I typically use Beta 57's on snare, but the one time I used an i5 I thought it sounded good, and I'd definitely use one again if I had the opportunity.  I'll probably pick one up someday, but it just hasn't been a priority yet.

I have a D1, and I personally feel that it's the worst sounding mic I own.  On anything.  I haven't used it in years because I've never, ever been happy with the way it sounds.  I wouldn't recommend it to anyone for any application, but that's just my take on things.  I love my D2's and D4's on toms though, so I'm definitely an Audix fan, it's just that D1 that I absolutely hate...

I5: Too big and heavy.  D series, ADX20 series, M12 series, E604/904.

Lately it's been an i5 or ATM650. Usually the ATM650 on snare, ADX20 on toms, D6 in da kick.

That's the first time I've ever heard negative criticism of the D1. What is it you don't like about it? I've never had issues getting snare body or crack out of one unless the snare drum itself was in poor shape.

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.

E 604, 57, I5  in that order.  I've tried the i5 about 5 times, not liking it, at least not on the 2 bands I do sound for regularly. Its the thinest sounding of the 3.  I'll use a pg56 over the i5.
The e 604 is a great little mic for a $100
