It makes a great snare mic. Its a little beefier and it has a little more crack right off the bat compared to a 57.

+1. Have four of them that I use all of the time on a number of instruments. Does an excellent job on snare drums.

Much more durable than the plastic head on the 57!

Hey Friends,

I was wondering how may of you use the Audix I5 for snare and are you happy with it.

I usually use a Shure 57 or an Audix D1 but I want to try something elso out on snare without breaking the bank and also something that can take a hit and not break into a million pieces.

Thanks again and hope your festival  season is busy.

I used a 57 for a long time, tried the D1 for a little, it was fine. I went back to the 57 mainly because of the clip on the D1. I decided to buy a couple i5s about 2 months ago, I like it better. Its my snare mic of choice between the 3. It's a little shorter than the 57 and better when using "the claw" mount, very will built and I just like the sound more.

Audix i5 or Sennheiser e905 (use a right angle XLRf plug) on top and a Audix D3 on bottom. Haven't used a 57 on snare in a l-o-n-g time... .

+1 on the e905.  Great on snare, nice and compact.  Articulate and full snare sound.  Never cared for all the work a 57 takes to sound good on snare.  With the e905 I place it properly and on any decent snare it's exactly what the snare sounds like.

I do love the Audix drum clips though unless you've got a drummer with hoop mounted/isolated toms.

I usually have an i5 on the top and a condenser (Rode NT5 / Earthworks SRO / Sennheiser e614) on the bottom.  Works great for me.

Stick with the D1. It's easiest to deploy and sounds just fine.

I had an I5 and would not invest in another.

The i5 is a killer Tom Petty (sounding) vocal mic.
Another old Soundguy in here turned me on to the Heil minimic for snare, and I haven't had a need to change

Thats how I feel, thin sounding to me, something just is not right with it.
