Can anybody tell me how a Shure PE588 will for as a harp mic. Just pushed the button on one for $28.00
Not a lot lost if not, I think they were pretty popular long ago and may have had that model before but can't really remember.

Thanks

I've never used one, but PE588s are sometimes described as 'ideal harmonica mic' or 'world's best harmonica mic'. So somebody obviously thinks they're good harp mics! I can't see that they'd be vastly different from any other vocal mic, but that's just an opinion based on the tech specs.

I sometimes use a SM-58 clone for a clean sound and I imagine the PE588 would not be hugely different, even though it is Hi Z. YMMV!
