Excerpt: There are plenty of other hand held microphones for less money. This one is worth every penny. Less feedback, more durability and a much better vocal sound. the metal body is tough, the windscreen is tough. There is a very good reason why this particular mic has been used as-is, unchanged for years. Do yourself a favor and get this mic. I use them with Lectrosonics plug-on transmitters for a fantastic fly pack that I know will work as advertised.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Summary: I bought the PGXD Beta 58A to add to our system of PGXD wireless units we already use. We use a headset on the drummer and the instrument attachment on the guitar. I stayed with all the same units in case there was ever a problem at a show I could reconfigure and plug in the guitar and use the other receiver for the headset I an emergency. After 2 years with no problems I added the Beta 58A which has worked out great.
Summary: Very nice, wireless product for the price. Seems to be reasonably built. I am getting excellent sound out of this in using it for a Christian Praise Band. The only problem is the piece that fits over the Headset Microphone will not stay on. So I just don't use it. Shure you fix this problem.
Pros: This mic is an awesome vocal mic especially when paired with the Monster Pro cable's. NO clicks, pop's or distortion from the mic. You can have it pointing right at the speakers and no feedback. Love this mic. Ya won't find a better one for the price, and ya definitely won't be disappointed. I love Shore microphones to me they are the best. Oh and I have had this knocked over many times and it works like new still the grill didn't even dent.
Cons: Not a condenser mic. I will have the best handheld Shure condenser mic one day!
Summary: It is a great microphone just plain and simple. I've used my friends for a long time and I finally thought it was time I got my own. If you take good care of this mic, it will take care of you.
