Your general opinion of this product.
One might think that the SM48 is no more than a cheap alternative to the 58 for those who can't afford the 'real thing.' However, it is a quite different microphone with its own strengths. The element in the 48 is actually the same as that used in the 55 'Elvis' mike and they do sound rather similar. It may be in the same ballpark as an SM58 but one can tell they are not the same. You may or may not like one better than the other -- I prefer the 48, myself, at least on my own voice.
