If you are looking to record a drum kit in your home or project studio set up, the AKG Project Studio Drum Mic Kit from B&H is for you. It includes 3 AKG D40 microphones for your toms, a Shure SM57-LC microphone for snare, a matched pair of Rode M5 small diaphragm condensers for overheads, a Shure Beta 52A for your kick, and an Avantone Pro CK-1 small diaphragm condenser for your high-hat.
The mics included in this kit are not uni-taskers, and can easily be used on a variety of other sources besides drums. The SM57-LC is also a standard choice for guitar cabinets, the D40s can be used on a variety of percussion sources, and the M5 matched pair can be used on acoustic guitars. For bass guitar, try the Beta 52A. The CK-1 includes 3 swappable capsules, providing increased versatility.
3 x AKG D40 Cardioid Instrument Microphone
The AKG D40 Cardioid Instrument Microphone is a rugged, road-worthy solution for capturing drums, percussion, guitar amplifiers, keyboard amplifiers and wind instruments in recording or live sound reinforcement applications.
The D40 features a cardioid polar pattern which is effective in minimizing off-axis feedback and noise by providing a focused pickup pattern. The patented AKG Varimotion diaphragm enhances audio quality and results in pristine audio reproduction.
The all metal construction and steel-mesh grille make the D40 rugged and able to withstand the rigors of life on the road. An integrated stand adapter and standard H 440 mounting bracket are included for mounting onto snare drums, tom-toms, etc.

The M5 Microphones from Rode are a matched pair of condenser microphones that have a variation of no more than 1 dB of sensitivity between them. The M5 itself is a pencil-style microphone that features a 1/2" diameter gold-plated membrane capsule with a cardioid polar pattern. The microphones have transformerless circuitry for low noise operation and can be used in typical live and studio applications for small diaphragm condenser microphones, including on acoustic instruments, choirs, as drum overheads, and more.
The M5s are finished with Rode's proprietary ceramic coating and each includes a WS5 windshield and RM5 microphone clip. The pair was designed and built in Australia and has a limited 1-year warranty that extends to 10-years with online registration.

Avantone Pro CK-1 Small-Capsule FET Pencil Microphone
The CK-1 Small-Capsule FET Pencil Microphone from Avantone features a durable pencil microphone design with a Cabernet Wine-Red finish, nickel trim, and a black grille. It is suitable for capturing overheads (cymbals), acoustic instruments, amplifier cabinets, and vocals. The CK-1 offers an interchangeable capsule design and includes three condenser capsules with cardioid, omnidirectional and hypercardioid polar patterns. The condenser capsules combined with an FET output stage provide clear detail and high-quality audio. There is a -10 dB pad (attenuation) switch and an 80 Hz high-pass filter switch for minimizing low-frequency noise. The microphone includes an SSM shockmount and a padded wooden carrying case.
High grade polystyrene and metalized polypropylene capacitors in the signal path
The CK-1 includes three 3/4" interchangeable capsules for a wide variety of miking possibilities
The SSM shockmount allows for precise positioning of the mic while inhibiting the transfer of unwanted vibrations
When miking high SPL sources, the -10 dB attenuation switch can be engaged to keep from overloading the electronics
The 80 Hz high-pass filter switch reduces rumble and unwanted low frequencies
Shure BETA 52A - Dynamic Instrument Microphone
The Shure BETA 52A is a dynamic supercardioid instrument microphone designed for capturing kick drum, acoustic bass, bass amplifiers and other instruments with similar frequency response and sonic character. The BETA 52A features a contoured frequency response, customized for capturing signal registering at low frequencies. The microphone accurately captures the attacks that contribute to the "punch" of the signal. The super-cardioid polar pattern insures the highest possible gain before feedback while minimizing noise at the off-axis sections of the microphone. A built-in locking stand adapter with XLR input simplifies installation when placing inside of a kick drum and it's steel mesh grill protects the element form damage.
Tailored Frequency Response
The low frequency response make it more than suitable for bass drum, acoustic and electric bass capturing.
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
The supercardioid polar pattern delivers the highest possible signal before feedback while minimizing noise at the off axis sections of the microphone.
The Neodymium magnet delivers higher gain levels than that of standard element magnets.
Shure SM57-LC Microphone
The Shure SM57-LC Microphone is a unidirectional dynamic microphone and a true professional workhorse used in many applications including the USA's presidential podium for over 3 decades. It is an exceptional choice for musical instrument pickup or for vocals. With its bright, clean sound and carefully contoured presence rise, the SM57-LC is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise.
In the studio, the SM57-LC is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds. For musical instruments or vocals, the SM57-LC is a consistent choice of professional performers. Its outstanding performance, legendary reliability, and application diversity make this workhorse the choice of performers, producers, and sound engineers all over the world.
