This is really more of a live, workhorse mic for beginners. It's sort of like an SM58 Junior, with a switch. This is a dynamic mic with an attached pop screen, so it's best suited for live vocals. Not recommended for recording or critical applications, since the sound quality is not impressive.


This was actually my first microphone - I've had it for about 6 years. It still works, and it's been dropped many times, so there's something to be said for durability. As my ears have matured, this mic sounds rather dull to me now. Definitely wouldn't want to use it for recording. I actually use it for a talkback mic in my studio, where sound quality isnt that important - just intelligibility, which it handles fine. It also has an on/off switch on it, which is handy. I've used a great deal of mics - the closest relative to this would of course be the SM58, which is a better sounding PG58, except the SM does not have the switch. It's very cheap, so if you just need a mic to get the job done and not sound breathtaking, it's a great value. Since I use it for a talkback mic, it works great for that, and I'd get it again.
