I can't think of a better kit to buy for the Price. The C02 might be the best mics Samson makes, then you get 5 additional mics for the rest of the kit. I used the 2 overheads, 2 toms, snare and the kick mics on a Gretsch Catalina maple kit. I tune the kit deep and warm. As far as the sound I was looking for, it sounds great on each individual drum. To brighten the overall sound, you may mix in more of the overheads, the condensers are crisp.
