          I'm a percussionist and have enjoyed using this mic on congas, djembe, cajon, bongos, snares, toms, and occasionally vocals. Very Reliable. Very Durable. Great tone. This is a real hands on review from Sammy @ Sam Ash Sarasota

            Comments about Audix i5 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

            I had not heard much about Audix mics, but when a friend recommended that I try the i5, I decided to give it a shot. Now I refuse to use anything else for my snare, acoustic guitars, and electric guitar mic applications. This mic gives the most accurate and sweetest sounding responses for all three of the above mentioned settings. My snares, especially, have much more punch and definition than other similar mics that I have used. Audix really hit the nail on the head with this one.

            Comments about Audix i5 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

            hey everyone just wanted to share my experience with the I5 with you guys! I have had it a week and have tracked 5 songs with it now. my first impression was it doesn't look like it sounds good but Luis over in Hollywood told me its all he uses lately and now I see why! I listen back to my old drum tracks and my snare doesn't need to be eq on the top end anymore! nor do I need to boost for body! its the best mic ive use so far on snare! love on the rest of the kit too but it shines on snare and guitar!
