Title: Professional sound at a cool price
Author: Thomas Adam
Translated from the original German article
The standard pro set for the bass drum includes the TG D50d. This dynamic microphone is 10.5 cm long and at the thickest part it has a diameter of approximately 4.5 cm so that it also fits through very, very small openings in the membrane.
The reproduced sound has powerful deep basses and clear attack, which gives the bass drum more power. Nevertheless I would add higher, normal basses making the bass drum sound richer. Whoever wants to shape further, can do this, but there is no need to. As an alternative we recommend placing the TG D50d closer to the membrane to make the sound fuller with the help of close miking effect.
Conclusion: The new microphone drum sets from beyerdynamic are interesting for those who want a fair price for sound and processing quality coupled with an easy handling.
The microphones of the TG series are already inexpensive and in a bundle they are even more inexpensive. With the tested Drum Set Pro S you save more than 160 Euro (RRP) compared to the unit price and receive a handy bag for transport free of charge. The fact that some of the microphones are manufactured by hand in Germany emphasises their quality
