I have a friend who own the 7 piece mic kit. He's not any other drummer, he took part at the Montreal DrumFest 2004 He said he likes the shures or akg but CAD are good ones 2. did you ever tried one??? the price range vs quality seems good to me 45$ not 199.99$ as shure or akg. I own a 421 i just love it. what you think about all this???
