The Audix D4 is a dynamic microphone capable of use in both the recording studio and on the stage, although I have only used it in the studio. It is a small mic and is easy to place on drums, which is what I use it for. It is built well and is enclosed in a sturdy case to avoid harm to the microphone. While it is built well, it does have a kind of cheap look to it, so don't let the appearance fool you.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Audix D4 for about three years. While I was skeptical at first because of how cheap it is and because it does look kind of cheaply made, this is a great microphone for micing tom tom drums that are on the smaller end. This means drums that are 14 inches or less. They also will sound good on electric guitar, but they wouldn't be my first choice. While I would rather have a Sennheiser 421 on any tom tom drum, these are great because the the D4 is about a third of the price. This makes them a great option for the home studio owner looking for a few dynamic drum mics on the cheap. Even though I do like the D4, I would also probably rather have a Shure SM57 for any situation when it comes to recording and is only slightly more expensive than the D4. This being said, this is personal preference and I would encourage interested parties to shoot out the mics themselves if they can as it all depends on what you would like to use the mic for. This is the only Audix microphone I have used, so I don't know how it compares to any of the other Audix microphones. All in all, the Audix D4 is definitley worthy of a look when it comes to recording drums.
