Shure Incorporated in Niles, Ill., reports that customs officials in Peru and Paraguay recently confiscated thousands of counterfeit Shure microphones. The actions were the result of ongoing investigations by Shure representatives in both countries, in cooperation with local customs and law enforcement agencies. The seized products will be destroyed under the supervision of customs agents.

In Peru, customs officials seized 2,303 counterfeit Shure microphones as the products were being imported into the country. The microphones included models C606, SM58, and PG58. Also confiscated were 1,594 cables and several thousand accessories, user guides, and product cartons, all branded with the Shure trademark. Fabi Export and Import, a company that is not an authorized Shure distributor or reseller, was importing the products.

In Paraguay, a delegation of officials from the customs authority raided a number of resellers in Ciudad del Este, including Music Shop, Music Brasil SA, and Musical World. Counterfeit products seized included SM57, SM58, Beta57A, and Beta58A microphones as well as PGX Digital Wireless components.

“Shure continues to take vigorous action against counterfeiters worldwide,” says Mark Humrichouser, General Manager for the Shure Americas Business Unit. “We are committed to challenging the sale of counterfeit Shure products, not only to protect the interests of Shure and our distribution partners, but to ensure that consumers receive authentic products with the performance and quality for which Shure is famous.”
