    Shure MX418 reviews

    MX418SEC - 18" Cardioid Gooseneck Microphone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic with some quirks This microphone is used on the pulpit in a mid-sized church. It is very sensitive and has excellent sound. It has a few downsides. 1) The rubber isolation sleeve pushed out while inserting the mic and it's difficult to get back into position properly (it's still not right) 2) The gain out of the preamp is set very high. The instructions say that the gain is user selectable but don't count on it. To do it you need to desolder tiny surface mount resistors on a tiny circuit board, find some new resistors with different values (not included), and solder them on. NOT. Also, you'll need a .050 hex wrench to get at the circuit board. I'm not sure who even has one. If you can't live with very high gain, skip this microphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! Sounds great, easy to install. Used on church ambo for proclaiming the Word. Replaced a Peavey(made in China)that had started to hum because of cable breakdown inside the gooseneck.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price! Our church recently purchased this mic and it is great. We use it as our pulpit mic and it is extremely clear. Also, it has a great range to pick up sound. If you stand to the side of the mic it will pick your voice. Great deal for the money. It was more than I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gooseneck Mic Outstanding performance with very good clean vocal reproduction. Excellent for an Awards show podium. Modular in design. Wish they had a case built for four of these. We had to buy an arrow case to hold the mics and modular parts.
