Excerpt: B&H is the go to website for quick and efficient purchases of production supplies. They had the product I was looking for and also supplied me with product information that added in my purchase choice. The microphone arrived on time and worked as advertised. Thanks B&H!
Excerpt: We were all blown away by the pickup responsiveness of these mics. They had their first run used as hanging stage mics for our performance of Godspell last week. The inline preamps allow for some tweaking to get the right amount of gain. The pick up pattern was ideal - you'll have to decide for yourself cardiod vs. super cardiod. Our stage is small and we wanted to tighter pattern to limit monitor feedback.Only drawback was the mic stand adapter.
Excerpt: We have two hanging AT mics for our choir, but they just weren't picking up enough. We wanted to put one in the center to pick up additional sound, but the projector and screen are right in the middle, so we got one of these and put it on a stand to augment the two hanging ones. The stand adapter isn't quite what I expected, but it does the job. The only other complaint I have is that the cord is too long for what I need.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Our church wanted to add a mike for the choir and piano, and asked me to do it. I searched the Shure site, found this mike and bought it from B&H. I came up with a "contraption" to hang it from the celing in the right spot. It works great - does the job prefectly. People at church think I am a genius - not so, I just have to be smart enough to go to Shure and B&H.
Excerpt: I bought these to replace two olders ones (12+ years - one starting to give me a problem). I set them up and turned on the system and immediately notice AM radio coming through my system. Plugged the old ones in and no problem. Called Shure customer support and they were VERY helpful. Answered on the first ring with a live person that was able to help me. They shipped out two attunuators that corrected the problem for free. Great Shure customer service!
Summary: This microphone excels in the environment it was intended for--namely vocals in a controlled studio. If placed properly, it can eliminate the need to run individual lavs to each person, minimizing set up time. We plan to buy additional units and have several hanging for maximum effectiveness.
