Lives for gear
PG81s are not terrible at all. They sound pretty much in line with how much they cost. That said, they are grainier and not as "pingy" as SM81s. I love me some SM81s, though.

The Shure PG series in general is widely hated because of it's budget status.... I did find the PG56 tom mics and the PG52 kick mic to be decent. Not great, but decent. The PG57 is a piece of **** though. I would say the only PG series mic I wouldn't mind owning is the PG81.
