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!

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!
