Ease of Use
Excellent Microphone--nearly as good as the SM58 BETA I have been using for 7 years
Your general opinion of this product.
When I needed microphones for my expanding band, my first instinct was to buy SHURE. I couldn't afford to get the ones I wanted, the SM58 BETA, so I found these SM48 mics which were more within my budget. Honestly, I was not expecting much from a fifty dollars microphone. The real plus was the free cable and stand that came with it. I purchased three and figure that, since they are made by SHURE, they can't suck at least! When they arrived I immediately set them up and tried them out and was pleasantly surprised with the sound they produced, compared side-by side with the SM58 BETA I have been in love with for seven years. I am very pleased with the quality, and the sound quality they produce. And I am REALLY pleased to have the bonus stands and cables! Nice work, AMS!! THANKS!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very well made. Nice heft. Same as the SM58 BETA.
