Shure PGADRUMKIT7 Drum Microphone Kit

Gearank High Notes

Shure is well known for their road worthy dynamic vocal and instrument mics, including drum mikes. The PGADRUMKIT5 is a bundle of five mics, first of which is a PGA52 kick mic which is fine tuned to handle the punchy sound and harsh lows of a kick drum. There are also three PGA56 mics that are designed to better handle the frequencies of toms, and are versatile enough to work with other percussion instruments. Last but not the least is the Shure PGA57 mic, with its ability to handle the high sound pressure levels of snare. It also comes with the necessary tools for setup, including mounts, clips and even XLR cables - all of which are packed inside a road worthy case.

Based on reviews, build quality seems to be the standout feature, but there are also many reviewers who commend this bundle for its sound quality. The snare mic in particular, caught the attention of many reviewers, with how it handles both soft and loud playing. Noise rejection also gets a good number of comments, which makes this microphone package easier to manage on the mixing board.


There are a few users who felt that the sound was too flat. To that effect, some recommend doing EQ adjustments before judging its performance, to get the most out of this mic kit.


With its consistent high ratings, and big brand backing, the Shure PGADrum kit5 is highly recommended in this price range.
