I have with me one of these mics and could do with knowing its value. Google hasn't brought up much other than that it's "budget", I wouldn't be surprised if the answer's £20. I'm talking about a discontinued mic - not it's more recent relative with a similar name:

I bought five of those about 10 years ago from Sound Control for £80-90 each. I got them in a hurry 'cause they had no 58s in.

So how do they compare to the sm58 Adam?

Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. should they then reject your remarks, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes.

Been a long time since I used them but (tries to explain sounds in words…) a brighter, almost brittle?, slightly raspy sound compared to a 58? I also had a 3800 which was better and "nice and warm" which got lost somewhere. The 3700s were used for vox in a pub/club band and they did work fine. Strange shape to hold, though.
