Nady is known for affordable gear, so its not surprising at all to find them offering a good value five drum mic bundle.

But the Nady DMK-5 is not just about value because for the price, it continues to get solid reviews.

This package comes with 4 cardioid pattern mics that are meant for miking snares, toms and other percussion instruments. These mics feature neodymium element for high SPL handling.

The fifth mic, the DM80, is meant for the kick drum, having similar features but fine tuned for handling lower frequencies.

Note that you'll need separate overhead condenser mics for the cymbals, but given the price of the Nady DMK-5, it gives you more room for other gear.

Although this is a good budget option, there are more highly rated mics on our recommended list of The Best 5-Piece Mic Kits.
