This company, equation audio, broke off of the company CAD and started making similar budget mics. I looked into their alpha package and it seems really reliable. Does anyone have any reviews on these mics? Im thinking of getting the 7-piece drum mic alpha package to start me off and then maybe getting an sm57 and another condenser to add onto that. I wanna know if the equation audios are reliable. If not, what would you recommend as a mic package around the $300 range that would be good for starting me off? NOTE: Im also looking into using these as a double usage - like micing a bass amp with the kick mic or something like that.
