Default 100 dollar Pyle drum mic sets

Not bad at all! Loved the tom, snare and overheads, not quite the kick so much, but it sure works. Definitely not a barrier to getting good drum tracks!

emm .. let me see .. if i remember it correct i took a software named
reaper , loaded your video (after downloading from youtube, psst ..
safefromnethelper helped with that) into it and after a cutting,
pushing and pulling and whatever i got a result, rendered it as video and
there we are.
You need the rpp with sourcevideo and gif? (i converted the video to a
gif as the gif that reaper can render is not good enough for my needs)


i updated http://www.bobobo.de/reaper/pipeline/
and here is the gif itself

I've heard mic setups worth 10 times as much sound worse, but I suspect that's your expertise rather than mic quality

I was handling the live audio for a low budget monthly live music series last year in the city library system. The mics they had were mostly Pyles. I had a lot of occasions to use them with the whole gamut of instruments, both for the house and in recording, and those cheap buggers were a pleasant surprise. I can't remember what model they were but they were ordered by non-audio pencil pushers so I can guarantee they were at least close to the cheapest available.

One caveat was the terrible handling noise (maybe of that particular model). And they had a cheesy, lightweight feel that didn't inspire confidence that they would survive a fall off a stand. But they sounded pretty darn ok.

I think one of the issues with the kick mic may be that it does have some large amounts of handling noise...I filled it with expanding foam today, we shall see, when the kids are done practicing Ill swap the kick mic back out for the pyle

I like the sound. Gear is not the reason anymore why one can't record great tunes. As I'm used to say, the real magic happens in front of the mic.

The kick mic is incapable of gating but a D112 with the Pyle kit is fine.
I actually prefer cheaper kit mics live since the difference between them or Earthworks can't be heard in a live mix.
Don't ever get their rackmounted power conditioner.
They start shorting out after a few months.

Funny thing about mics.
There's 3 different diaphragm makers in the world.
All 3 in China, all mics use the same diaphragms.
Only real difference is certain Electronics.
Recently bought a few Shure KSM8s because of a radical Dual diaphragm design.
Fantastic broadcast quality.
A little pricey but definitely hear a difference from Heil PRs Sennheiser 57s 58s and these.
Other mics sound a little brighter a little duller, these just sound mastered.

But no difference on Pyles or Earthworks other than their kick or the price...

That's not the full story. The design of the capsule has a large impact on the tone and pickup patterns too.

What do you mean the kick isnt capable of gating? Its gated there.

Maybe the handling noise might make it harder to gate than the D112, but it gates fine

The real beauty was the ease of gating the toms and snare, though who knows how well it would work in regular amatuer drummer hi hat and cymbal position. Not that the 421 works better there, its worse. Those sennheiser e604's do ok there though
