        Comments about MXL A-55 Kicker Dynamic Drum Microphone:

        This mic is an incredible bang for your buck! I bought it as an upgrade to the small dynamic mic I had been using on my kick drum and it sounds awesome. It really gives a great beefy tone and it was pretty much idiot proof to achieve. I put it just inside the hole on my reso head pointed just off the beater and there ya go, great kick sound. No EQ or anything, I just set it and forget it. For the small amount of money you're paying just buy it..you wont regret it!!

          So my band went from kinda a cheap cad kick mic to this beastly thing! Hands down best mic I've heard in its price range perfect for a live kick mic on a budget! this thing weighs a lot too! good solid construction and comes with a pretty nice pouch to carry it in. i would definitely recommend this thing to anyone looking to save a couple bucks!

                Used for recording drums and bass. Great sound quality and very durable. Pick it up in your hand and you know by its' weight that this is not a cheapy mic. MXL is where it's at for musicians on a budget!!!

                  This is a good mic. I use it with the MXL 603s mics. It's the only kick drum mic i'ved used but it brings out the bass tones in my 24" kick. I tweaked the EQ on my mixer for optimal sound and it sounds great. I recommend this.
