The Drum Microphone Challenge!

Mike @424Recording wanted me to try my Gold Realistic Low-Bais microphone for drums. I decided to do one better and did 8 microphones on the drum set.

Here are all the microphones that I used on this test in order of appearance:

  • FIFINE K035
  • Realistic PZM
  • Pyle PDMICR425L (retro-microphone)
  • Shure SM58
  • Realistic Low Bais (Gold)
  • Shure SM57
  • Pyle PDMIC78 (SM57 Copy)
  • Behringer B-1
