Shure SM58 Dynamic Vocal Microphone
The Standard for Dynamic Vocal Mics
If you’ve ever heard someone sing or speak into a live microphone, there’s an excellent chance it was an SM58. Rock stars. Pop idols. Comedians. Presidents. Popes. Immortal words have passed through its iconic grille for generations. And with engineering and durability that set the world standard, it’s sure to keep turning up at legendary performances.
You'll find multiple SM58s in most any studio or live music venue - no doubt you've heard of them. The SM58's frequency response is tailored for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass rolloff. The uniform cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source and minimizes background noise, which is ideal for vocals, especially in live situations where background noise is substantial.
The microphone's pneumatic shock-mount system cuts down handling noise, making it a great choice for handheld vocals, and the built-in wind/pop filter helps keep things in check.
The dark gray, enamel-painted, die-cast metal case has legendary looks and - paired with the mesh grille - legendary toughness.
WHY IT’S BETTER
Roll with no shake or rattle
Handling noise gets absorbed by the pneumatic shock mount, keeping the sound free of vibration.
Screen out unwanted air
When wind and plosives try to take over, the spherical mesh grille and built-in pop filter keep them out of the mix.
Rugged for the road ahead
Taking the show on tour? The mic’s durable construction and the break-resistant stand adapter keep the SM58 going strong through the toughest performances.
