My first terrible microphone in my look at counterfeits

rob aylestone

I've found my first product to avoid! Be very wary if you see a Shure PGA52 advertised. In a way, to actually counterfeit a product from a budget range is a bit odd anyway, so to find this microphone so horrible was a bit of a surprise. It doesn't even have the same shape as the original!

Pretty funny, though probably not so much for folks that actually spent money thinking (fantasizing) that they are getting an actual Shure mic.
Maybe it's cashing in on people who really have no money at all? I don't think I'd want a PGA52 in the first place, but this does seem to be a cheap dynamic capsule in a big, empty case!
