    Experience: Now a Hobbyist

    "Buy IT."

    Sound:
    I used 2 spaced overhead on a 50 instrument orchestra. Very dynamic mic. Handles very high SPL. Very wide range. Great piano mic. Would definately purchase another if something happened to one of the ones I own. Sound quality is almost like a Tube Newman 3 times the price.
    Feature:
    Included accessories you would think it is supposed to. No real frills here.
    Ease of Use:
    Very easy placement. Not very finicky as long as you keep them away from standing bass waves in the corners or side walls. Likes openess. Very spatial.
    Quality:
    It is a condensor mic. Just don't drop them.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Shure has awesome service. No problems here.
    Value:
    Excellent bang for the buck. To get better, more noticeable sound quality, you would have to spend about $1000.
    The Wow Factor:
    If you do any big stage recording and you want to hear the room, you need to buy this mic.
    Overall:
    I have had the set for 5 years and I am still very satisfied.

    "Best bass mic ever"

    Sound:
    I'm a bass singing in a southern gospel quartet. J. D. Sumner "the world's lowest bass singer used an Sm-81. The way I see it, if was good enough for him it is good enough for me. My high part also tried it set the same except for a little less bass on the mixer setting. It sounded great. we use Audio-technica for the other vocal mics and an electronic keyboard. I use Fender Squier 15" house with 12" subwoofer cabinet under it. I have a makie 1400watt power amp for the house and a 350watt amp for the monitors.
    Feature:
    I've tried three other mics that are susposed to be bass ingers mics. however this is greatest mic for bass response if ever tried
    Value:
    it is a little pricey for the average singer/musican especially if you buy one for each vocalist and the ones need for instruments. But what get what you payu for.

    Shure SM81 Cardioid Condenser Microphone Customer Review

    Sound:
    I used this mic in a project studio as drum overheads and was amazed at the cymbal sounds they produced. Cymbals sounded smooth and natural, not too bright and not pearcing, yet detailed and upfront if you want them to be. Seriously performed similarly to mics worth twice as much.
    Feature:
    I dont know about the accessories.
    Quality:
    Shure quality...
    Manufacturer Support:
    Dont own the mic
    Value:
    Deffinetly worth every penny!
    The Wow Factor:
    i would deff buy two!
    Overall:
    Unbalievable mic for the money
