    I had 5 of these for a few years.. They worked and they were dirt cheap. The switches started popping and I finally bought some SP5s and couldn't believe the amazing sound difference for only a few bucks more. This mic served me well for a long time, but it doesn't have the depth and sparkling crisp clarity that the SP5's have. Spend a few more bucks on the SP5's or get some Behringer XM8500's they're both getting rave reviews and not much more. Looking back, I wish I never would've gotten these..

    I am surprised by all of the positive reviews of this mic. I bought this for my daughter and we have had nothing but problems with it. The thing is poorly made and no matter what cable we use it will not get a good connection. I shouldn't have to tape the cable to the mic to get it to work and then it doesn't always work. This mic also produced a humming sound and doesn't have the best sound quality. I guess you could say that it is a beginners mic but in the end if it doesn't work then what is it worth to a beginner. Don't try to save money by buying this because in the end you get what you pay for. You will more than likely be unhappy with it and be buying a more expensive one so save yourself the time and money and get one that will work.

    I´ved had three of these microphones throughout the years and for the value you cannot beat it, it sound really good eventhough at time it may give out some static but overall it's excellent.I use it to record and for instrumentation through my Behringer amplifier.Highly recomendable!

        Comments about Nady StarPower SP-1 Microphone:

        Needed a mic to do some backup vocals, but didn't want to spend a lot on one. After a bit of looking around, the price seemed fair, and the reviews were decent for this one. So far, the mic actually sounds really good.

        For the money, I'd say you'd have a hard time finding a better mic.

            Until I get the money for a Sennheiser e 835 or the SM58, this is what I have, and I have to say for the money, it does a really good job. Won't give you studio quality sound like a condenser mic, but still pretty darn good.

            If you want a Shure Beta 58a, then don't buy this. If you're looking for a durable microphone that is noise free and you need a bunch to have around, these are great! I've used them for vocals and instrument mic'ing with no issues. Hard to beat for the buck you spend!

                Comments about Nady StarPower SP-1 Microphone:

                I bought a pair of these for my mother to use for her vocal group. I was surprised at how durable they are. The constructions appears to be all metal, and they performed quite well on their first use, even after being dropped a couple of times ! A great general purpose mic, and a bargain, too.

                Outstanding Mic for Small Church Venue

                By Zalzan

                from Florida

                Comments about Nady StarPower SP-1 Microphone:

                I needed some mics to use in a small church (300 seats, two story ceiling). This mic is perfect. Running it through an Alesis 12 channel mixer, and this mic produces deep bass, crisp highs, and solid midrange, no distortion or feedback. For comparison, I also have $100 and $50 Shure mics, and the Nady sounds exactly the same. Bottom line is that most any mic is only as good as what you are plugging it into.
