This mic is awesome. We used it for my wife's vocal students. Most of them are pretty good. The other mics we had were a discontinued Shure system with the 58 cartridge and a PGX with the 58 cartridge. Most of her students are girls and the difference was night and day. This mc has so much clarity and signal strength. Have used a hard wired 87a at my music venue and this is just as good sounding. My wife uses the Shure UR2 system with the KSM9 cartridge (best of the best) but enjoyed using this nearly as much. We will be getting another SLX mic with the beta 58 cartridge which I also generally with male vocals. You won't regret this purchase regardless of your vocals, but I like it the best for females and high tenors.
