Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Original April 9, 2013 review:
The photos for this item are extremely misleading; CVG12-B/C and CVG18-B/C do NOT include a mute button or red light-ring mute indicator. This is the only reason I gave it three stars. Otherwise, the quality is outstanding, as you'd expect from Shure microphones.
CVG12S / CVG18S = With Mute switch/LED, Inline Preamp CVG12RS / CVG18RS = With Light-ring, Mute Switch, Inline Preamp
Apparently none of these models are available in the USA market. (Why???)
As for the CVG12-B/C and CVG18-B/C, B means it's black, and C means it's cardioid... which is the currently case for all model variations.
Also, just in case you aren't aware: If you want your mic setup to look like the one in the photo, you need to also buy the ~US$60 CVD desktop base, lest you're OK with using the supplied flange mount, drilling holes into your desk, and keeping your mic mounted at fixed position.
Is everything a Shure should be. Very good mic at a good price.
I use it as a desk/podium top and it's great. Make sure you read the other reviews carefully so you know what you're getting.
- unless you have a female xlr connector where you want to use it, you need to order the base separately (the picture is deceiving). So, it's not quite as good a deal as it seems initially.
-it's long. I ordered the 12" version. The gooseneck part is 12", the mic head adds an inch, the connector another 4", and the base, if you use it, adds 2" more. So the 12" mic is really 18-19" long. Good for podium use but the 18" would have been unusable at the gig I initially ordered it for (thanks for the head's up, Wheeler).
- it needs phantom power. Not a biggie but just don't forget. I did but was saved by the fact that my Zoom recorder has it...
Very disappointed with Amazon; the microphone did not come with the solid base, as it is especified in the sale description and in the picture (it only came with an installation device that works if you want to place the microphone in one specific podium, fixed, not for different uses in different places and podiums). I'm also very surprised with Shure brand since I've been a user of this brand for more than 10 years (I work in music production industry), I never imagined this would happen to me, because we are talking about two major brands. By the way, from several similar items with lowest prices I choose this one due to the quality of the brand and it was a Prime selection to avoid my current situation.
