This is a great system from small to medium setup that needs couple of wireless system. Of course you can't go wrong with an SM58 Head for quality of vocal microphones.

We were in a live sound situation where we have a tremendous amount of outside RF interference. i.e. 2 TV stations, a 50K watt radio station, multiple cell towers, plus 450-470 towers. This unit stopped all the problems we were having.

This microphone has clear and accurate voice reproduction. I have a very low voice, and I had previous damage to my vocal chords that caused the base to be so dominant that I always sounded muffled when I used a microphone.

I use this in A/V rental for hotels. The only limitation is you can only have 5 at a time however if that's not an issues there is no better wireless mic system. sounds great and never has any interference.

Got 4 of these to use for some simple percussion and drums. First test was on a drum kit on the snare and toms. I was shocked with the results. Crispy high mids on the snare yet also grabbing body! Iaalso got solid warm body on the toms with a lot of definition.

I purchased this so I could start recording a steel tongue drum which it works really well for, I also was able to get some really clear recordings of a wood bell (called a Han) and some large metal bells at a retreat center and it did a great job of eliminating the background noises.

Used for vocals and spoken word where people tend to hold the mic too far away from their mouth

I bought my 57a to use as a vocal mic. I've used Shure mics for almost 50 years, and have seldom, if ever, been disappointed in the performance of a Shure product. This mic proved the exception to that rule. The tone was thin, and no amount of eq adjustment made a positive change.
