Excerpt: I use this mic mainly for run and gun journalism for local news and sports coverage. I use it for on and off camera interviews in a myriad of locations and weather conditions. The mic takes everything I can throw at it and gives me great audio. For the price, one of the best tools I own.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: This mic works great. voices are clear - no problem at all. This package includes the mic, a cable and a Shure-specific clip for your mic stand, so everything to get you going. This is the xlr-1/4 inch jack plug, although you can get an xlr-xlr version. The only downside is that the switch on the mic... it is really, really easy to turn the mic off by accident; when it's kids using it they don't know what's happening. Some tape would hold it in place, but spoil the feel.
Summary: I bought 2 of this SHURE PG48, they both sound pretty good, of course you will have to adjust sound from your mixer, plus a good system will always help the mics. The 48 sound clear, warm and loud.Its built solidly, has On & off buttton, removeable screen top for cleaning. But my SHURE PG58 sounds even better, if you just need PG48 for home karaoke or a small gathering, it works just fine.
