I'm not Shure (Excuse the pun!) if this post is in the correct forum however I couldn't think where else to submit it :? Having compared the Shure SM58's with other microphones, I noticed that it is not as sensitive picking up sound. With an AKG D 880M for instance, the gain does not have to be turned up as high for the same level of output. The SM58 is the preferred microphone by many musicians and I am wondering, could the low sensitivity be because I am not setting the EQ on the mixer correctly for the microphone? However, if the EQ on the mixer is set to flat when comparing microphones, the other ones still seem to be more sensitive?
