    Digital Reference ain't bad. The clips can be a little tough to work with, but they get the job done.

    I'm a big fan of Audix, but they're a bit more expensive.

    Buy Digital Reference DR-DRM7 7-Piece Drum Microphone Kit with Case | Percussion Microphones | Musician's Friend

    Buy Audix Fusion Series 6-Piece Drum Microphone Pack | Percussion Microphones | Musician's Friend
    I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous.

    Just a heads up on CADs. They're cheap, yes, but I'd steer clear of them. I have a set and after a few years, one of the tom mics inexplicably stopped working (hadn't been dropped or hit). The clips are extremely easy to work with, the overheads aren't bad at all, but for an extra few bucks you can get smoother response and much better quality sound with other things (DR and Audix).
