Default AKG Groove pack !

Welcome.
I thought about buying a set of microphones.
I'm interested in AKG Groove Pack. How it works?
for me it is available for around $ 390, and is still 7kit Samson for about $ 320

So how does akg? and how does AKG vs Samson?

Not familiar with the Groove Pack but I do know AKG makes stellar mics. I've done live sound a few times for other bands and the mics we've always used have been AKG and Shure. Great stuff. Samson is decent too but I'd go the extra mile and get the AKG's. Plus if you ever decide to sell them AKG has WAYYY better resale value than Samsons.

BTW do you live in the US? Or which country? If you can get your hands on the Electro-Voice kit they make good drum mics too. I got the DK7 drum mic set on a clearance for $99 about 2 years ago (normally a $500 mic set!! I'm so glad I snatched them!) and they rock my world.

Good find.
It's so - interested me very much this akg set.
Is competitively priced, because it contains cables, Shure PG pgdmk6.

Ask you for help

So my question to record at home, amateur to their own needs.
AKG Groove Pack or Shure PGdMK6?

I too am not familiar with the grove pack. What does it include for a bass drum mic? I have the AKG D112 and I couldn't ask for a better mic. All I ever here is good things about AKG. You might be on to something good with this grove pack business.

SHURE PG series stuff is not really that great, in my opinion. They will get the job done but they are budget mics.

Try checking out some other options.

Hey. I made a real big look about PGfdmk6 vs AKG Groove
I had both sets in my small sticky hands.

So AKG are smaller and lighter. The big difference in weight.
P17 are much smaller than PG81 (Pg my place for batteries)
PG have a more possibility of setting to the drum but they have larger clips.

AKG look better for me, so shiny, hehe.
Both sets seem very robust and carefully made​​.

You can not set any negatives for these sets. I'm more like for AKG.
*

I did not get to test them personally but I found a lot of recordings of these sets (for AKG little less)

In the final conclusion, I feel that AKG is much more open than the Shure.
This seems to be caused by a kick sound. Characteristics pg52 is not for me. As for me, the recordings can be heard specific kick, which is not enough natural.

It's just a feeling that makes the recording available on the network

AKG comes out cheaper, sounds more open and natural (kick)
so my choice falls on AKG.

I'll tell you later, or not wrong with that natural sound

Yes, if one were to pick SHURE for a kick mic, the Beta 52 or 91 are both better choices. Glad you went with AKG's.
