    Anybody admit to buying one of these ES-57s or ES-58s? How is it?

    If they're cheap enough buy one and tell us what you think.

    I don't know about those.
    But I do know about some other 58 knock off's, the Samson R21's. I have used them, and I can say that they are good mic's.
    If you don't go with those others, the Samson's are pretty good sounding and you can get a 3 pack for $49.99
    How about that price?!
    I didn't believe that they would be worth a sh!t for that price, boy was I surprised. I thought they sounded a lot like a SM58, but not exactaly, and with not as much lower end. Which I don't really like about the 58's anyhow. Only last test would be, how strudy are they? Or how long will they last?

    Thanks Guy. Yeah, I don't imagine you could use the knockoffs as a hammer like you can the real thing. When I pick one up I'll post a review.
