"Solid and dependable mics"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Good mic but not the best, Road tested, solid mic, clean good quality sound.
Sure SM58 and SM57 have been the industry standard for a long time. You realy cant go wrong with these mic for live sound. Do I recomend these mics for the studio, no, but for live sound they are road worthy, tested and worth the money. If your trying to save money on a sound system, mics are NOT the place to do it. SM58's and 57's are good mics for vocal and instraments of 70Hz or higher (No piano's, kick drums, floor toms Tampini's etc...). I have many mics in my arsenal from Seinhieser, CAD, AKG,and EV,and I always seem to use my Sure's every show. If your looking for a good all around mic for live performance. You can't go wrong here.
Yes it is always nice to have the mic clips and the bonus of new mic cables and case. If you priced everything out individualy you would be paying anywere from $850 to $1000 for this package.
Ease of Use
Fairly simple to use with any PA and a good ear. Nothing complex just plug them in and they perform.
Road testes for decades. Beat up the screen, buy replacements, good as new. There just plain hardcore tanks
As I said, Sure SM58's and 57's are the industry standard. There are better mics out there, (Seinheiser ES 835's) but you will pay more for them.
I give them a because, I don't know about there support, I've owned Sure mics and wireless units for years and never needed support.
The Wow Factor
Compare to a flashy drummer or a solid drummer? There not sexy, but solid and dependable, and on stage dependable is better than flashy and flighty any time.
Active Musician & Sound tech
What ever the paying public wants to hear.
