    Donner has another $1 deal I couldn't pass up. Use code DKM at checkout. Don't have any idea how good of a mic it is but if it sucks it was only $1 right?!? I'm sure it'll do fine for the small rig we use to announce drawing winners and conduct rider meetings at motorcycle events which consists of a 15 watt crate practice amp and what used to be a borrowed mic and xlr to 1/4" cable. But now I have one and it was only $1. Gotta love those Donner $1 deals! https://www.donnerdeal.com/products...797&utm_medium=email&utm_source=shopify_email

    Also, their system seems to only accept one coupon at a time

    You may have to place separate orders. You can place multiple orders of each item though. I ordered multiple packs of the patch cables. All separate orders. The postman literally left a USPS mail basket on my porch the day the cables came. That's a first! Just hung it on the mailbox the next day and they grabbed it.

    On Amazon that mic has four stars with over 3500 reviews, for a buck, it’s worth it to have a junker spare with you in a pinch.

    I do have some old karaoke mics, what are the odds they give passable recording mics? They don't look too different from these and for a dollar, they certainly aren't built to much different standards, either... gotta give that a try. ;)

    That has been my experience with these email code deals.

    How are you folks finding out about these deals? I've been a member or whatever it's called with Donnerdeal.com for several years. I get their ads on my FB page and I get I think some general purpose emails from DD but none of these recent finds.

    I wouldn't waste a dollar on a box full of them, personally. Cheap junk you'd give to a 5 year old to pacify their wanting to play with your SM58.

    No one here is expecting a Neumann for $1. The previous deal, cables, and the capo before that all seem to be fine. I've spent more money than this for things less useful than a mic.

    They're offering these deals in emails. Started getting them after I ordered the capo and USB mic from them not long ago. @Ralph124C41

    Bit the bullet and got the chorus also. I've been wanting a chorus pedal. Look out Paradise City intro here I come!

    If you are looking for a budget mic check out the Pyle mics. They have an awesome SM57 and SM58 clone. I have both and got a 2nd 57 clone.

    I have a Pyle 57 copy also, but I think it sounds bad compared to an actual SM57

    Having five and seven-year-old grandson’s… this is precisely why I ordered one.

    I have both, and I feel that compared to the real thing they suffer significantly by comparison. IMO, the Digital Reference brand sold by MF/GC sound much better, and are definitely more durable than the Pyle’s.

    Just ordered one... the last thing I need is another mic, especially a cheap one, but it's fun to be getting something in the mail for $1!
