The Shure PG81-XLR is a very versatile instrument microphone; I’ve been using it on stage and in the studio for about 15 years now. In the video below, you will hear how well it performs in studio settings; this time, I had to record the classical guitar part and make it sit well in this orchestral piece. The last part of the piece will feature the guitar part on its own while the orchestra takes over in some of the previous sections of the piece.
Over the years, I have been using this mic on stage, in guitar trios, as well as in the studio. At times, it even performed well for me on vocal parts, but it is mainly suited for acoustic guitars and percussion such as overhead positions on drum-sets. The PG81-XLR boasts an in-house battery compartment – this way, I never had to rely on phantom power which isn’t always available, especially when it comes to direct boxes.
Come join us this Tuesday, October 9, 2012, at 5:00PM for a microphone clinic hosted by the legendary microphone company, Shure. Paul Morris and Jenn Liang-Chaboud will be doing an educational session on microphone characteristics, such as, polar patterns, and dynamic vs. condenser. Also, we will be covering wireless systems, which includes the new FP wireless made for DSLR.
We encourage all you singers to come down and check it out, we might even ask you up on stage.

Looking for a gift for the person that has everything? Secret Santa got you on a tight budget? Or just looking for an EASY way to pick up your first instrument?
Easy Music Center has an ever growing selection of harmonicas ,books, microphones and accessories to get you blowing some harp today.
“Is that all?” you say? No no no ! We can also special order a huge array of Honer and Lee Osker harmonicas as well as books and DVDs from Hal Leonard.
But wait there’s more….We also host an occasional harmonica clinic on our stage featuring Nilo Marrone. It’s a great way to learn hands-on and play along with a truly amazing talent. He might even ask you up to solo so come prepared (we plan for this to become a quarterly event next year). And if that wasn’t enough, we also host an open mic every first Thursday and open up our stage so we can watch you… blow us away .
Here is a picture of a recent Nilo clinic with attendees posing with the harmonica sets they won. Wooo hoo!
We have a new microphone display at the King St. store. If you would like to hear the difference between the sm-58 and the e-835 you can. We have dozens of performance mics available for you to try out. Sorry ! No recording mics at the moment.
If you’re looking for a definitive blues harp voice, look no further than the SHURE – 520DX. It features a green and chrome die-cast casing that is contoured to fit perfectly between the harmonica and your hands. The attached cable with 1/4-inch plug allows the microphone to be connected to a high-impedance device and for those quick volume adjustments that you may need during your performance, it also features a volume control knob at the base of the microphone. Check out the video below to hear one of our very own customers playing on his recently purchased 520DX!!!
So I was checking out the Shure website when I stumbled across this. What’s this? It’s the Shure Mic Listening Lab. So what is it? It’s a collection of recordings done with Shure’s top microphones. Shure took their microphones in the studio and did various recording from different sources, such as, spoken voice, singing, drums, guitars, and more. I always wanted to do recordings of each microphone we had and post them on the web, I’m glad Shure beat me to the punch. If you’ve been wondering what that KSM9 or that BETA91 sounded like, take some time to check out this site.
As of late, I have been getting into recording and have been building my own small studio setup at home. In need of a snare mic, I decided to do a microphone shootout between popular mics for snares, and mics that are for other purposes. Check it out! Maybe it will help you, just like it did for me, find a mic that will suit your snare!
I used the Pearl M1470S snare, which is a 14×7 all maple shell drum. We routed this into a Presonus Firestudio Mobile, which went into Cubase 5. No EQ or compression was used on the files. Just raw tone baby!
Please join us at our King St. store on Wednesday, July 21, 2010 at 5:00 pm for our Shure Clinic hosted by Paul Morris. Paul is very knowledgeable when it comes to sound reinforcement and microphones in particular. Be sure to come and reap the benefit of his knowledge as he demos the new microphones from Shure, including the new amazing Ribbon Microphones and shares some new up-to-date info on what’s happening with wireless.
*Just added: Free Microphone Cleaning at 4:30pm. Bring in your microphones and get them cleaned and sanitized with Microphome.
