  • Why use a '58?

    As reviewed by Bretman on 4/18/2007

    I bought one of these over a year ago to use for jam sessions instead of my Shure, and ended up buying 2 more! They're hotter than a '58, seem to have a tighter pickup pattern (less feedback issues), and sound very similar. They also come in a very nice hardshell plastic case with foam lining. I can now mic up my whole band for less than the price of 1 SM58, (which are great btw). So this is a no-brainer...just get 1, or 2 or 3!

  • Amazing quality. Better than any Shure mic.

    As reviewed by C.a on 7/13/2009

    Ok so I've been in a Metalcore/Death Metal band for a year now. And I've bought the shure mic's and they where good. But eventually came the day they broke. I spent tooo much money on just one of those, I didnt want to constantly buy a shure mic that I knew i'd eventually break. So came the day I went on guitar center and looked for a mic that had 5 star rating but not as expensive. I then found this. I was really not sure if I should buy this at first or if it was really good like Shure, but I said "hell why not". As I eagerly waited for it, Finally the day came that the package recieved to my house. Right when i opened it, I plugged it into my Amp and with the exact same settings i left my amp on when I had my shure, It came out louder, better, and had a very nice echo just like shure. I right away thought "why the hell wouold everyone buy a shure? This is WAYYYYY better than any other mic i've ever had" Now not only was it very good for screaming but when my guitarist did his normal singing on it, it sounded beautiful than ever. From the effects it makes live and practice, this thing is really good for recording, your recording would be the exact same like which would be a 5*. I recomend this to EVERYONE to buy instead of shure mics. This makes shure look like nothing.

  • Great Mic

    As reviewed by Don on 10/7/2009

    I have a small DJ side business and was using cheap mics with terrible results. I was debating whether to get an expensive Sure or stick with the cheaper mics. This mic is awesome; it has so much clarity and little to no distortion and has been an asset to my DJ business. One other note; I bought this online and the first one that arrived did not work, I called the customer service number and was treated extremely well and a replacement was sent out immediately as I told the CS advocate that I had a gig in four days, Guitar Center gets all of my business now.
