Excellent microphone for the price. There is a place in town where I practice music and there are SM 58s there as well. So I decided to test out the PG58 and an SM 58 and they sound identical. The only difference is the SM 58 is made like a tank, but if you take care of the PG 58 you'll be fine. The PG 58 isn't fragile but it won't be able to withstand throwing it across the room and stuff like the SM58 can. You can literally scream into this mic and if you have your settings right you still will not have an awful clipping sound. Really great mic for live and recording settings. I recommend it.
