CAD PRO-7 Drum Microphone Kit

Gearank Recommendation

The PRO-7 was on our recommended list for Drum Mic Kits from May 2017 until April 2020 when it was out-ranked by other mic kits.


CAD Audio is known for offering robust microphones at a low-cost.

The PRO-7 from CAD Audio contains these microphones: one K212, three TM211s, one SN210, and 2 CM217s.

The KM212 is a large diaphragm microphone that is designed for kick drums, bass guitar cabinets, and other instruments with low frequency response. It features good transient response with a wide frequency range for precise bass clarity and detail.

The TM211s are dynamic mics designed for toms with attached drum mount clips.

The SN10 dynamic microphone is specifically designed for snares with an integrated shockmount clip. It also has a supercardioid pattern with wide frequency response and is even suitable for toms and bongo drums.

The CM217 mini pencil condenser mics come in pairs, and are specifically designed for hi-hats, overheads, and also string instruments. They feature an external 6dB / octave roll-off at 200Hz to compensate for close miking proximity effect. These two condenser microphone need 9-52V phantom power in order to operate.
