    Comments about Audix i5 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

    The Audix i5 has recently become my preference over the SM57 for electric guitar amps. It has a very similar frequency response but I feel it has a slight edge in the higher frequencies that I really like. The i5 is a very durable microphone with no moving parts that can make noise, and I also love it on the underside of snare drums! Definitely a useful microphone to have in your arsenal!

      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.
