I bought this product together with my Audix i5 microphone for miking snare drums in cases where space around the snare drum too limited to use mic stand. The clip performs as designed, it allows you a lot of freedom positioning the microphone and will fit any snare drum out there. Be sure to use a microphone that has good handling noise damping, otherwise you may end up with some vibrations transfer from the snare drum rim. Also make sure your mic holder is tightened very strong to this holder so it won't unscrew during the show. I have not seen this clip ever come off the drum on it's own and I've been using it for four years now in live sound performance. The design also makes it very easy and quick to change snare drums during changeover with retaining the position relative to the snare. I recommend this product for live use.
