There are many ways to mic up a drum kit but if you want to capture everything at once collecting all the mics you need can be complicated and expensive. AKG have got your back though with the Drum Set Concert 1 which contains all of the mics you need to record most standard drum kits with kick, snare, three toms, and overhead mics.

The Complete Set

There are a few essentials to recording any drum kit. This normally is miking up the snare, kick and overheads at the least and if you really want control over the fills you would mic up the toms as well. As long as you are using a fairly regular kit layout then this mic set can do just that in your studio or live setup.

The Kick

When recording a kick drum you want a big, strong dynamic microphone that can take a lot of preasure. One of the industry standards for this job is the AKG D112 MkII which is what you get in this set. Built in a tour grade housing this mic sounds great for pretty much any style depending on where you put it in relation to the kick. Fit it deep inside to really hear the click of the pedal on a metal track or take it further out for a low down thud that suits pop and rock.

The Snare and Toms

For mics to go with snare and toms you need something small, dynamic and very clear. The D40 dynamic mics inluded in this set are just that and they can even be directly mounted on to the drums to make set up as easy as possible. With the ability to stand SPL of up to 156dB and a crisp cardioid capsule inside these mics are pefect for recording a full set of toms and a snare where you have a wide band of frequencies all sounding at once.


There are loads of different techniques and styles when it comes to overhead recording but one thing stays the same and that is the use of cadioid condensor microphones. Small or large diaphragm doesn't matter as much as the response and clarity in the high end with these. The C430 is an very small microphone that can be easily elevated up high above a drum kit in an overhead position and sounds great when picking up cymbal, snare and tom hits.

Here's what AKG say about the Drum Set Concert 1

The Drum Set Concert I professional drum microphone set provides a complete collection of mics designed to withstand even the toughest stage environments.

The collection features the latest version of the legendary D112 MKII bass drum mic, the compact C430 overhead mic, and the popular D40 drum microphone. Each features high maximum SPL handling and rugged metal casing to ensure great sound, night after night.
