$299 at Musician's Friend on the web. I needed a quality studio condenser mic for my project studio.

I like everything. With Shure, the performance is always there, but the capability for this mic to be able to take a vocal source one minute and then mic a guitar amp the next is truly amazing. It still maintains clarity as well.

The unit is also well built, solid and attractive.

There's not a thing I've found yet. I will let you know if I do, but I seriously doubt it at this point.

Built very solid like all of Shure's mics. This one might not be able to take the hard road abuse as the SM57 or SM58, but you could drop it a few times in your studio without worrying too much, I'm sure. The quality is impeccable.

For around $300 you can now afford a great quality studio condenser microphone from a reputable company. What more could you ask?
