I had been using an SM58 for the last few years, having been told they were the best. However, I always had problems using the SM58, having to keep the volume lowered to avoid feedback and the need to shout rather than sing into it. I was fed up and desperate so searched online and discovered the Sennheiser E835s. Other bandmates discouraged me from buying it as they said it couldn't be any good at that low price...However - I ignored them and purchased this mic. Oh my gosh what a difference this has made to my stage performance. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am! I can have the volume increased with no feedback, just fabulous clear tones without having to overstretch my vocals and no screaming into the mic. Now I can just sing and my voice is heard. Fabulous. What else can I say? Oh, the mic itself is lovely to handle, has a good strong weight, sturdy design and even comes with a little pouch. The bundle from Thomann was an absolutely amazing deal (inc mic stand - good as a spare - and a lead). I highly recommend this mic if you, like me, struggle with the SM58. I think SM58s are great for bassy voices but they don't suit all vocal types. Now I can go on stage feeling stress-free. Love it!
I bought this microphone about 2 years ago. I needed a cheap yet effective microphone and with this microphone I struck gold!
I have used it or everything from vocals to guitar,bass, and drums! I've used it on everyone of my recordings since I got it and it has never yet me down. Not once has it cut off and given me any grief. I currently use it as my vocal microphone as a backing singer in a band and I'm always told how my vocals are very clear, even compared to our lead vocalist who uses an "industry standard" microphone.
This microphone is built like a tank and despite my butter fingers it hasn't eve chipped the paint! If you're thinking of buying this microphone I guarantee you that you will not buy twice, unless you want another one to add to your arsenal!
