Shure MX418/S

Purchased two Shure MX418/S mics for out church (Ambo and Cantor applications), and this mic is wonderful! I replaced two old Shure dynamic mics, which had been susceptible to "behind the mic" pick-up allowing potential feedback, with these Shure MX418/S's and their Supercardioid pattern performed beautifully! Also, virtually soundless movement of this mic to position to various lectors was a perfect fit!

The Gooseneck that could

This was installed in a small church envioriment. Before installation a wireless mike was passed back and forth between Song leader and Pastor. After this microphone was installed the service flows so much better. The Shure Mx418/s is used exclusively until the Pastor starts his sermon and then the wireless mic is used. Of course helping the new Shure mic was also a new Mackie mixer which is fantastic.

No screeching preaching any more

The size and color make this mic almost invisible, you would hardly know it was there except for the amazing way it produces sound. This is quite the mic for the money.

A very good mic for the job

I purchased this mic for use at a pulpit in a church to simplify our setup. Our worship pastor would be the one who would experience the most change. The first time we used it in a service, his eyes lit up and he remarked, "I haven't heard my voice that clearly in a long time." It was an excellent purchase.
