AWESOMENot only are the microphones great, but the customer service is the best ever of any company. Our rep, Matt Adams is truly #1. All CSR's should take lessons from this guy. So far he has made every transaction with Sweetwater...Sweet (pardon the pun). Everything we've purchased from Sweetwater has been top notch. Fast shipping, excellent condition, etc., etc. including these microphones. AAA+

Should cost more than they do!I was surprised and pleased with the performance of these microphones. I used Shure SM57s before and I feel these are very equal.
I don't know if they will last as long as a Shure microphone but for the price you can afford to buy extras. I have used these on vocals, guitar cabs and even bass cabs with natural sound reproduction. I have used them for both recording and live uses. The switch is great and I like the mostly silent shut off or turn on. The only complaint I have with this microphone is the shape of the body and the poor mic clip. The body of the mic is angled sharply making it hard to use universal mic clips. The mic clip provided squeezes so tightly you can't get it around the center of the mic. The mic overall is great and I have told others to buy them.

Quite a bang for your buck!If you're just starting out and you need a couple of reliable microphones, or are looking for a couple of back-up mics in case of a pinch, these are the ones for you. The value you recieve compared to the price you pay is nothing you'll regret. A word of advice: avoid singing anywhere except the center of the head as this causes a loss in higher vocal reception and leaves the bass to carry out on its own. Overall, not a bad mic for a band on a budget!
