Great Snare Mic

Total rating

I use the mic for the underside (bottom) of the snare, and it does an top job, would probably be just as good on the topside (and better at noise rejection than an SM57).

Thoroughly recommended.

A Solid snare Drum Mic!

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 .

For me, this is the SM57 without it's flaws.

The i-5 is a straight up dynamic mic for use live/in the studio. Paired with a great mic pre, this mic sounds fantastic. After using an SM57 for many years, I was reluctant to give this a try at first, but having done a number of A/B's on various sources with the two mics, I'm confident to say that either mic will satisfy me on snare, guitar cabs and louder percussion.

If anything I prefer the i-5 for two reasons: firstly, the build is solid, no plastic spinning head on the end - and secondly, the mid range is just a little smoother, than high mid resonance within the 57 is gone.

Great job Audix.
