This is my every day mic for clarinet. The mic is robust, with a very good sound.
The directivity and sensibility of the mic is perfect for clarinet. I put the mic at 8 inch above my right hand and it sounds great with only one mic. The low cut is necessary for this application.
The best tom mic around, in my opinion. I've bought a pair of these for guitar cabs and possibly toms. They're small, so they don't get in the way when used for toms and you definitely won't overload those capsules. For loud sources, this is as good as it gets. When I talked to a few pros I know, they assured me this is the mike you want for this situation. I like mine so much I just might buy two more for close miking more drums!
