Shure PGA57-XLR Cardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone
Contrary to the layman’s perception, microphones aren’t just made for capturing vocals. Take a look at any stage and you’ll see that drum kits and guitar amps are also paired with mics that are there to subtly yet seamlessly get the job done. Enter the Shure PGA57, a dynamic microphone that is ideal for those types of uses, particularly with snare drums and amp cabinets. The unit’s cardioid pickup pattern captures a direct signal of the source that it’s being pointed at, while carefully filtering out any unwanted ambient room noise. Because it’s a Shure microphone, this unit is also built to last, so feel free to give it the kind of regular abuse that you would usually reserve to initiating the newest crew member on his first national tour.
