    Shure PGA-181 reviews

    PGA181 Side-Address Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Mic, natural sound. This is a very affordable mic, its built like a tank and sounds very natural. I own three of them. its the sm57 of condenser mics, its good for just about anything except really low frequency instruments, and I dont find it flattering with voices, but I could live with it. Its great for guitar cabs, it gives you a bit more flexibility and clarity than an sm57, but without the hype you tend to get with condenser mics. Dont loose the mic clip, its quite different from the mic clips. I would recommend this mic to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mic! These mics are a fantastic value for the price! I've used them for acoustic guitar, piano, drums, and numerous percussion instruments and have had great success!
