good stage mic

Shure PG81Published on 06/28/12 at 15:13
This mic is a great stage mic condenser small diaphragm mic that should be used in live situations. It doesn’t have to be used in live situations but if you want to get the best out of it you should use it as a stage mic. Shure has several mics that are similar to this one in many aspects and im not sure why they have made so many mics that are so similar. The normal price for this mic is 160.00 which is not bad for a great stage and live mic. You may find it used somewhere but you wont see much of a price drop if you do. 160 dollars is worth the price paid for this mic because it puts out a great quality and it is very durable and it’s a Shure mic.

Shure makes great quality products not just mics and if you every have something go wrong you can always call them and they will work out a solution with you.


OVERALL OPINION

The mic should be used in live situations on acoustic instruments. The cardioid polar pattern picks up all of the sound that it will out put from directly in front of the mic making it difficult to record unwanted sounds coming from other instruments or external things that may be going on. Jut think about if you where onstage and the mic was picking up stuff from the sides and other members on stage. The overeall output would be horrible. That is why this mic is design to pick up sound directly in front of it.

Great mic at a great price, but like I said Shure has made so many different versions of this mic im not sure why they have done that but they did. So you would probably need to try a few out before you found the one you wanted.

The Shure PG 81 is a small diaphragm condenser microphone suitable for use both in the recording and on the stage. Unlike most condenser microphones, it is designed for use on the stage and will excel in this situation over the studio. It has a cardioid polar pattern pick up and a standard XLR output. It is designed mostly for use in the live setting, as it has a battery to power it that it comes with if you don't have phantom power at a show. Its sturdy design and on/off switch also make it a great candidate to use on the stage.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Shure PG 81 both on the stage and in the studio for the last two or three years. I have found that it is best suited for picking up acoustic instruments during a live show. I have also used it in the studio a few times, but find that it doesn't pick up as much detail as I would like for a studio mic. For this reason, I would really only recommend the PG 81 for those looking for a condenser microphone to use for live sets. It is a great option for acoustic guitars that aren't acoustic-electric and don't have pick ups, and also excels on other acoustic stringed instruments like banjo and mandolin. As far as condenser microphones go, this is about as cheap as they will get, and while I wouldn't normally recommend using condenser mics for live use, this is designed for playing out and does a great job in this situation. I haven't used too many other condenser mics for live shows, so I'm not sure what I could compare it to. Its heavy build and good sound quality make it a great option to bring out to shows for picking up acoustic instruments.

Micro recovery condenser instrument or choir

OVERALL OPINION

10 years of use.
Test conducted indoors:
Micro 8 m from the speaker means exactly what it says on the condition that the person pushes his way a bit.

Very good value for money.

Is unfortunately not bundled with one Bonette anti wind.

Micro relatively sensitive, think of cutting the track when it is not used because it takes everything within reach.
