Sometimes drum microphone packs are simply a group of existing products packaged with a case, which can be a cool way to get several decent mics at a good price. But other times the packs are rebranded inexpensive transducers that are typically decent for the money and will do until you can afford something better. I usually recommend that you find solid individual models that will give you the results you want for the long term and that you buy only as many as you can afford, adding more along the way. Audix has totally redesigned its Fusion series drum microphones, which are available singly and in packs. These aren’t bundles of existing top-line mics (which are also available in packs); they’re entirely new models. They were designed by the same wizard who came up with the company’s popular D6, i-5, and SCX25A, with component manufacturing handled overseas and assembly and testing done back here.
