As a drummer I'm always looking ways to improve my sound, In this case I started researching the Shure PGA98D, Most of the comparisons I was able to find were only on the Shure SM57 and the Sennhiser E609. Which was helpful but not exactly what I was looking for regarding a Tom Microphone. So I decided after looking at least 8 or 9 videos I came to a conclusion the PGA98D was probably the best match because of the Specifications,Warranty, and Design not to mention the price point. One of the biggest features of this microphone is that you have a built in Preamp which really helps to replicate and deliver the true tone of the drum, Highs and Lows. I'm truly Impressed with the performance, In my case I using 98D of Tom sizes 8" thru 18" and found this Mic in comparison to more expensive different manufacture's models. I'm very grateful to the great staff zZounds and feel I can highly recommend the Shure PG98D for The Biggest Bang for the Buck
