Comments about MXL A-5t Dynamic Tom Drum Microphone with Mounting Clip:
I first became aware of MXL's products when reading reviews for their Drum Cube microphone. I purchased a Drum Cube microphone because of the positive reviews and low price. When it arrived and I was able to play with it, I couldn't believe the sensitivity and the warmth that single microphone gave. My toms had punch and warmth. I soon purchased as second Drum Cube and began using the pair as overheads.
The purchase of the Drum Cube pair led to me realize that it was time to upgrade the Nady DM70 microphones I had been using on my toms since the beginning of my journey into recording my drums. The Nady microphones were satisfactory, or I thought that up until the point I purchased the AT-5s to replace the DM70s. Just like the Drum Cube, the AT-5s gave me the warmth and punch I had struggled to find with the DM70s, and that was without even messing with the EQ on my mixer. The tight cardioid pattern on the AT-5s really cuts a lot of bleed out from other drums and cymbals and allows for a clear attack from the toms. These microphones are solidly constructed and appear they will withstand a strike from drum stick. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because the included clips will not fit on my Gibraltar suspended tom mounts. These are fine microphones that I know I will get great use out of for years to come.
