didn't trust it to not get damaged with all the other gear. The build quality is probably strong enough, but I felt the need to put it in the side just incase (paranoia). Good piece of kit!
