Affordable and Effective: Shure PG58-XLRI needed a an affordable and effective replacement mike to use during live music performances in roller rinks. The Shure PG58-XLR was the perfect choice for my announcements of songs and tempos for skating. I'm very pleased with the quiet response of the On/Off switch not causing loud pops on the rinks' speaker systems. This was a frequent and annoying problem with other mikes. It gets the job done and doesn't break the bank! Another satisfied Shure customer.

Great mic for beginners!This mic is built to withstand just about any abuse you will encounter! Sounds pretty good, but I'd recommend EQing this mic. Sounds clear above my band, but it does pick up a bit of feedback if it's in a small room with the volume turned way up. I'd recommend this mic for those who are looking for a good mic at a very low amount.

Review for Shure PG58 Microphone & ServiceI purchased two Shure PG-58 microphones to be used in an auditorium. The microphones are good quality and inexpensive and a good choice for how they will be used. Good product!
The service from Sweetwater has been nothing short of fantastic! Matt M. has been wonderful to work with on every order that I've made.

Good but not great micOverall this mic is exactly what you would expect for it's price point. If you are used to really good condenser mic's (or even some of the mid range ones these days) then you are not going to be very happy. But if you are looking for a solid CHEAP mic that can take some abuse and still sound great, this is a fine mic. We have several at our church replacing some older microphones and they sound great!
I would never suggest this mic for recording, dynamic mics just don't compare to condensers for recording quality, but for live sound, this mic is adequate.
@ the guy who complained about it being muddy, I would check your EQ's and also check your speakers to make sure the tweeters aren't blown (if both of those are good, a hearing test is in order!) This dynamic mic does not have the "crispness" of a condenser, but it is a solid clean mic.
PRO: Great quality for the $
CON: If you've got the bucks spring for a real SM58 (or a beta58). If you are recording, go buy a decent condeser mic.

Pleasantly Surprised!I bought one of these as my redundant podium mic at church. i really didn't expect much out of it, but on the Sunday that my wireless headset decided to abandon me in the middle of my sermon when I took the pg58 off the holder and began speaking through it my eyes popped. I bought it because it was a Shure mic and because it was priced well below the MSR price. I'll be picking up 7 more of these for my church until I can afford 8 SMs. LOL

save your moneyHonestly, your getting what you pay for. Spend an extra forty and buy a Sennheiser e835 or if your a Shure fan like many people are, go buy the SM58. I have this and it is muddy beyond belief. You have eq this thing like crazy. What a hassle! I'd recommend the Sennheiser e935 if you have the money. I've heard Senneiser mics on vocals, drums, and other things and I prefer them over Shure.
