10/10
Editor's Choice

Lewitt DTP Beat Kit Pro 7 is a stunning quality premium set of drum mics that beats pretty much anything in the $1,000 range. The value for money is simply amazing, because this kit includes two externally polarized LCT 340 as overheads, for which alone it is actually worth buying! Toms, snare and kick mics are excellent too – for dynamics, they offer a breathtaking amount of detail and clarity without compromising their low-end response….

Samson 8kit – Drum Microphone Kit Review

Samson 8kit – Drum Microphone Kit Review
7/10

Samson 8kit is a great choice for 8-piece recording.

To our surprise, it sounds well above par.  It takes the middle course of bringing more of a balanced sound and maximum transparency, suiting a variety of drums with little to no adjustment. The mics of course, are not premium but they are very decent…
