The Nady SP-5 is a no-brainer for 10 bucks. It's not a Shure Beta 58, but for $10, you're going to be hard pressed to do better. Sound is full and punchy with vocals, just like it should be with a good dynamic mic, feedback rejection is good, and it's built well, too. It's a pretty good mic, and not just "for the money". I'd say quality-wise, it's comparable to the Peavey & Shure mics in the $40-$60 range.
Of course the king of the budget mics is the Behringer XM8500. These are the equal to a Shure Beta 58, (a $150 mic) for $20!
Thanks to deals like these, nowadays even the most financially strapped garage band can stock up on decent mics for chump change. I remember only a few years ago when $10 or $20 would get you a cheap plastic hunk of junk tape recorder mic from Radio Shack or Wal-Mart. How times have changed!
My Nady mics are working well after 13 years of on and off use from heavy to stored badly in the attic. Never had a single problem with any of then. I gigged at least once a week with them for probably 4 of those years, and weekly usage for mic'ing up amps, and doing vocal tracks at my home studio.
Vocal quality spoken, and sung matches the SM-58 for MY vocal range. YOUR voice may be very different in results. I tend toward baritone, and don't do lead at all.
These mics have been fantastic for podcasting use, as well as for backing vocals in a band setting. I have noticed that singers that get into higher octaves than I am capable of, the SM-58 sounds just a hair cleaner.
I would recommend picking one of these up to compare to the SM-58 for yourself. Unless there is something unusual about your voice, you should be very hard pressed to hear a difference between the two, aside from the leftover money in your wallet cheering.
I HIGHLY recommend using these with a windscreen / pop filter of some kind, just like any mic of this type you want to protect the element from your spit. I use the foam ball type windscreens with good success.
I tend to take very good care of my gear, but I am not extreme about it, I just don't dunk my mics in beer glasses or toss them to the floor kind of stuff. After all these years, they still work like new. Nothing to complain about at all.
This mic performs pretty well considering the price.
It has no on/off swich which I like for non-professional singers. It is a fine mic for speaking and it works well enough for singers but wouldn't recommend it for quality vocal use. But a good general-purpose mic.
Fairly sturdy construction.
Very tight pattern.
Adequate but not impressive range
The Tight pattern listed above can be a problem for people who do not know how
to use a mic. if they turn their head slightly the voice really drops out dramatically.
Tough to get the xlr cable plugged into it and when I do it comes our several time a night.
After a few short months and less than 30 uses this mic's sound quality has deteriorated dramatically.
In addition, I can't get the xlr cable to stay in the mic body without coming our repeatedly during a show. This is regardless of the brand of cable I use.
I can't recommend this mic at all though I really wanted to like it.
I'm going to replace it with a Shure SM48 and see if that works sufficiently as a less-expensive mic but this one is going into the scrap pile.
