    Our Radioshack mics go to the mic abusers, and they are switchable. We don't like mic abusers.

    We don't own Radioshack mics, if you get rid of those Shure's you won't have to worry about them going to shit the first time someone drops them :lol:

    It's to hold the XLR in when they swing it by the cord like 90% of metalcore singers do. If you've ever seen an sm57 fly out into the crowd at 100mph because of a careless singer you'd duct tape that sucker too.

    I only use the SM57's for instrument mic'ing.

    Doesn't matter what mic. They all hurt if the cable comes out and it flies off.

    Reminds me when I made a joke and actually taped a mic and doubled back so there actually was the adhesive part outside.

    I'm pretty positive that neither a mic or a cord are components for a bolo.
    It wouldn't need to come apart to jack someones grill in the front row either.:wallbash:

    So the tape is really a futile preventative measure, for careless vocalists, to try and keep from getting their grill knocked in by the boyfriend of the chick with the big goose egg on her forehead?

    (And no, I wouldn't duct tape the mic. I'd find a different band, or give more time to the ones who respect my gear.)
