You night want to be a bit more specific with your needs Darren. Eg: budget, make, what it's for etc

One? We have dozens, all with XLR connectors, not surprisingly ;) :)

On a serious note, as Darren has indicated - give us an idea of your budget, and your typical applications, and you'll get loads of recommendations. Alternatively have a search, as microphones are a popular topic that often get discussed.

Hi yes sorry, I'm looking for a second hand microphone to use as a back-up system. Budget 40 max, just need one that works.

I need to use for announcements etc, whilst DJing at weddings. Will need to plug into the xlr point on my mixer.

Buy a new Sennheiser 815 from DV247.com - its in budget and reliable and reasonable quality.

Or a Shure PG58 - about 40, robust and not bad sounding.

I'm a senny man myself, but Shure are top notch too.

For a very small budget such as that, I'd agree you can't get better than a Shure PG or an entry level Senny.

Agreed. Personally, I'd go for an 825 in preference to an 815, but not sure of prices.

Thanks for all your suggestions I will def look into them.

Can I ask what is the SHURE C606 or is it C607, is it any good?

Okay your budget is 40 which is really low for a good mic.

If you want my proper advice get a minimum of a Sennheiser 835s (switched if for dj use straight 835 if for vocal work).

They are what I use as spares and for X Factor style talent nights we do at a Casino. They are good entry level mic (and I mean entry level to professional audio).

If you can only push to 40 get the Senny 815 or the Shure PG that was suggested.

I use a Shure PG58 (recommended on this forum I believe) in my main rig and it sounds fine for DJ work, announcements etc

it comes in XLR and jack versions.

The mic will be used as a back-up to the wharfedale wireless mic system I have.
