Pick up the details

Nuance and detail are everything when you're working with acoustic instruments. Shure built the PG81 condenser microphone with the sensitivity to capture the quiet moments, and with a flat response that records instruments without coloration. The cardioid design ensures you'll pick up the sounds you want from the instrument, but not sonic information coming from the sides, making the PG81 less susceptible to feedback.

Durable and versatile

The PG81 boasts metal construction so it'll stand up to life on stage. You can operate the PG81 through phantom power or with a AA battery, and it has a handy on/off switch for on-stage control.
