Nice for entry level micPublished on 11/17/11 at 13:56
This mic picks up all the nuance and character that I want while also providing amazing ambient noise rejection. I can record in any room in my house and the sound is nearly the same in each place. And while I wouldn't call this microphone a jack of all trades, that doesn't stop me from telling you that I love this microphone! You will too.
Sonically it sounds great, ideal for fattening whatever your trying to record and with good EQ'ing, even an amateur will hear the difference! It makes a great impression, any talent walks into your studio and sees this mic and it will say a lot about you as an engineer.
Now, onto the main course.

Now, onto the main course.
The Shure PG52 is a bass drum microphone. It is a dynamic microphone and has a cardioid pickup pattern. This is typical of kick drum microphones. While it is a kick drum microphone, however, it is curious that the frequency response only rises to 13,000 Hz. (It starts at 30 Hz.) I am only mentioning this because in the other kick drum microphones do have frequency responses that extend up relatively high compared to the Shure PG52. While it does include all of the nice things that a kick drum microphone should have, something weird seems to happen to the sound of the kick drum. I will get back to that soon.
The Shure PG52 indeed has all of the required things of a drum microphone, sturdy construction, compact size, simple adjustment mechanism, and most importantly, a very high SPL tolerance.
But the PG52 is strange, because compared to its competition, it sounds positively anemic on kick. It strangely finds its place mic'ing up floor toms, and, best of all, bass cabinets. This was odd, because a lot of bassists choose to use direct input rather than mic'ing up a cabinet like a guitar player would.
Understand what the PG52 is for. It may be just okay on a kick drum, but on a floor tom and a bass cabinet, you can get fantastic results with it.
good presencePublished on 05/18/12 at 03:43 (This content has been automatically translated from French)
very balanced, it helps to have a good mix between attack and the presence of low rounded by placing just coming bass drum, through the vent skin resonance (just enter the capsule)
I use it for a year prs studio and scne and'm Fully satisfied (even compared to the famous Beta 52). report quality price is excellent Obviously (less than 150 for a microphone like ... you take it !!!). I would do so this choice without hsiter why dpenser more?
