  • Sounds like it has more air than an oxygen tank

    As reviewed by chase labauve on 9/10/2012

    I am faithful to the shure mic brand but my, these mics have an absolutely dead response to them, the only thing they are good far would be live performances with acoustic instruments but for recording, these things are a nightmare. I am returning these tomorrow and buying some rode nt5's for drum overheads and hopefully they turn this nightmare into a dream.

  • Great Little Mic

    As reviewed by Mike on 6/6/2010

    We use this mic in a couple of different places. We've used them on micing amps, choir mics and also around the auditorium for crowd mics. It's got great response and we don't get a lot of feedback from it. It's a great little mic for the price!
