After clipping this mic to the drum and seeing how easy it was to do that made me fall in love with the mic before I even heard how it was going to sound. it’s a very small tiny mic and can be clipped to pretty much any drum and record. The bad thing was is that the quality of the recording wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. No that it was horrible because I have heard a lot worse , but for the money and comeing from a company like Audix I expected so much more and I feel like they fell short in creating this mic. They could have spent some more time into actually make sure the mic sounded really good than they did making sure it was small and compact and easy to use.
The sound was not bad but it was not as good as I expected it to be and for the price it really wasn’t worth it, there are a lot more drum mics that are cheaper and sound similar to this one. It could have sounded bad because I was used to using a different drum mic that cost a lot more than this one so I expected to get decent quality just to mic up a snare drum at home but it didn’t satisfy me at all. I was actually glad I could return it which I didn’t within 30 days and went with a different mic. If you have money to invest into a drum mic don’t waste it on this one. Look for cheaper mics if you are going to get this one because they will sound very similar to this one. The Audi F90 doesn’t respond well to a drums dynamics in loudness very well.

Condenser microphone for making percussion.
The microphone is easily clipped on a snare or tom.
The cable length provided is sufficient to connect it to a case of stage (2-3m)
The length of the gooseneck is not adjustable. We can certainly find yourself at 5-6cm above the skin. What may well be perfect for capture, but can obstruct the batter.
- I give you my back to warm. I just use a DC on a date. He has not finished the scales, I provided a SM57.
- What I love: its installation. What I do not like: its sound.
- Well I tried to force standards (SM57, Beta57, Audix OM5, Sen 604th). But I wanted a small microphone easily installable, and does not obstruct the batter.
- The price is very good (75 € on eBay).
Less quality. On a snare drum is a disaster, obliged to seek to put an SM57. No attack, medium type cardboard. I will soon try it on a tom to tell me that I have not lost 75 €.
- Bah no experience, but I missed the test. I'm really disappointed that I am a big big fan of Audix.
