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

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.

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 mics at a great price. I'm only rating a 4 because I prefer an on/off switch on the actual mic (altho' I realize not everyone wants/needs that option.

            This is a great mic to have around. Good performing, cardiod pattern. I keep a couple of these around as spares in case I need extra mics.
