Was video-gigging a wine tasting festival. WOW, did it ever get loud. SOUND WAS PERFECT! Lav's, Shotguns picked up to much ambient. Know how loud it was? Ambient sound levels went through my headphones AND my earplugs. Good thing these guys worked.

I purchased this for my daughter recently to use with an audio interface. The quality of the microphone is on par with the SM58 I am used to, with a great balance in the hand and a nice audio response. This is a rugged piece of equipment with a great pedigree.

Bought this mic for denon prime for cause it's a headache to keep reaching over the entire board to turn the mic on and off. Works perfectly. Good sound and heavy duty. Worth the buy.

Very comparable to the SM58 to my ears, for half the price. I'm a fan.
