Top Positive Review

I usually pop for the insurance on electronic items because the price isn??t too high and it has helped me many times. This time, unfortunately, the product arrived with internal damage and I returned it to Amazon (also no problem) and I made a quick inquiry on my warranty since the item was returned and I got a full refund the same day.

I have several of these warranties, and because there is no description on them I have no clue which one is for which product. It would be most helpful if that information was on the Warranty itself,

Customer Questions & Answers

I’m trying to decide between this mike, the SM48 and the PG 58. I would like the best mike for a band, short of the SM58.

Help! Which speaker can connect to this mike?

You can plug a Shure SM48 or Shure SM58 to hundreds of speakers, which is why they’re the world’s most popular, universal microphone (every performing musician I’ve known and every band carries a reliable and indestructible SM58 mic). It works with “performer’s” speakers, which have a built-in amp and pre-amp. Example??

Does the sm48s pick up hand movement while holding it? reviews of sm58s state that the sm58s does not.
Answer: Any mic including this and the sm58 will pick up some rumble if you hold it loosely and let it bounce around in your hand. If you hold it tightly and don’t let it move, it will pick up very little.

I’m planning on buying the behringer um2 with the sm48 to fix the background noise issue on my livestream. will this mic pick up background noise?
Answer: For your use case I recommend a phantom powered mic and some clever sound insulation. This mic is for live performance, not the right product for high quality studio audio recording.
