Yep. Pretty happy with it so far. But I think you need to choose this method for the right reasons. If I had a smaller kit, frankly, I would have gone with it in the bass only because it is just plain more flexible to not have mics mounted in your drums. Good reasons to do it are:
- Speeds setup/tear down.
- You are tight on space for mikes in your kit.
- You just don't like having to play around mikes (although this doesn't completely go away with internal mikes either).
- You have a large kit, are close miking and want to minimize bleed.
