If you are searching for the best drum mic kit, there is a few things that we need to consider. Firstly, do you need drum a drum mic kit? For example, I have 5 SM57 BETA mics for my recording rig that I could use on stage. The downfall of doing this is that these kits have clips that make it easy to attach for that particular mic. It saves time having those clips which is what brought me to purchase a drum mic kit. However, if you are on a budget, keep in mind that it is an option.
Do You Need Drum Overhead Mics
In my experience with live sound, I have found that the need for drum overheads depend on the size of venue you are running. It would be absolutely unnecessary to have overheads in a smaller venue as cymbals get pretty loud naturally. However, if you plan to use the drum mic kit that you purchase in the studio too, you may want to have a couple condenser mics available. Note that condenser mics can get a little higher in price than dynamic microphones. For more on the different types of microphones, check out our article over that here.
