That sounds an like ideal use.I'm doing my first karaoke gig tomorrow in 2 years. I will be using a dual set of VocoPro VHF mics that have shiny stuff on them to make them look cool, and a dual set of GTDs. Total cost for the 4 mics/both systems is roughly $200.
They will sound fine for the gig, and client/guests will be happy with the mic performance
Shure makes BOTH consumer and professional level gear. It's not necessary fro you to believe that.You continue to tap dance, but the stats on Amazon.com speak for themselves. Regardless of how many people buy elsewhere, the PERCENTAGES of the reviewers speak for themselves.
To believe your argument, we’d have to believe that NEW Shure products on eBay and Amazon are inferior to those same models sold by your “professional” audio sales sources... NOT LIKELY.
Keep tap dancing Fred Austere. When it has the SAME model number, it’s the SAME PRODUCT... whether sold by Amazon or elsewhere.Shure makes BOTH consumer and professional level gear. It's not necessary fro you to believe that.
It certainly does not appear that you are at all familiar with the professional products division.
Yes... I know. They are ALMOST as good as GTD’s. GTD-G622 - 90% positive, Shure BLX288/PG58 - 80% positive.Yes, but the BLX, PGX, etc., regardless of seller, are units in the consumer lines.
I think it’s PITIFUL that Shure has to go to that extent... Fortunately, GTD owners are smart enough NOT to throw their mics in the ocean, run over them with a pickup truck, or barbecue them.
RF: Shure QLXD with directional antenna kit for wedding ceremony, corporate presentation, live singer./musicianOut of morbid curiosity what mics do you use as your go to Bob?
Very surprising. That combo is about as good as it gets. Meyer's are extremely accurate while being articulate for vocals and QLXD is practically the same as using a wired mic.From a DJ standpoint dealing with clients it likely doesn't matter what you use so long as it's used correctly. As long as it works and sounds OK and the client is happy it's a winning situation...When it doesn't the problems occur and buying a better product, while it won't eliminate the chance of failure, will lessen it.
I did a wedding last night and they used the house system for speeches (their choice). The house system is a Meyer sound line array with I believe a Shure QLXD (I just got a quick look at it). The sound wasn't great and it was very hard to hear the speakers. People kept asking me to turn it up and I kept explaining it's the house system. Now this wasn't fault of the gear it was the tech. It brings back to it really doesn't matter what you use if it's not used correctly and the client is not happy
