Gearank Recommendation

The DMK-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.

Overview

The DMK-7 drum microphone kit includes four dynamic mics, one kick drum mic, and two condenser mics.

The DM70 dynamic mics included in this kit have a cardioid pattern that allows close miking and prevents bleed-through from other parts of the drum set. They can also handle up to 140dB SPL which helps in recording the loudest drums without distortion.

The DM80 kick drum mic has a neodymium element which delivers maximum output and has a rubber shockmount mic holder that minimizes floor vibration pick-up.

The two CM88 condenser mics are 9-52V phantom powered and have an extended frequency response for transparent and smooth sound reproduction.

The Nady DMK-7 is a good budget option, however there are more highly rated options recommended in our guide to The Best Drum Mic Kits.
