The LAMC Celebrates Its Quinceañera

Five Easy Pieces: Miking Drums with a Shure SM27

Editors’ Note: For many years, one of Shure’s corporate missions has been to further music education around the globe.  But our commitment extends far beyond contests such as Fantastic Scholastic (now in its ninth year), where college teams compete for a valuable mic locker.   It often starts with a much younger audience and here’s why: […]
