Excellent guitar cab mic
Review by lord preset
I am one of those oddballs who has never liked the SM57 on guitar. It seems to suck the life out of my tone. The I5 is has a more hifi sound that better captured both the bottom end and the sparkle of the guitar. Very solidly built. (Posted on 9/11/11)
Great sound-great price
Review by Jared
This mic has become a strong competitor of the industry standard Shure SM57. In my experience, It has been excellent on guitar cabs, and toms. It seems to have a more mid-heavy and bassy sound than the SM57, which is better for some applications and settings. Even if you already have an SM57, get one of these too! (Posted on 2/7/11)
Great Mic!
Review by Toy Robot
This is a great mic, and indeed a workhorse for guitar cabs, percussive instruments and certain other applications... but be weary of using this mic on vocals.

In my personal experience, it simply cannot handle the plosives produced by close micing of a singer.

For dedicated top-notch vocal mics, look to the OM(X) line of vocal mics from Audix. (Posted on 11/17/10)
