Love this product

  • Excerpt: We were in a live sound situation where we have a tremendous amount of outside RF interference. i.e. 2 TV stations, a 50K watt radio station, multiple cell towers, plus 450-470 towers. This unit stopped all the problems we were having.

Clear pick-up, but softer case?

  • Excerpt: Having previously used the PGX24/PG58, I was happy to upgrade to these. They have a good clean pick up and a good range. However, the case went to a downgrade and is a soft case, the foam also doesn't seem good quality. With an upgrade of equipment I had hoped the protection for it would be equal or better, not lower. So overall, equipment is fine, but the case that came with it, not an improvement.

  • Summary: Good day! Excellent microphone. But you need to spend time to get used to him sing. Still condenser MIC. Competent construction and processing almost doesn't start. I recommend this microphone for live work and for home Studio.

The vocal mic that lives

privett1967, Ebay
10 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of the SM86's to use at my church to replace a couple of the Sure prologue mics that belonged to the church. It blew me away of how much clearer vocals sounded on these mics. However, one night I was working an after hours event as a janitor at the University of South Carolina Sumter campus in Sumter SC. and knew they were going to have live musical groups that night. I had just purchased these microphones and was itching to try out there condensor ability.

Better than most, still cheap, but good.

  • Excerpt: There are some obvious cheapnesses [sic] to the product like the overabundance of plastic and the fact that it won't rack-mount. I don't care about either because I use it for public speaking and it works great. The WL93 lav mic that comes with it is nice and cheap so I don't have to be super careful with it. I alternatively use it with an earset mic (Point-Source Audio CO-6).
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight

This is a fantastic sounding microphone.

pghenske, Ebay

  • Summary: This is a fantastic sounding microphone. Well worth the extra cost over SM/Beta58. I has a lovely smooth bass proximity effect and great clear sound. I always thought these mics were ideal for female vocals, but they also add a richness to the male voice that needs to be heard to be appreciated. But wait till I get my 2nd one before you rush to outbid me on the the other one's listed.
