  1. Speeds setup/tear down.
  2. You are tight on space for mikes in your kit.
  3. You just don't like having to play around mikes (although this doesn't completely go away with internal mikes either).
  4. You have a large kit, are close miking and want to minimize bleed.
Awesome! I'm a fair ways away from getting my DW kit but i have PDP Platinums at the moment. I was thinking it would be a better choice for recording so i can get a nice isolation of each drum and because it's inside the drum itself it would limit the bleed from other mics.
