Very impressive quality on the mic. I own this whereas many others prefer the SM58. They are just plain wrong. This one is a little more expensive and with good reasoning. This isn't your average microphone...it's a little smarter. Works beautifully in comparison to any other mic I've used. Completely, utterly perfect for the price. The tone quality is astounding considering it's under 200 bucks. Great buy...recommended for every singer!

    Comments about Shure Beta 58A Mic:

    I just bought this microphone and had to write a review. I very rarely write reviews of products unless the product was exceptionally good, or overall just terrible. After trying out this mic, I felt the need to write a review to hopefully help someone who is maybe going through the same dilemma as I was.

    I've been using the low end Berhinger XM8500 for years. For the money, that mic is probably reasonable, and from the reviews on it I know many people swear by it. I've always thought my vocals were pretty good, but lately I was doubting my ability to sing clearly and hit the right pitches correctly. Everything has been sounding really muddy and just not overall not exciting. We upgraded our PA, and the sound was better but still just sort of mumbled all together and the words weren't crisp and clear. I finally researched some mics and decided to pull the trigger on this bad boy. The 700% increase in price when compared to my existing microphone definitely made me hesitant to fund this purchase. However, as soon as I plugged it into the PA and performed a few songs, I was seriously blown away. This thing is absolutely incredible and has really brought back my vocal confidence. I can't believe the difference between this and my old mic. It is seriously night and day. I'm incredibly excited to gig with this microphone. This crispness and receptiveness to capture your true voice is unbelievable. I really cannot say enough about this mic. I have never used the SM58 so I cannot make that comparison. I felt like if I was going to invest the money for the 58 I might as well take the leap and try out the Beta. I own tons of music equipment, so much that my wife thinks I'm crazy and have a problem. But this is one of those purchases I'll never, ever regret. My only regret is that I didn't upgrade to a good Shure microphone years ago. I feel like my vocal potential in my gigging has been limited because of that decision. I'm just glad I finally upgraded.

            Comments about Shure Beta 58A Mic:

            I bought this mic for the singer in my current project. She is an alto R&B/rock singer. I felt that based on my research it would be a good fit for her vocals. I took this mic to my other project to try it out. I substituted it for my standard SM58. I do death/thrash metal. I thought this mic would be wasted on me, but I have never sounded better. This mic is very responsive but is not as conducive to death metal techniques. I would need to use way more compression for the proximity effect to get close to it like I do with the standard SM58. That said, I stood off it about 4 to 6 inches for the screaming and it sounded not too bad. The higher pitched stuff came across great at that distance but more compression would be needed for growling up close. For all the singing I did, I felt startled at the presence it gave me. It cut right through a ridiculously thick mix even though my singing voice is weaker than a newborn kitten's meow. I know it will be great for better singers than me, but I want one for myself now.

              have used an sm58 since the 70's and this is the only mic that tops it. EXTREMELY durable and an extra kick of output.

              Crystal Clear Vocals!

              By ROBERT LISANTI

              from Peekskill, NY

              Comments about Shure Beta 58A Mic:

              So I read alot of reviews first before I even thought of watching demos and youtube reviews for this mic, I already own the SM58 for around 3 yrs now and I love it, but since I got a Gift card for the holidays I wanted a slight upgrade, all I can say is that this Mic is much clearer and crystal clear, everything is more pronounced and distinct. I do alot of home recording and this mic is highly recommended for recording, you dont always need a "Condensor" mic to get great sound just do some tweaking and you will get a great recording!
