Hi Vern

How would you describe the difference between the sound of your setup and a SM58?

So if these rather inexpensive and light weight systems work well for playing the chromatic clean then why does anybody go for the bulky and more costly system?

It has a clean response and is so tiny that you can completely enclose it in your hand where it is completely responsive to cupping effects.  The 1/8” cable exits your cup between your fingers. It uses a button battery that lasts for many hours IF you remember to turn it off. It needs some adapters to go from 1/8” plug to 1/4” plug or XLR.  I understand that Radio Shack may have discontinued it but it is available on ebay for as little as $10.
