L'avis de Rackham le rouge

Shure PG56
Micro cardoïde robuste et compact avec un très bon rapport qualité prix.
La capsule du PG56 est identique à celle du PG57. PG56 et PG57 sont des produits d'entrée de gamme répondant aux mêmes fonctions que le Beta 56, SM57 et Beta57.
Le PG56 s'adaptent parfaitement dans des configurations type batterie ou percussion (comme le Beta56). Personnellement j'ai comparé, dans les mêmes conditions, le PG56 et le SM57... Franchement c'est kif-kif (noter qu'un PG c'est 40% moins cher qu'un SM).


J'utilise le PG56 sur scène depuis 1 an.
Curieusement je ne suis ni batteur ni percussionniste mais j'ai choisi le PG56 pour un instrument à vent à forte pression acoustique (une bombarde pour les amateurs de musique celtique). Avant, pour ce même instrument, j'utilisait un SM58 que je trouvais trop "métallique". Avec le PG56 j'ai trouvé un son chaud reproduisant parfaitement les harmoniques graves et médiums de mon instrument.
Très bon rapport qualité/prix - peu emcombrant - couleur et niveau de sortie équivalent au SM57...

L'avis de JimboSpins (contenu en anglais)"Good first drum microphone"

Shure PG56
The Shure PG56 is an affordable kick and tom microphone, and when I say affordable I mean affordable! It is a Cardoid Dynamic microphone that only cost 69 dollars. I have not seen a kick drum or tom microphone that cheap in a long time. I have had this microphone since 2007, in fact it was one of the first kick drum microphones that I purchased for my own home studio because I couldn’t afford a more expensive one at the time. It comes with a solid mounting system that is well built and wont fall off your drums, the PG56 itself is a smaller microphone and you could probably even hook it up without the drummer even knowing that it is on the kick or toms. It does come with a 15 foot cable which isn’t a very good one and should be replaced if you purchase this microphone. The PG 56 is made for close proximity to your drum or source.


I love how small this microphone is, and if you are not use to drumming while having a microphone attached it can always be a bit different especially with your toms and snare, but the Shure PG 56 is already so small it will not matter if you know its there or not, you wont knock it off. I am still happy that I own this microphone even though I don’t really use it much anymore. It is still good to have just to travel with because of its size and the price of it keeps me worry free from it getting broken or stolen while we are out recording somewhere else. For the price you really can beat what you get with the Shure PG 56. It is well worth the 69 dollars to buy it, especially if you are just getting started with recording drums. It will be a great first drum microphone for you to record with from home.

Shure PG56
The Shure PG56 is an impressively small microphone designed specifically with drums in mind. It is a direct alternative to the SM57's, and often, the PG56 works better due to its small size. Once, a drummer came in and had no idea that he was being mic'ed because the PG56 microphones were so well hidden all around the drum set. Its size also betrays its image of durability. The Shure PG56 is a nastily rugged microphone, so wild drummers who still manage to hit the ridiculously small PG56 microphones on their toms are not going to blow it up like they may blow up an SM57. Don't get me wrong; the SM57 is pretty rugged. The PG56 microphones, are, simply by design, more safe from the abuses of a fast traveling stick of wood. And this thicker grill and padding make the PG56 pretty resistant to extremely high SPL levels. This is nothing I think anyone should be terribly impressed by, considering the fact that it is a dedicated drum microphone and this feature is a requirement of them.

The PG56 has a fairly standard frequency response, starting predictably at 50 Hz and rising to 15,000 Hz. Their response is tailored to deliver a nice punch, and while I have trouble describing the flavor, it provides a healthily budget minded alternative to the SM57. I will just say that it is in no means of lower quality in any way whatsoever.


The Shure PG56 is a very cute, but very impressive alternative to the SM57 when mic'ing up a drum kit for live use. There are indeed better sounding microphones out there, but not anywhere near at this price. As a vocalist, my standards for this are not terribly discerning, but I found them to be roughly on par with the vaunted SM57's. So use that standard, and decide for yourselves!
