From Our Research Team:
The Ideal Mic For That Big Percussion Sound!For bringing out the real, dynamic sound of your drum toms and congas, nothing beats (ha, ha) the D2! The D2 accurately reproduces the warmth and punch you listen for from percussion, leaving out the muddy, indistinct "boom" that can mar recording. The D2's natural warmth also makes it a great mic for saxophones and other woodwinds requiring a true, sensitive, yet big, reproduction.

One Trick Pony?
by Pags from New YorkFirst things first, this is not a utility mic like a 57 or 421 or something like that. This mic has one job and it does that job well. Can you use it on things other than toms, sure you can, will it... read more [+] perform well.... probably not. The mic is built to handle somewhat higher SPL's and has a tailored response to work with rack toms (doesn't do bad on a floor tom, but wouldn't be a go to mic for that application, audix makes a mic for that purpose as well). Another plus for this mic is it's size. its compact enough that you can easily fit it where it needs to go without some large body sticking up and then an xlr connection housing sticking up even further. (anyone that's mic'd a tom with a 57 or 421 knows what this means) Especially useful for drummers that keep their cymbals low over the toms. close [-]

This mic makes me take off instead of adding to much EQ which can possibly spoil a mix. close [-]
