Certainly no Shure thing
Smooooth, 26.06.2017
Hefty in the hand if not in the ears. The case provided is quaint, and the cable reliable. Something nearer to an SM57 than a 58, though I use 'near' liberally. Certainly more liberally than one should use these in the studio. Now, for the price, they are fantastic ? but without that qualifier three stars at best. No good on an amp, instead I personally use these as a secondary mic for acoustic guitars. They do however have a peculiar proficiency when up close on a double bass, so if one can't afford a specialised clip-on for their upright perhaps these are worth a try. Solid build, in any case, so not likely to need replacement any time soon.

Just perfect
Ottavio, 30.01.2018
For a microphone this cheap I was actually surprised by the quality.

Little bit sensitive to feedback but just settle in the right position and the problem is solved.

Definitely Recommended.

Probably stick with the MB 85
drdolittle, 15.12.2015
I have a couple of mics from Thomann - this one I bought as a "give to the pubic" mic for anyone who wants to get up an sing a number at an acoustic session. The problem I have with it is that it carries over a lot of "mic handling noise" particular if your crooner is wearing rings. Also the overall output sound character is a bit on the tinny side. For the money it does what I want and I don't have to stress if it gets dropped or swung around- but for an extra ¤5 you get a lot more performance if you go up to the MB 85 in my opinion.
