Though this is not regarded as the best instrument mic out there I have to report that in terms of quality Vs price this is an excellent bargain.

As a Tom mic (which is what I use it for) it does everything I need. It transmits a warm, clean and consistent sound. Its design is very efficient and it is small enough to sit on any drum (from 8 inch to 16 inch) without interfering with the drummers set up or playing. It also comes with its own drum mount system which is simple and easy to use, not to mention a Sure XLR cable and leather carry case.

Overall the PG56 is a must for any studio on a limited budget or drummer that wishes to equip their drum kit with a decent mic setup for gigs or recording.

Light weight versatile and easy for engineers to work with coupled with the excellent price, service and delivery of makes this product another excellent bargain - it may not be a Neumann but it is none the less worth every penny.

I use four of them across my Gretsch studio drum kit and have always been happy with results.
