Mic question

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by crashie, Jun 7, 2004.


  1. I know its not the place, but i'm not vocalist, so anyway: shure pg-58 vs sennheiser E 815-S for garage vocals? (loud drummer, etc).
    any advices are appreciated alot
    (or may be something else in that price range, also welcome)

    IMHO, nothing beats a Shure SM 58 for live vocal mics, they can withstand much abuse, falls, bumps, etc.

    You can pound nails with these mics, they only cost about $99.00 brand new and they last a long time.

    FWIW, i'm a bassist that also sings lead vocals and I use the SM 58's all the time, have been for about 30 years or more!

    What she said. Spend the extra $20 and get the SM-58. You'll have it forever.
