For Gear Heads:
Designed, assembled and tested by Audix in the USA, the Audix i5 is a dynamic instrument microphone used for stage, studio and broadcast applications. The i5 is able to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB without distortion and can be used to mic a wide variety of musical instruments, guitar and bass cabinets, vocals and speech. The Audix i5 is characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern for isolation and feedback control and is equipped with a VLM™ (Very Low Mass) diaphragm for natural, accurate sound reproduction. The Audix i5 is sturdy, compact and easy to position. With a wide frequency response of 50 Hz - 16 kHz, the i5 provides clear, accurate, natural sound reproduction without having to rely on EQ. Roadworthy construction includes a precision cast zinc alloy body, steel grill, black e-coat finish, laser etched model and serial number, Switchcraft® XLR connector and includes a heavy duty nylon mic clip.
The Audix I5 is perfect dynamic microphone for a variety studio and live applications. We like the I5 on snare drums and guitars cabinets. Most engineers like me are a fan of the classic Shure SM57 but the I5 brings a new flavor to snare and electric guitar recordings.
