    Comments about Shure PG56-LC Dynamic Microphone:

    I've been using shure 57's and this compact unit does the job just fine getting it into the space restrictive spot of micing the snare and it's a bit less expensive.

    Comments about Shure PG56-LC Dynamic Microphone:

    The PG-56 is in my opinion the shining star in Shure's PG line. I've got 3 of them in the mic case that get deployed on toms.

    A great compact design that lets you aim 'em where you need to and stay out of the drummer's way. And if a stick does happen to land on the mic, they just shrug it off and keep going.

    IF the drummer has his kit tuned correctly, then it doesn't take a log of EQ to get a good sound. A bit of cut around 300Hz and kick up 2-3kHz a bit and you're in business.

    These mics are a great deal on their own. But, when you consider that you also get the rim-mount clip in the package (which would cost you around $20 if you bought it separately), the PG-56 is an amazing value.

    Would I use these on an arena show for 20,000 people? Probably not. But, for club and regional gigs they're hard to beat!

    Secret Weapon for GUITAR

    By Rob

    from NYC

    Comments about Shure PG56-LC Dynamic Microphone:

    I'm a producer and engineer with multiple national and international releases. I have a bunch of expensive microphones geared towards guitar and I have to say that although Shure has pegged this mic as a Drum mic I use it on guitar cabs with amazing results. You will notice that most mics geared towards Toms are also used for guitar cabs. I actually prefer the 56 over a 57 which I find a tad bit "honky" in the mids where the 56 sounds warmer. This mic pulls the sweet mid tones right out of a cabinet and sit in a mix. And the price is an incredible steal! And by the way, it aint all that bad on toms too!

    Satifaction Guaranteed

    By Vintageblue

    from Waukegan

    Comments about Shure PG56-LC Dynamic Microphone:

    I first heard of this mic in a review printed in a drum magazine, and when my band decided to go the home recording route, I looked here first. Shure's PG series mics emulate all their high-end mics at a lower cost. While the PG56 is modeled after it's bigger cousin (Beta56) it lacks a bit of the presence in the mix. For demos and such it displays an accurate sound of toms, snares and kicks, though I think it's a bit to muddy/dark for snare work. Could just be my personal taste in neutral/bright snares.For live shows I have the 56 internall shock mounted in my 16"x20" Birch Ludwig kick, and it never dissapoints.
