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.
Excerpt: I work in a television station that also has 7 radio stations. I use this mic in the TV studio on a set where anything goes, prewiews of plays, cooking, music, dance performances etc. This mic hangs from he grid to fill in the audio I can't get with shure 57 and 58s. I also use it in a small production studio interviewing band members. This mic just fills in where people have something to say but are off mice to the mics on stands.
