I saw a vid at youtube..a band was playing live..the drums were so good sounding...i messaged the drummer and asked her what was the model..
she told me "Pearl Target"...i couldnt belive it...a pearl target had a nice tone like that, she after told me that the kit had many mics..Do the mics make difference on sound of a kit??

:S

Decent drums, great heads, proper tuning, good mics with knowledgeable placement, somethings to mix 7 to 10 mics and some experience. That should do it. Oh, and something to feed the output of your mixer into. The biggest improvement would be the heads and proper tuning.

Tuning, (probably) heads and mics are probably the only reason they sound good...

You would spend just as much if not more on good mics and a mixer as you would on a new better sounding kit.
