Overall Rating
Great cost effective mic for drums
Your general opinion of this product.
I give this an easy 4 stars. It's a very good cost effective choice for use on drums. I was looking for a small bodied snare drum mic in the Shure SM line to go with the SM57's for the other upper drums/toms BUT the only option there was a Beta 56 which was a bit too pricey for me. SO I decided on the PG 56 which is great for attaching in tight places (I mic the snare from the bottom to get the "snap" sound) and I'm happy I did!
