Unbelievable compared to others at this price!
by Bruce Boatner from Boise, IDI was going to buy a Shure SM58 and just happened to ask my sales engineer AJ Peterson if there was anything else in the $100 price range that was possibly better. I've used SM58's for years, and wha... read more [+]t a difference! Only thing is you need phantom power and I wouldn't use it on-stage (although you could in a pinch). It's got a switch for a rumble filter and a 20 dB pad for micing amps, drums, etc. Actually, I used the pad to mic a tambourine because it was peaking all over the place. Great product! And it looks expensive! close [-]

This mic gets used for a lot of things including drums but I like it most for getting those sweet female vocal sounds live or recording. close [-]
