Anyone have real-world experience using this setup with a live band pushing it hard plugged into a 15 or 20-amp GFCI receptacle?
One of the nice things with the DNA is the ability to limit the current draw.  20 amp circuit?  Set it to 18 amps and it'll never pop.  You'll get as loud as you can get on that draw.

"no worries, I found one for sale in Texas and that should tide us over".
Lol! Probably cheaper than a service call!!

Local theatre is still running a PM1D.  Just got a call a couple days ago, one of the brains died and when can I look at it - I said right now no idea, we're slammed with High Holy Days, university stuff and other events, and he says "no worries, I found one for sale in Texas and that should tide us over".

Whatís the wireless system being used?  The best capsule in the world will sound like garbage if the wireless part of the rig is having interference or dropouts.

Agreed.

Also, make sure it's not a counterfeit SM58 capsule. Or that the capsule in question isn't defective. Spin a known-good capsule on the mic and compare.

Sandisk Ultra 64.
Reformat as Fat32 and works perfectly.
I've left it tracking for 2hrs straight....has been flawless so far.

I've got a wireless 58 and a Beta 58 capsule, both sound great.
I gig with a Sennheiser 945 (and have a 965, which on small stages is a feedback machine).
I like the 945 and Beta 58 very much....but the regular 58 still sounds great.

Wonder if they had the gain set properly on the handset?

Are you sure they were SM58's and not PGA58's?

I have a couple channels of the cheaper BLX wireless (about as low as you can go from Shure), one with an SM58 capsule and another one with the Beta58 capsule....I can't notice any sonic differences with my wired SM58's, though I don't have a Beta58 wired to compare to.

It typically costs about $1000 to get a wireless mic that sounds ALMOST as good as a $30 cable.

Wired will ALWAYS sound better.  Back a few years ago, cheap wireless was all but useless.  These days with digital systems you can sometimes get acceptable results with cheaper stuff, but again, it's never going to be as good as that piece of wire.

Hi Phil, two things come to mind here:

Whatís the wireless system being used?  The best capsule in the world will sound like garbage if the wireless part of the rig is having interference or dropouts.

Regarding the feedback, is the wireless version being walked around the stage (and into places it shouldnít be) compared to a wired mic on a stand?  Iíve run into wandering presenters many times who canít seem to figure out why walking the mic right in front of a speaker is bad.  Wired mics tend to stay where you leave them.

Hope this helps!

Hi
I mix for 4 bands who each have their own PA systems and the lead vocalist for 3 of em all use a wireless SM58. And all of them sound uninspiring and give me feedback problems that I just don't have with wired 58s. Plus I was watching another sound guy struggle with a crap-sounding wireless 58 that he swapped out at intermission with a wired 58 that sounded much better.

Now I realize I am only a mere weekend warrior, but I've been a weekend warrior for a long time and I am definitely noticing a pattern here. I would like to hear from anyone who has noticed the same issues and what - if anything - you did to address the problem. Singers are telling me they spent stupid money for their wireless systems and I don't want to tell them that a 99 dollar wired mic is the solution if it isn't.
Thank you
Phil
