Can't go cheaper, so what can we really expect...
Dirty Five Given, 22.10.2020
This is the lowest you can go when buying a mic, so having any expectations of it other than it would generally pick up the frequencies in roughly the range it was advertised as, is too much.
It works. It's built cheaply. It can record your drums, but you're definitely gonna have a harder time mixing them, than if you used something more classy than this.
I still recommend it, because there's a lot of possible uses for very cheap microphones - eg. I use this one to record band practice.

JonnyK, 26.04.2016
I don't know why I spent years buying industry standard mics. This little mic, for the price, simply cannot go wrong. It's plastic, so I'm not sure it'd withstand too many errand hits, but really, it's quite fine for the purpose of mic'ing toms and snares. I have two toms I'm using these for, and seriously, a little corrective EQ, and it's absolutely fine for the vast majority of us home studio guys. You'd have to be pretty picky to want to spend 4 times the price on a mic that will maybe sound 10% better. What is the point... Cheap doesn't mean bad, not in this day and age!

Great startup mics
Stephane4242, 04.09.2018
Honestly there's nothing wrong here. Solid build quality, clamp is practical and solid. The sound is good overall. You know it's not a high quality mic but it captures the sound accurately without fuss. It's actually very clear. I find the clamp + mic on a 10" tom take a lot of space and you really need to carefully place it or accurately hit your tom because you'll end up hitting the mic with your stick.
Other than this for ¤25, if you do home recording and want to record your toms, there's no risk here and a surprising good enough quality.

Good quality drum mic
15.06.2014
This is an excellent quality drum microphone that clamps easily and securely onto any drum rim. It also fits onto a normal microphone stand, and band mates of mine have used these as very respectable sound vocal mic's in an emergency (the lead singer forgot the 'proper' mic's!)

Miking up and recording a drum kit is a fairly complicated procedure, and this can apply equally to choosing the right mics for the job.
