  • "I use the RN17 matched-pair as overheads in an X/Y setup which gives an awesome overall drum sound, not only cymbals. The highs of the RN17s are pristine but they also have great low-end and depth which is very usable in a mix."

  • "For shells I’m using the V Beats which just sound like a finished/processed drum sound without me doing anything."

    — Buster Odeholm
  • "I use the sE4400a matched-pair as additional cymbal mics for each side of my drum set which gives me increased depth and perspective over my kit which is very spread out since I play open handed."

  • "I'm also using the sE8s for room mics, snare bottom and additional cymbal spot mics - they work great for capturing that high end but also some great mid frequencies in the room too."

    — Buster Odeholm
  • "I activate the EQs on the V Kick to get some clickyness and attack which is great for metal. The option to turn it off is also great if you're recording a different genre which just shows how versatile the mics are."
