      Comments about Nady DM-80 Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone:

      I bought the DM80 to mike my cajons and it works great.Does an excellent job bringing out the bass. I also have a DM 70, which is also an excellent mike. My only complaint is the padding in the case is not formed to hold the DM80, it is designed to hold the smaller DM70.Would highly recommend this mike.

      Percussion, microphone

      By Adam concept

      Comments about Nady DM-80 Dynamic Kick Drum Microphone:

      If you're going to sell a product such as the dynamic kick drum microphone you should definitely include links after the purchase. For the different attachments/accessories. Because I wasn't aware at first how the mircophone would be attached to the drum.. I didn't find out until I got it that the attachments cost extra! So like maybe more explanations! I wouldn't have minded paying more, i would've gotten the attachment (either the clip or the mic stand) at the same time I bought the mircophone, if I knew I needed it!

      Great price for a decent mic...bad for kick drum, but good for floor tom or other low-pitched instruments. Built ruggedly.
