Bought one of these as an alternative to an sm57, the construction is very impressive extremely solid and sounds as good if not better than a 57
!

Excellent addition

I have been recording my drum kit in a home studio and the snare drum was seriously lacking feel and punch despite my best efforts in post production. I have an SM57 on the top head and this mic (although slightly cheaper) on the bottom head added so much more to the mix I was blown away. The depth and clarity of the snare drum (even during fast blast beats) has been improved tenfold. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone wanting to record snares, guitars or any instrument or sound within its comfort zone.

Well built and great for snare drum.

The build quality is very good. It's very similar to a shure sm57 with more top end. Currently I'm using it on bottom snare to pick up the snap with a beyer mc201 on top snare. For the price it is great value over similar mics with great performance.

like an sm57 with more clarity and more low end / top end

nice snare mic , adds a bit of brightness, nice transient as well
thought it a bit fizzy on guitars

also nice on smaller toms

tough build as well.

good mic - should be more famous .

Great alternative to the 57

Having already owned a few of the classic '57 dynamic microphone I was in the market for some more low budget mics that could compete. I'd read many reviews about the i-5 microphone being a great contender, some even calling it the '57 "killer". I was slightly skeptical about it all, but being somewhat cheaper than the '57, and cheap for any mic in general, I thought it would be worth taking a chance and give it a go.
I've had chance to try it out both live and in the studio and as expected it works great for snare and guitar cabs, vocals too. It is a somewhat transparent sounds with a less aggressive presence peak than some similar microphones in its price category. I'd say it is a sturdy, great value microphone, well worth the money and praise it's received.

Mic winner

Used for recording bass or guitar amp.

Want to use something different from the shure;
And for me, the Audix is better sounding.

Adds clarity and definition to the sound.

Used for Home studio, playing Jazz, fusion and Metal.
Excellent for metal because of this clarity that will let high frequencies pop out.
