I use it to record and mic my studio bass amp. It sounds great!
Great value. You can spend 3x more money on another kick mic and get only a slightly better sound. It needs a little bit of EQ here and there, and compression sure helps, but it is a great mic for only a little money. I would buy another, and I don't see the point in paying for a Shure when you can just tweak this one a little with EQ and get a similar sound. It seems sturdy, but I haven't gotten to put it up to much abuse yet....
I bought this mic on a cheap budget for the kick drum on my band's drumset, and I must say, I am impressed. Comparable to AKG's D112, it is a great value. There is a nice resonant thump and a prominent click for the batter. Nice that it screws on a boom stand thread for easy micing as well... buy a compressor for the thing and it'll easily sound like a 300 dollar kick mic...
Despite the need to bost the low frequencies more than some more expensive mics, I find this mic easy to mix for a brutal gut thumping bass drum. I don't port my resonant head and I mic the resonant side for maximum 'boom' and this mic captures it well along with a generous amount of punch.It performs excelently in both live and studio applications.
I bought a "cheap" kick drum mic for punk and rock shows because I didn't want to expose my shure mic to the elements of live shows! I was simply IMPRESSED! I didn't even have to EQ it very much an still got that "click" I was looking for. I'm gonna buy another one for back-up.
