I bought a few of the EV PL-series drum-mic kits,,, the 7pc kit with a PL-33 (kick) four PL-35's (toms/snare), and a pair of PL-37's for o'heads.,,,, and I also bought the 5pc kit ( 1 PL-33 and 4 PL-35's). With the PL-33's, I got a very good kick sound, right out of the box, and I've been quite happy with the PL-35's as well.
A few years back, they were giving these things away. MF had them on their Stupid-Deal-Of-The-Day for $99 I believe (5pc kit). The 7pc kit, last time I looked, was going for $649.
The N/D868 seems to get some very good reviews for kick, as well as bass-cabs. I've also got a Senn 900-series kit (e902's (kick), 904's (toms) /,e905 (snare) w AKG C-451b's for o'heads, which I bought for studio use..
I've been using the PL35 on toms with the PL33 on floor for some time now. With a tight Q pull around 350hz on the toms and 320hz on the floor and they are good to go. The drum mount is very sturdy but hard to put on some kits. I've thought about using a dremel on them for some time but have not as of right now.
