Product Description

Shure's PGDMK6XLR 6-Mic Pack includes 6 microphones: one PG 52 for the kick drum, three PG56 mics for the snare and toms drums, and two PG81s for overheads to capture your cymbals. Shure has included all the cables and clips you need, too. There's no denying that a drum kit is one of the toughest instruments to record. But with the Shure PGDMK6 6-mic drum pack, you don't have to break the bank to get the gear you need. Start tracking rehearsals, demos, and more with the most complete drum package for the money.

Package Includes:

- Three Shure PG56 microphones for snare and toms
- One Shure PG52 kick drum microphone
- Two Shure PG81 overhead condenser microphones
- Tough road case
- Shure A50D drum mounts
- 6 XLR cables

Perfomance Gear Microphones

Shure's PG series of microphones are the pro-quality, versatile introduction to Shure engineering excellence. With a lineup that includes XLR and USB side-address condenser models, Shure's Performance Gear series microphones bring legendary Shure durability and sound quality to an entry-level price point. With many of the essential features found in their SM-series bigger brothers, PG-series mics are purpose-built for the budget-minded musician -- and with the same two-year warranty that covers all Shure's products. The PGDMK6 set combines 6 of these cost-effective mics, along with all the accessories, in a kit that's ideal for tracking drums in project studios. This set is also a fantastic value for club owners -- or for the gigging drummer that likes to bring mics to the gig. Live or in the studio, these sturdy Performance Gear mics live up to Shure's long-standing reputation.

The Most Complete Drum Mic Kit

Drum mic packages with only 3 or 4 mics can't possibly cover your whole kit. With 6 quality mics, the Shure PGDMK6 set is a complete drum mic solution in a box: a Shure PG52 kick drum mic, 3 PG56s for your snare and toms, and 2 PG81 small-diaphragm condensers for use as overheads -- plus clamps, 6 XLR cables and a hard plastic case to protect your investment. The included A50D clamps are designed to attach directly to any drum rim, with flexible hard plastic that won't scratch your shells or hardware. Their sturdy plastic arms cushion each PG56 mic from your drums' direct vibrations, while the attached thumb screw threads onto the PG56's built-in swivel mount. You'll also find that your three PG56 mics are more compact than the typical handheld-style mic that usually ends up on snare and toms. The shorter PG56 is much easier to place, staying well out of the way of a vigorous drummer's sticks.

Beyond the Drums: The PG52 Mic on Bass Amp

It's no secret that the PG52 included in this drum mic package pulls double duty as a killer bass-amp mic. But it's the two PG81 condensers that can give you serious flexibility. True, the PG81s are fantastic on drum overheads. But you'll discover that they are true workhorse mics on acoustic instruments like guitar, banjo, mandolin -- and even paired up on piano. You can use these mics anywhere it makes sense to use a pair of small-diaphragm cardioid condensers. Try setting up the PG81 pair in an X-Y stereo pattern to record the audience at your next show. Shure even throws in AA batteries to power your PG81 condensers, in case your mixer isn't able to provide phantom power.

Anyone who's ever recorded a drum kit knows it's a painstaking process. Not only do you need a set of quality microphones, clips, stands, and cables (not to mention a color-coded chart to navigate the mess of XLRs you've created), you're also going to need a well-thought-out plan for mic placement, to make sure there's not too much bleed from one drum to the next. And then there's the matter of getting close enough to the drumheads without getting in the way of the drummer's pounding sticks. Sound like a lot of work? It is. Thankfully, Shure takes the guesswork out with the PGDMK6 6-mic package.

Performance Gear Microphones provide a complete vocal, instrument and drum selection and feature many of the same durability and performance attributes of other Shure microphones at an attractive price. Includes 6 microphones; one PG 52 for the kick, three PG56's for the snare and toms, and two PG 81s for use as overheads. This kit is complete with all cables and clamps needed to plug and play, packaged in a hard-shell carrying case. Real gear without compromise. As serious as you want to get.

- Internal shock mount for reduced handling noise.
- Durable metal construction.
- On/off switch for onstage control.
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (55 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent mic kit, GREAT VALUE!"
Sound: This product is excellent! It's a perfect entry level kit for a home studio-based application. I am very pleased with the response of the condensor microphones. They pick up cymbals beautifully, then can be applied to recording guitars, overhead, vocals, etc. Feature: This kit came with cables and mounting clips for the toms/snares. All you will need is a few mic stands and you're good to go. Ease of Use: They are microphones, you need phantom power or AA Batteries for the condensors. Quality: Very rugged metal enclosures with a ver nice, padded carrying case. Value: The best bang for your buck PLUS zZounds price matched a much lower price. Don't be afraid to ask for a lower price! Manufacturer Support: I've not needed to use Shure Support, but I'm sure they rock. The Wow Factor: Very appealing design, but slightly bulkey. Overall: The only mikes I'll need to record my bands demo.
Style of Music: Metal to Rap, anything in between

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent Mics for the price!"
Sound: Excellent. Excellent. Excellent! Perfect Mid-Price mic set from Shure. Feature: The clips are very friendly to drums and do not pick up additional shock. The overheads have excellent fidelity. Quality: Lots of plastic used... but again, these aren't the "cream of the crop" Shure products. The key is the sound... and on that front, they pass the test in flying colors! Value: Skip the CADs... get these! The Wow Factor: Fidelity, fidelity, fidelity! Get some additional SM-57's for your snare and you have a perfect drum mic set!
Style of Music: Rock, Christian, Hip-hop
