The Shure PG81 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone features a flat frequency response, is powered with external phantom or a AA battery and is well suited for capturing vocals, instruments and amplifier cabinets in recording or sound reinforcement applications. Its cardioid polar pattern adequately rejects off-axis signal that may cause noise or feedback. The microphone features an On/Off switch and includes a microphone clip, 5/8" to 3/8" adapter and a storage case.

      Comments about Shure PG81 Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone:

      We picked up one of these to test for church for miking the occasional acoustic instrument like violin or mandolin. When we tested it against some other mics (AKG C 1000 and Shure SM81 mainly), we found it wasn't nearly as sensitive so the gain had to be cranked and that resulted in more noise. It would probably work fine for louder sources, though, and the build quality felt solid.
