The biggest of the mics is the F6, with 40Hz-16kHz frequency response especially tuned for kick drums.

The F2 mics for the toms have a frequency response of 55Hz-15kHz, while the F5 snare mic's frequency response is at 55Hz-15kHz.

There are some retailers that market the FP5 as a versatile mic kit, with some even recommending the Audix F6 mic for use with guitar cabinets.

All these mics are packed in an aluminum case along with four drum clips and one mic clip.

Most users commend the Audix FP5 set for its great live sound, while others recommend it for its versatility and value for money. There are also reports of it working well with other instruments like djembe and bongos, some even use it for miking guitar amps.


There are a few users who complain about the size of the drum clips, wishing that they were more discrete.


If you're looking for a drum mic package that can be backup mics for other instruments, then check out the Audix FP5.

Although the FP5 is a solid option, we are currently recommending the much more highly rated Shure PGADRUMKIT5 instead.
