Overview

The DTP Beat Kit Pro 7 from Lewitt is a high-end set of drum mics recommended by audio engineers for professional use.

It contains a dual-element cardioid DTP 640 REX, three DTP 340 TT dynamic mics, two LCT 340 condenser mics and one MTP 440 DM cardioid dynamic microphone.

The DTP 640 REX kick mic has a dual design with both a dynamic and a condenser microphone capsule. It has switchable frequency response settings for a rich or flat sounding kick drum.

The three DTP 340 TTs have supercardioid polar patterns that accurately capture the sound of drums and percussion instruments with maximum isolation of instruments in studio and live applications.

The LCT 340s condenser mics have two interchangeable capsules: one cardioid and one omni. This allows easy switching over of polar patterns.

The MTP 440 DM is great for miking snare drums, amps and wind instruments.

This kit also has a selection of shock and drum mounts.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Drum Mic Kits.
