A class-A dynamic microphone that does not pinch your wallet! I have a home studio and bought this instead of a condenser mic because I live in a fairly noisy place. This works beautifully for me! If you're doing vocals however, I would suggest buying a windbreaker to avoid plosives.
A must have mic, Bajaao did a great job with the handling of this package💯
,Drums?? Recording or live sound you just need atleast one of this in your life
I use Shure SM57 in front of guitar amp and it works great. At times i use it for recording acoustic guitar as well, it works great if you place it in the right place. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for instrument mic
