Drum Set Reviews From Sweetwater On YouTube


Silver Member
I've noticed that I rarely see a microphone within the drum set reviews by Sweetwater which ALWAYS sound great, regardless of the cost of the kit. That Nick D'Virgilio is quite the salesman, and excellent drummer as well.

I imagine they're using condensers positioned well away from the set. I guess this dispels the belief that miking everything is required for a kit to sound great, at least in a home or practice environment.

I've been using three AT 2020's to mic my setup and think it sounds great on playback. Had a feeling it would after seeing the results Sweetwater gets, albeit with much more costly mics and gear.
