I've been playing in "Tribute" bands for 10 years. Been all over the world playing music. Even played for Royalty. Drums & Percussion are my 1st love. But, I also play bass and Guitar. I taught drums lessons for 5-6 years at a local muusic store.

I bought this Mic for $120.00 (including taxes) from Long & McQuade in Langley, BC Canada.

It's lightweight, sounds pretty good, & adjustable. I really like the fact it comes with a belt clip 'cause the weight of a connected XLR plug could easily pull the headset off your head if you move too quickly.

It won't sound like a Shure 58. It is great for back up vocals or talking engagements/gigs. But since the mic is small and just off to the side of your mouth it won't have full presence. People wearing glasses will have a problem wearing both at the same time. 'Since they occupy the same space around the ears.

The metal head brace is black and is wrapped in a neoprene band, originally ment for glasses/sunglasses. It can fit comfortably, but you gotta to some adjusting

I like it. It doesn't pick up heavey breathing, even through the mouth. And it sounds pretty good. It's an excellent mic for a drummer or anyone who needs their space infront of them. The price is not too bad either.
