Audio Technica XMD Mics?

I saw a mic package for 3 Audio Technica mics for 50 dollars. It's the XMD drum mic package. I looked around here for a little while and couldn't find anything on them. Anyone have any experience with these. I know it's only 50 dollars, and I should just get them and see .. but right now 50 dollars is a lot .. and if it's not useable at all, I don't want to waste the time and money. The mics are 2 - xm3 and 1 - xm9. Anyone ever use these?

I know this is an old post, and you've probably moved on from this issue, but just for those who might be finding this thread and looking for some advice...

I've seen the Audio-Technica XMD Drum Mic pack you're talking about. I haven't used this particular set, but in my experience Audio Technica is not the best mic for the job. If budget is your concern, then hold off and save up. You get what you pay for.

If you want cheap, a 3 pack of GLS Audio ES 57s would cost you about $80. You can start there. I own these mics and have used them to close mic my drum kit. They sound good for a low budget. I use a matched pair of Behringer C-2 condensers for my overheads.

Hope that helps!
