Cardioid Condenser Instrument Microphone

Shure PG ALTA Series

The PGA81 is part of the PG ALTA series of microphones from Shure; a range of microphones that aim to deliver professional quality at an affordable price. Also, no Shure microphone is complete without that sturdy, rugged construction that Shure is legendary for. The Shure PGA81 condenser microphone brings together that hardy construction and excellent recording quality to make a fantastic device that epitomises what the Shure PG Alta microphones are all about. This version of the PGA81 condenser microphone comes with an XLR-XLR cable.

Sensitive Acoustics or Percussion

With a frequency response of 40 – 18,000 Hz, the PGA81 condenser mic is great at recording sensitive acoustic instruments; picking up every nuance of the timbre but is more than at home when recording percussion. The Shure PG81 works great when recording the overheads on a standard drum kit and works even better if you have two!
