I bought this mic with the intention to use it on a kick.
To start with, build quality of this mic, I would say, is phenomenal considering the price. I was really surprised when I first picked it up, as it feels robust and hefty.
Now, considering its recording capabilities, it definitely delivered when placed in front of the kick. It can manage really well on high pressure levels and the sound it produces is solid and detailed enough.
My only issue with this mic is its freq range (20-10k), unlike the akg d112 (20-17k), and I can say that lacking these 10k and above is an obvious loss for my ears. But then again buying this mic was a conscious choice, as I knew that in advance.
+ build quality
+ sounds great and definitely delivers
+ pouch and mount ring included
- Frequency range is a bit narrowed, missing all the crispy highs compared to AKG D 112 and similar mics.
Can definitely recommend this mic, as I find it a good choice for recording kick if you are looking for a full and warm sound.
