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!
