Default Microphone Splitter Question

I just purchased a set of Microphones for my hand drums and our mixer does not have enough inputs for all of my mics and the rest of the band's mics. What is the technical term of the item that I need to buy to eliminate this problem? We are keeping the same mixer so buying a larger mixer with more inputs is out of the question. Is the item called a microphone splitter? I found something that I think may be the correct item.

ART S8 8-Channel Balanced Mic Splitter
The ART S8 can be used to split eight balanced low impedance microphone signals into sixteen (eight pairs). Each channel of the S8 Microphone Splitter provides one direct output and one transformer isolated output from a single microphone, making it the ideal signal splitting solution for dividing mic signals for separate Front-of-House monitor mixes, or for remote recording applications. The direct outputs pass phantom power from the main mixer to the microphones for use with condenser microphones. The S8 includes a ground-lift switch on each isolated output to reduce hum due to ground loops between connected AC-powered units. For versatility the S8 mic splitter also features an attenuator pad switch on each input that can be used to connect preamplified signals to the two microphone-level outputs on each channel. Typical preamplified signals would originate from instrument preamplifiers, mixers, keyboards, etc.With such an extensive history of making audio processors, ART has consistently set new industry standards and watched competitors follow their innovation and the ART S8 Microphone Splitter is no exception. ART continues to set the bar for high-quality audio products at a reasonable cost to audio enthusiasts of all types.

Does that look right?

Thanks in advance guys/girls!

I would just use a sub mixer. You can pic up a decent 8 channel yamaha mixer for less than £200
