good buy

By officialbob5, 22/10/2013
This is a Micro purpose. I'm using it to host parties and I lend a cousin of singer Rai.


I bought it last spring, microphones animations are not misfires, I had a few.

The highlight: aesthetics, ergonomics, clarity of decision path supplied with 5m cable shure and a nice sticker.
The weak point ... I do not find him.

I acquired for € 60, I made a good buy, I am very happy.

very good talkback

cardiovascular dynamics


I use it in talkback for 1 month and I am not disappointed. the strength of the material is visible (except interuptor which seems fragile). it is intended to voice spoke thus promotes mediums, very good record in conference for a bargain concurence!

for the use that I actually I agree ... I did not put the price of an SM 58 for the talkback! except for the song rather see a 58 (PG SM)

note that there is a version of PG 48 Asymmetrical (cast as lead on micro toys) and a balanced XLR version (slightly more pro)

microphony (handling noise) is important always up to the conf otherwise impeccable in talkback!

its ok

The Shure PG 48 was a mic that I purchased years ago, probably around 6 years ago just because I needed a mic to record with on my laptop from home. Just do lay some pretty basic vocals down. I didn’t even have an audio interface at the time I just had the right wire connections and plugged it right into the mic in port on my laptop. When I purchased the Shure PG 48 for around 60 bucks or so I was very skeptical , I normally don’t use mics that are that cheap because that’s exactly it, they are cheap and provide poor quality.


Now I wont sit here and say that it sounds perfect and there wasn’t a need to upgrade to a different mic or anything like that. Because it wasn’t perfect, (could have been better if I had an audio interface at the time). But just using it how it was on my laptop still gave me the decent recordings that I needed to get some ideas and know which direction I wanted to go when I really went to the studio to lay the song down. But I don’t think its possible for this mic to be used as a main mic even in your house because it just doesn’t provide a clear enough natural sound. Everything kinda sounded muffled and really low quality to me. But It really didn’t matter because I didn’t need great quality just to record some stuff on the go with my laptop. So it served its purpose for a few months. Shure should have put a little more effort into making this mic a better quality even if they had to raise the price of a little bit. There are already enough cheap mics on the market that provide similar quality to this one. If you are just starting out, this could work for you or if you just need something simple to demo with it could work. But you wont get quality that you are happy with or quality that could be your master.

quality and great support

The Shure PG48 is a Dynamic microphone.  It can be used in almost any setting.  I don't recommend it for Vocals in a Studio setting because you should really be using a quality condenser for that.  But, I was told a few times by a few different people that the PG48 and the SM 57 are identical microphones with the exception of the Grills.  With that being said, I have used my PG48 on all sorts of gear including Guitar amps, bass amps (in conjunction with a Beta 52a), drums (snares and toms) and yes, even vocals (before I got some nice condensers).  With the exception of Vocals, this thing sounds great on everything in the studio.  There is a reason that Shure SM mics are the industry standard.  They are very clean and crisp and they can take a really good beating and keep on trucking.  When it comes down to preference however, I always take my PG48and my BG 5.1 vocal condenser if its just me singing through them. 


One of the best things about all Shure Mics is the amazing warranty they have.  Even when its out of warranty, no matter what happened, or what condition it is in, you can always send it to shure with a nominal fee (about $35 to $40) and get a brand spanking new one in return.   Besides that, this mic also gets props for its ability to take a beating and still sound great.   For the price )and its durability, this is a great mic.  The precision and quality of the sound is excellent for a mic in this price range.  I have used many different condenser mics including Samsons, Audix (also very nice), and behringer and the only one that can share the stage in my opinion is the Audix.  The rest are just wastes of money.  Yes, I would definitely keep a few of these around all the time.  You never know when you might need one and you can always be sure that it will live up to its reputation.
