I have owned two of the PVM22 mics over the years. It is a very hot mic that sounds fantastic for vocals, speech or even instruments. For those who complain about feedback, I say this: First, like any other tool, you need to use the right tool for the job. If you're playing heavy metal (for example) at blistering levels in a garage, this mic will pick up allot. A lower gain mic may suite your needs better in that environment. Second, because of the high gain of this mic, knowing what you're doing is a must, equipment isn't always forgiving for those who don't know the proper way to use it. The good news is that the PVM22 is very loud and cuts through like a knife, very clear with excellent warmth. They also make the PVM46 hyper-cardioid microphone if that better suites your needs better. Both are outstanding.

I think that Peavey's PVM series often gets overlooked for whatever reason. Give the Peavey PV22 the ol' A/B test at your local store and judge for yourself. That's what sold me on it years ago. You may be pleasantly shocked at how well it performs compared to the "household name" brand microphones.

Overall, I give it 5 stars. In the price range in which it sells, it's as good as the best of them, and it's proudly made in the USA!
Well built, diamond coated diaphragm, neodymium iron boron magnet, cardioid unidirectional polar pattern, and made in the USA.
This mic will take a beating with the best of them, very well made and road worthy.
In the price range that this mic sells for, it is a fantastic value.

Being an avid Shure SM58 user and fan, accepting anything less than the 58?s near flawless performance isn?t a consideration. The Peavey mic is much hotter than the 58, however, this attribute is its downfall. The feedback picked up by this mic was annoying, to say the least. Unless your rehearsal location is large enough to allow setting up in live performance positioning, I suspect you will have the feedback issue as well. I have not played live with this mic yet, so I can?t give an opinion there. I can say that for tight quarters playing of ?louder music? the Peavey mic is ill-suited. Try it out before you buy!

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I have used this mic in a lot of different settings, from a church worship service to studio recording, to just needing something for sound.The are very hot mics, will induce feedback if you do not know what you are doing, but sound wonderful for the money. I would compare these to most mics in the $300 - $400 range. I have been very pleased with this mic and have installed them in several local venues. Without complaint.

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I have had this microphone for 5 or 6 years and it is awesome. It is a very good vocal mic and instrumental mic. It pics up on them both. Its has taken a couple of falls and it still works like new. if u are using the right speakers it shouldnt give too much feedback. This mic is well worth the money. The value is great and it lasts very long if u take care of it. I wouldnt have any other mic brand than peavey!

Blows away Shure Beta 58A

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I have 2 of these mics for more than 2 years and are the best mics I have found hands down. I have used them in 2 different band situations, a straight-up rock'n'roll band and a rock/progressive and they do wonderful live. They are hot and can feedback but when dialed in correctly, there is no comparison!!!

Great microphone for teh price...

By Mezzoola

from Victoria, BC

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I've had my PVM 22 for 14 years. I would have given it a 5 for durability but this is, in fact, the second one I've owned. The first one, only a few weeks old, was the victim of our band director's flailing arm, knocked it flying and broke it. I was able to get a direct replacement, no questions asked. This one has performed reliably for the past 14 years, has some dents, don't know how they got there.LOVE the responsivness of this mic. Can only directly compare to SM58, which I use on occasion, and I do prefer this mic. It definitely does have better high frequency response than the SM58. It is hotter, so you have to watch feedback. I use it personally and also many of my singing students use it in recitals. Becuase of the recitals I have been able to hear many different voices use it in a single evening. Of course, it is impossible to adjust for each singer in a recital setting like that, so I try to find the best compromise for everyone. I find this mic definitely brings out the subtleties in the voices.Personally I have used it in small to medium venue settings. I sing mostly jazz, standards and some pop in the public setting. My performances are always understated, most instrumentation I have is piano, bass, drums sometimes guitar or guest brass/wind, so no experience in the louder rock setting.Highly recommend for performance, and quality in this price range.

Quality at a good price

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I've owned and used my PVM 22 for over 8 yrs now. It's been excellent in every situation I've thrown it into. As for anyone who says it's not tough, my wife ran over mine with my truck about 18 months ago, it got a little squished, but still works like a charm. No problems here.

Good but not great

By Outlawcountry

from St. Louis

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

Every mic is different for every singer but I've owned and used this mic for 4 years playing nearly every weekend in a variety of settings from small to large venues, and it's a quality mic that is hands down better that a SM58. For the money, it is a good value. Tough, reliable and steady, it will give you more definition than most mics in its price range. It will feedback depending on your stage settings, so if you don't like playing with the PA or have a loud stage volume you might want to research some more. The other draw back is that while it provides more definition and clarity than similar priced mics, if you have a crooner voice ( a la Roy Orbison, Chris Issak, Alision Krause ) or believe you have a lot of subtleties in your voice, this mic will not showcase that. It will just get lost in the mix. It's a good mic, just not that good. As compared to similar priced mics it will allow you to sing easier than say a 58, but unless you always sing at a medium to high volume I think something else with a higher price tag might be better suited for you.

Five years going strong!

By Jaxmyers

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I've had it for a little over five years, playing indoor/outdoor/big/small venues and it is awesome. It is definitely hotter than the SM 57's and SM 58's, but you don't lose tone or quality. I have never had a problem with the PVM 22. I noticed a couple comments on "feedback". This could happen with a low-end PA system or just bad positioning in a small or large room, but any mic is susceptible with those factors.

LOVE MY PVM 22

By ASWEGOHOMESTEAD

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I have used my Peavy PVM22 for about a year now and it is a great mic for everything I do in my hobby studio. Acoustic guitar, vocals, harmonica, box drums and a variety of flutes, percussion instruments all have recorded perfect with this mic. I can only speak from a hobbist standpoint but for the home recording studio I don't think you will find a more adaptable mic. I use mine with my Maudio FastTrack USB interface perfectly!!

great clarity & bulletproof

By Uncle Dognose

from McMinnville, OR

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I have what has been politely & accurately called a "gravelly" voice. The PVM 22 keeps it clearer than Shures or EV's costing much more. Before buying it, I A/B'd all three brands, and the PVM 22won, hands down. Mine's been beat to s*** in the clubs and other gigs for 3 years now, and it just keeps sounding great.

Dissapointed

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I am not the type to defer to personal bias in order to trash a particular product. I am not generally the type of person to write a review, however I feel I must share my poor experience with these microphones. I purchased 4 of them around 5 years ago under recommendation from a sales rep who described them as similar to an sm-58 but with higher output and better high freq response. What they ended up sounding like is a very poor quality desktop computer mic. I noticed a pronounced lack of midrange vocal definition as if the 800hz to 2khz range had been grossly attenuated. Under no circumstances (Eq, dynamics processing, different vocalists) could I salvage the mess of sound this mic produced and ended up swapping it out for an Sm58 that performed beautifully. I suspect and sincerely hope that I received a number of defective microphones and I strongly urge anyone considering the purchase of the pvm-22 to try it out before buying it.

I have two of these mics they blow away my shure sm 57, 58 and my beta 57a. I have had no problem with feedback whatsoever. I use them for vocals and have used them for guitar mics in a pinch.

Great high quality mic.

By PeaveyUser1

from Maine

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

I've owned this mic. For about 6 years now, and it still works great. It has been dropped numerous times, the rubber skin is peeled off from putting it in mic. Stands so many times, and the head is dented and losing the paint from being dropped, and even after all that it still sounds new! Great microphone for the money.

Too Expensive For Quality

By Joe-gg8BT

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

This mic is way too expensive for the quality that you get. I bought this mic about 6 years ago, and it was great for about 4 months. After that, it started going in and out on me. Then my guitarist knocked over the mic stand during rehearsal and that was it. It hasn't worked since.I now use Audio-Technica mics and they don't fail me. Even their lower end stuff is better than this. I was very dissapointed in this mic. I expected a better product from Peavey

A touch of reverb?

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Peavey PVM 22 Diamond Series Microphone:

The women in my band love this mic because it's not sonically pure! It comes across with a tiny bit of reverb which makes the women sound better. Certainly not what you want for a high quality set up, but if you're running without effects, or you're using your effects for something else (Chorus maybe), this mic has quite a pleasing sound. It's a little too much for me, as I'm a loud singing guy, but again, the women dig it.
