I love the Audix D-series mics, and use the D6 extensively on kick, but I've moved to the Sennheiser e604 for toms.

The Audix mics sound great, but in my experience the Audix mic clips break too much and I find the D-Vice clamps to be a pain; I much prefer the Sennheiser clamps and clips, and that's made the difference in my decisions.

I love the e906 on guitar cabs, but it and the e609 seem like they might be a bit large for toms; YMMV.

Alright once again, my decision has been altered. I will be using my current e602 on floor toms, and sm57 on snare. I am going to pick up 2 D2's for rack toms, and either a B52 or D112 for kick, not sure yet. And eventually, an AT Pro 37 for high hats. Compiled together this should give me a pretty decent sound without breaking my budget.

I agree with most of your choices EXCEPT your kick drum choices.

I'm in the camp that HATES the B52 in most cases and on most drums.   The D112 is better on a wider variety of drums but neither of them would be my first choice.

Of course "best mic for a kick drum?" is such a frequent question in here that it's become a running joke.

Use the search function and see what we've discussed endlessly in the past.

I've never asked what kick drum mic I should get. I've used several. I prefer the D112 for rock. Thump, click, got it. And, I've read a ton of threads here and other places. It comes down to preference. A million people like the B52, a million people like the D112, a million people like the D6, etc, etc,etc. I'm pretty set on the D112, but if you want to post your "first choice" feel free, but I'm not going to search for it.

Cool, sounds like you've done your research and used your own ears.

That's a good thing.

I guess I've gotten too accustomed to people asking questions in here who have done neither.

I keep waiting for the "what's the best kick drum mic stand" thread.  I have no special love for the ones I own.

We had that discussion a few years back.  If you search real hard, you'll find the picture of the one that Andy Peters posted and it was the best.  I don't think there will be any shootouts about them anytime soon though.

You must still have the old hard plastic clips.  The new (at least 5 years old?) clips have been 100% for me.

I agree that the Senny clips are pretty slick.  The trouble I have with the Audix is that some have a big-ass burr inside, and lock up - I have to prise on them to open them up.
