I have had the Samson 8Kit since 2007 and have used it tons of times since then. It is an 8 piece microphone kit that comes with 2 condenser microphones that are for overhead, and 3 tom mics, a kick, snare, and cymbal microphone. This is a very basic kit for recording your drums, but it is a great kit to have if you are getting into getting your first set of drum microphones. Picking out microphones for your drum set can be a long process, this kit takes out the brain work and gets you what you need right out of the box.


You are getting 8 microphones with this kit for 400 dollars. The snare drum mic and 3 tom mics come with clips so you can clip them right to your drum. All of the mics are good and give you a natural tone. But to me the one microphone that does not sound very good is the kick microphone. It does not bring those low end thump frequencies out in the kick that I like to have. I had to replace the kick microphone with a different brand a few times until I found one that I liked.
The kit comes with a case to carry your microphones in to keep them clean and damage free. Samson also offers a 5 microphone kit that is a little cheaper in case you don’t want the full kit. But after comparing this kit by Samson with the Shure PGDMK6 kit, I realized that the Samson 8Kit was no good compared to a good Shure drum microphone kit. If you are a beginner and just want to start recording your drums then this kit will work great. But wait till you hear the quality difference in the PGDMK6!
I do regret getting this 8 piece Kit now. But at the time I was very happy to have my first drum mic kit. But knowing what I know now I would not have got it.
