Overview

The Shure SM48-LC Microphone offers many of the same qualities as the famous SM58 but at a lower price. This unidirectional dynamic mic is designed for professional sound reinforcement, studio recording, and broadcasting. It maintains a true cardioid pattern throughout its frequency range, ensuring high gain before feedback and rejection of off-axis sound. Frequency response is tailored for vocals with a presence rise in the midrange to brighten performance. A low-frequency roll-off is provided for controlling proximity effect. A shock-mounted cartridge, steel mesh grille, and an integral pop filter make the Shure SM48 tough and resistant to handling noise.

Features
  • Cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis sound and provides superior gain before feedback
  • Frequency response tailored for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass rolloff to control proximity effect
  • Shock-mounted cartridge for exceptional ruggedness and reduced handling noise
  • Built-in "pop" filter that reduces explosive breath sounds and wind noise
  • Supplied stand adapter and carrying/storage bag
  • Legendary Shure quality and ruggedness

A Good Mic For The Price

By William Peters

from New Port Richey, FL

I picked this mic up on sale. It works well but distorts if you get too close & too loud. They claim it's unidirectional but it really doesn't pick up that well from the sides. For the price I paid, you really can't beat it.

Better than nothing...

By Aaron Mevis

from Ohio

I got a great sale price on the SM48-LC in-store, but it's still barely worth it. The sound is extremely dull, even with a nice preamp (unusable with my interface's low-quality preamp). Needs heavy EQ to brighten the sound. The mic feels durable. It's heavy steel and well-put together like anything I'd expect from Shure. Looks sexy. I liked the accessories it came with: nice mic clip, cable tie and mic pouch. Save your money and buy an SM58. They're that much better than this.

Great for drummer/singer!!!!!!

By Lucas Pike

from Harrodsburg KY

My band purchased this mic a little under a month ago and i love it the sensitivity is perfect for a drummer/singer like my self the sentive mic allows me to sit a good distance away and still be picked up loud and clear so the mic dosent mess with my drumming... the down side is that also due to the sensitivity it squells if your (screamer) vocalist holds it around the top as i'v noticed most of them do but thats why i use it.

cheap and useful

By Doogie

from ca

Not as good as SM58, but if you need a cheap durable mic this is the best. I bought it for spoken word applications, it works fine for this but I don't plan on doing any serious vocal work. Get the SM58 if you can for a good all purpose mic. But if you know you only need it for speech, then save the money and buy the SM48.

I purchased this mic and it is great. I use it to sing in my church choir and for rehearsals, if you are looking for a product that will get the job done and save money this is the one to buy. God bless.

Superior for the money

By 'Vid

from Pasadena, CA

I bought a Shure SMS48 back in the '90's and it has proven itself an ideal performer for nearly TWO DECADES. My backing vocals sound clean, natural and loud, and I don't have to sweat getting an expensive mic lost or stolen. It's nearly half the price of a 58 and delivers 9/10ths of the performance. I'll admit 58's have a little something extra, but I detect very little difference between the two IMHO. For my harmonies and honky tonk stage chatter, the 48 is a perfect mic for the road. Thanks to Shure for another great product.
