    Don't be fooled by the low price.

    I usually don't give five stars to budget equipment. Being good "for the money" isn't the same as being good, period. I bought the R11 mics for general stage use when I don't want other people using my SM58s.

    When I opened the first box I was very impressed with the solid feel of the mic and smooth switch operation. Plugged in the sound is familiar and natural. It doesn't have a cheap hollowness or any noise at all.

    Working side by side with an SM58 or AKG D5 the R11 takes a very small eq adjustment to match either. And it does make the matches. The three R11s I bought are as consistent as any mics I have. They sound identical to each other from a whisper to a shout. They are also very predictable and easily managed for vocal dynamics. For "working the mic" I find them comparable to the SM58 and *this* much easier to manage than a D5.

    Not 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+

    Easy 3 Pack

    The pack was good right out of the box. Simple to use in the church setting and very responsive, especially for an older congregation.

    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.

    just what the doctor ordered

    our primary consideration was decent quality at a decent price. We use them for karaoke and our 'gang' is rough with them. time will tell in terms of durability but they sound just great for our needs.

    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!
