Let's be reasonable here. If you purchased this mic at the low price it's selling for on amazon, you shouldn't expect a professional sounding mic. I purchased this to use in a small room for voice lessons. It does the job. I would never use this on stage because of its slightly muffled sound. It also works best on a stand; there's a lot of noise from your hand movement when holding the mic.

I run a professional PA system and I had some trouble with 2 separate bands dropping my sm 58's on ground. Well during that show I bought 5 of these thanks for Amazon Iphone app. I keep them in the mic case with the 58s and when I have a feeling the band is going to be violent I switch them out for these puppies.

I would feel comfortable running a high end show with these mics cause they sound great. I personally would use them the regularly for back up vocals for there low cost and superior sound.

but some shows are very particle about having 58's. but these are the bands who know how to treat a mic.

of course nothing beats a classic shure sm 58

I've been using these PG48 mics for years - the sound is nearly indistinguishable from Shure's industry-standard SM58 when in a rehearsal situation. As a singer in metal bands, I've very rough on my microphones. This mic holds up to any aggressive style and can handle lots of abuse.

I damaged my 'go to' rehearsal mic (a 5-year-old PG48) during band practice on a Wednesday, and had another rehearsal on Friday -I needed my Shure Mic QUICK! - I placed my order with Amazon and my mic was delivered and ready to go Friday afternoon.

I definitely recommend this mic for anyone wanting quality on a budget.

This mic is typical of Shure: good and tough. For the price, don't expect studio performance; this is a good mic for garage bands, karaoke, anywhere you don't want to shell out on for the superb SM series. It is a good sounding mic that does what it's supposed to.

This is a great microphone. I got this mic instead of the PG58 because of the 10 Hz difference. The PG48 is rated from 70-15,000Hz while the PG58 is rated from 60-15,000Hz. I probably won't be able to tell the difference between the two so I got the PG48-QTR and I'm glad I did! It's a nicely built mic! Its solid and it looks like it can handle a little abuse, I haven't tried that theory yet. The PG48-QTR come with the cable to a 1/4" plug, a clip for putting on a mic stand, which is a plus, a bag to hold the mic in, and some other accessories that I won't use. Now it doesn't come with a 1/4" to 3.5mm adapter so you probable just have to go to the shack to get it!

If your unsure to buy this mic, get it! You won't probably regret it!

The Gain on this mic isn't the greatest, but for speeches and soft recordings: this guy can handle it all very well!

This mike works pretty well. I use it with an Yamaha Stage Pass PA system. I would like it better if if picked up from more that a few inches. I don't think it is a failing of the mike just my personal preference. It is definitely worth the money and if you don't want to spend much this is a really good choice.

2 of these have been used every Friday for karaoke for over a year now. The only part that has had a failure is the XLR cable that came with them, but I consider that still very good consider people are idiots and swing the mic's trip on the cables etc.

It genuinely shocked me for it's capabilities when equalized right. I own a beta 58a and have had plenty of experience with the industry standard sm58's with my friends plugging into my mixer/pa all the time. Assuming you'll be doing an eq on a mixer or amp of some sort, all you have to do to get it sounding on par with an sm58/gig worthy setup is add a bit more volume, lower the bottom and boost the mid and high range a bit and you've got yourself a worthy mic. By default (without a mixer board in the equation) the mic sounds muffled, muddy, quieter and has inferior handling noise insulation compared to the sm58's and beta's. The mix eq fixes all except for the handling noise. Gotta be careful with that. It's not quite as good but good enough with normal care and use. It's sort of middle of the road in that department. Probably barely noticeable when playng loud. But it's got an on/off switch so thats ok in my books.feedback resistance good. For its price point, its perfect for gigging with especially if you leave it on your stand, perfect for use in karoake/functions/open mic nights and perfect for rocking out in garages on a tight budget. Im buying another when i get chance.

4 stars instead of 5 only because this thing won't tune your guitar or carry your amp. I use this solo, in a duo with a bass player, in a trio with drums and bass. I have a regular gig at a medium sized club that is basically one large room. I use it through a Pyle Pro self contained Pa into which I also plug my Martin GRP elec/acoustic. The sound quality is excellent. The volume seems limited only bny what the Pyle Pro will put out. I would have no hesitation using this for bigger rooms with a full band and PA. I haven't heard a hint of feedback and the on/off switch is a plus.
The 36.99 price might seem to good to be true but think of the things for which we are paying less for than we used to. I bought a 32" Toshiba flat screen for around 230 bucks, Think of what that would have cost even five years ago or less. The same is true of a lot of Audio Gear. A lot of companies are bringing high quality elctronics and music to the market but it's great to have a company like Shure make something so good and so affordable. They have always made a high quality product and now they have one that almost anyone can afford. I cannot recommend it strongly enough.
