      Great for instruments 1/12/2010

      This is the same mic internally as the SM58. It is used in practically every recording studio and live. Perfect for micing that guitar/bass amp, brass instruments, etc. To the reviewer who gave it a 1 because it didn't come with an XLR cable - No microphone does except for cheap Radio Shack $20 microphones. A quality XLR cable is available from many sites for less than $15.

      HELPFUL?: Yes No
