    Pulpit Mic FMR500c Earthworks

    Posted by Bob Decker on Mar 15th 2019

    After inquiring about a new pulpit mic for our church and giving much thought to our needs Ryan made this suggestion of the FMR500C...I am so glad he did! I installed it after it was received and it works wonderful... Sound clarity is far superior to the other top brand mic that the circuit board went out on us... but it served its time. Thanks for the fast shipping and once again the advice received always on products!
