The Nady CYM-2 Drum Microphone Kit features a pair of CM88 instrument microphones, packaged in a rugged foam-lined storage case. The CM88 is a versatile small-diaphragm condenser microphone, well suited for general vocal capturing, instruments, amplifier cabinets, drums, percussion and more. This set is ideal for capturing overhead cymbals, stereo placement, etc. Its cardioid polar pattern manages off-axis ambiance and noise while delivering high gain-before-feedback. The rugged enclosure is made of aluminum, and is built to withstand the rigors of sound reinforcement and studio recording applications.

              I'm using these for drum overheads, and so far so good! I'm more a drummer than sound guy, so my experience is limited. However, I'm impressed with these mics...especially at [$] for a pair! I've got my kit mic'd up with '57's on the toms and snare, a beta-52 on the kick, and these CYM-88's overhead. Before adding any effects to my last recording, I muted '57 tracks while listening and was very impressed at what these mics picked up. Once I added dynamic effects, I was able to dial right in on the cymbals and everything blended well. I'm very happy with my purchase so far.
