Default Need Recommendation on Mic Kit

I am looking for a good mic kit for my current set up:

Toms = 4 up 1 down (10,12,13,14 &16)
Snare (14)
Single Bass (22)

I can't find a kit online that would provide the ability to mic each drum...... Any help would be appreciated....... Terry

To mic all those drums individually, plus something for your cymbals, is going to run into some serious cash, and take a long time to setup/breakdown.

Following advice received here, I been using a kick, snare, and one or two overheads (still tweaking) with good results on my son's kits for live sound.

The Audix DP7 mic pack would be decent quality (used by e.g. Todd Sucherman).
For your 4 tom setup you'd need one additional D4 (which would easily fit into that case).
Not the cheapest mic package on the market but worth the price in the longer run/if you're gigging on a regular basis.

Hope it's kosher to post a link to a nice review:

Seems fairly free from advertiser bias.

IMO, the Shure DMK57-52 mic pack is a solid way to go..................you would have to pick up three additional 57's to mic up everything. Just make sure you have enough inputs on your board / interface to accommodate all of the mics
