The Shure PG81 is a Cardioid Condenser (electret bias) microphone ideal for capturing sound from acoustic instruments. The PG81 has a frequency response of 40Hz to 18kHz, providing linear, smooth signal reproduction of acoustic guitar, cymbals, piano, strings, woodwinds and ensembles. The microphone has a slim-profile design, making it ideal for overhead drum placement.

The Shure PG81 Features:

* Flat frequency response is wide and uniform
* Consistent sensitivity through frequency range
* Cardioid polar pattern less susceptible to feedback in high volume settings
* Condenser cartridge has a lightweight, sensitive diaphragm
* Precisely and smoothly captures sound nuances
* Powered by AA battery or phantom power supply
* Internal shock mount for reduced handling noise.
* Durable metal construction
* On/off switch for onstage control
* PG81-XLR Includes 5.75m (15 ft) XLR to XLR Cable, Microphone Clip, 5/8 inch to 3/8 inch Thread Adapter, Storage Bag, AA Battery
