I have a set of Samson drum mics, previously purchased from Thomann, which are excellent for the money and which I use for live gigs. They have their own integral clips and I think they are an excellent purchase for the money; and whilst the integral clips are a great idea, I wanted the facility to use other mics. As yet, I do not own any top-name, specialised tom mics; but I would like to try mics like SM57s and Audix i-5s on tom duties; these clips will allow me to do that.
I read the reviews for the T-Bone drum clips, which were good, and decided it would be pointless for me to spend more than the price of this brand, given that my Samson set is normally used for live sound duties and I only need drum clips for home studio work.
The clips look great! They seem strong enough to handle operations, with due care. They also come with an clip thread adapter so you can choose what you need for each individual microphone.
Before you purchase, make certain you have accounted for how many clips you will need. Generally, you will want one for the snare mic and one for each tom mic. I bought three clips, which is one short of what I actually need but I can get around the problem by using a mic stand on one, which is a little silly, since the whole point of having drum clips is to dispense with having too many mic stands around the drummer. I'll will order another when I next buy from Thomann.
