I don't really think so.
The Audix i-5 can handle 140 db, double what that one can.
How much is this mic?
I looked up those exact specs, is it an NJD mic?

If you're looking for cheap mics at a good price, check out the Nady mics.
They also have a 7 piece mic package, but they are a lot better quality.
They can handle 145 db SPL instead of 76.
They are $169 and they come with a case:

Check them out, they're a much better deal.

Agreed, you will overload this mike quickly. Also check out Craigslist. Everyone is trying to unload audio gear these days.

76 is the sensitivity on these mics, non max spl. 76 db is like a conversation.
