Sabian SSKIT 4-Piece Drum Microphone and Mixer Kit

The Sabian Sound Kit is a three piece mic kit that comes with its own compact mixer, something that other manufacturers don't offer.

This three-channel personal drum mixer has a dedicated channel for capturing the kick drum via the included SK1 mic.

The other two channels are for capturing everything else via two SOH2 overhead mics.

The mixer also lets you monitor your sound via headphones through its 3.5mm and 1/4" jack outputs.

Kit Contents

  • Microphones: 1 x SK1 Kick Drum Mics, 2 x SOH2 Overhead Mics
  • Accessories Personal Drum Mixer with built-in Headphone Amplifier and SD Card Recording

Pros

Its combination of easy setup, intuitive mixer control and good value for money makes the Sabian Sound Kit appealing to drummers and home recording studios. It continues to exceed the expectations of many, even those who expect it to have an average sound quality are pleasantly surprised with the improved recording quality that they get. While it is meant to capture the entire drum kit along with ambient sounds, there are some who have gotten good results by combining this bundle with close proximity drum microphones. Stuart Williams of Music Radar gave the Sabian Sound Kit a perfect review score, and he writes that it is "a fantastic set".

Cons

Since the overhead mics are small diaphragm condensers, they are prone to catching ambient noise, limiting its use to rooms with good acoustics.

Overall

If you're looking for an affordable and easy to use method of miking your drum kit, then we suggest you get the Sabian Sound Kit.
