Harris. “I have been using Shure since the day I fell in love with music. You can’t separate the microphones from the life of a musician. All my recording studios are equipped with various Shure products and I have used them in all my projects and albums. When I put a Shure microphone in front of instruments like a violin, saxophone and guitar I can hear the natural character of the instrument. It is the real sound I have mixed in the recording studio that can be heard in any consumer system. I see Shure products commonly used amongst performers across the music industry, it has become cult product. In regards to the Shure wireless products, a performer can run and dance around the stage without worrying about wires and other accessories and they have amazing receivers and transmitters which make us perform well. Shure is the only brand I trust when it comes to performance and recording, it is a representation of durability and reliability. The legendary SM58 and I are inseparable.”
