The Shure SM27 is a well rounded mic that is a condenser mic that doesn’t cost a lot of money and will provide you with a pretty good sound. It came out years ago for around 400 or maybe a little more than that. But now can be purchased brand new for less than 300 dollars. I am not sure why its such a difference in price but im all for it.


OVERALL OPINION

Some of the key features of the SM 27 are that it can react very quick and use its mesh layers to reduce wind and popping noises on your “P” words. This mic is not really made for instruments but I have used it on some before and it seemed to work great. I have actually even seen It in a local rock station being used to interview people such as bands that are local or local business owners for radio ads and it works great. Some bad news about it though is that I have heard that its not very heavy duty and if it gets dropped the wrong way it can really mess the mic up and not make it work properly again. Plus a few people told me there mic chord gets shorted out from time to time and they have to keep replacing it. It could be do to something with the hook up on the mic or just that they kept getting cheap chords.

Overall, the mic seems worth it to me, I havent had a bad experience with it. I kept it at home and didn’t take it anywhere with the fear of something happening to it. But for use at home or in a bigger studio it will work for you. Plus it’s a Shure, so you know you are getting good quality. Buy it and try it out.
