"I have used Shure microphones for over twenty years and I can always count on them to capture my musical ideas with amazing clarity and fullness of tone wether on the road or in the studio. It's no surprise that Shure drum mics have become industry standard, world class microphone technology from a company committed to excellence". If you're looking to get a killer drum sound you can't afford to settle for second best. If you're serious about your drumming make Shure drum mics your first choice."
