Overview

The Shure SM58 mic is legendary for its uncanny ability to withstand abuse that would destroy any other microphone. The Shure SM58 has not only helped to define the sound of rock vocals on stage, it's also been used as a hammer to build stages and gone on to perform flawlessly later at the gig. Using a club's house system? You'll be singing through an SM58. And in the studio? Daniel Lanois always uses the SM58 or Beta 58 on Bono's vocals.

The Shure SM58 mic is world-renowned for its distinctive upper-midrange presence peak that ensures an intelligible, lively sound. Perfectly fits a performer's hand, balanced for total comfort during long gigs. Frequency response is a smooth, vocal-tailored 50Hz-15kHz, and the price is a bargain considering its life expectancy.

Features
  • Performance tested, industry standard
  • Uniform cardioid pick-up pattern for maximum gain before feedback and excellent rejection of off-axis sound
  • Tailored frequency response specifically shaped for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass roll off to control proximity effect
  • Advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes transmission of mechanical noise and vibration
  • Steel-mesh grille and enamel-coated metal construction resist wear and abuse
  • Effective built in pop-filter reduces undesirable wind and breathe noise
  • Furnished with zippered storage bag and break-resistant stand adapter
  • Extremely durable under the heaviest use

    Polarity: Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3

This is a must have mic for any active musician. This mic is excellent for stage use, but it is also very useful in a studio or project studio. This mic has been my main stage mic for over 15 years. The SM58 is known to be great for live use but it is also great to use on vocal recordings. The SM58 is also a great mic to use on a snare drum (especially since it is durable). The SM58 is built tough enough to stand up against years of abuse. If you play live you need to have this mic.

This thing has been the standard for so long. Now there are a lot of mics in the same price range that naturally try to improve on that benchmark. And they are better. The president uses a 57. Does that make it the best vocal speech mic? No, although the 57 is good for just about everything else. The 58 was originally part of a sound system that wasn't tuned quite right, so they compensated by giving the mic an eq scoop. Some people say they like the eq of the 58, but often the house eq will have a happy face eq curve to make up for the increased mids. The problem is, that now, with so many mics that are better than the 58, one doesn't stand out as a new stadard. But watch the latest performances of bands today. unless they are using a house system, or they don't care much for details, you will see a lot less people using the 58. One that I like is the EV N/D267a. Good clean sound, strong signal, and better feedback control. So search around and see what else is out there before you buy the same boring standard equipment.

A must have mic for live use

THE mic

By Scott

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

If you are an active gigger, or recording artist, there is no doubt you've run across at least one of these mics. Extremely cheap, extremely reliable, and great sounding. Although this is mainly a vocal mic, i have used it for instruments, even drums, and gotten an acceptable sound(although we later layered the recordings). If you have big bucks, i would not recommend this mic, because there are many other expensive mics that would do vocals much better. However if you are a low budget musician such as myself, then i would highly recommend this mic for vocals, and as a last resort for instruments, although i would not recommend it if it can be avoided. Happy Rocking!

Still the best

By Backdrop Guitarist

from Dalls, TX

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

I've had my SM58 for a few weeks now, and I don't know why I didn't have one sooner. When playing with my band, the vocals are clear, even though we're loud in a tiny little room. As far as live performance goes, you can't get any better than this in the price range.

Simply the best

By brian817

from Ft. Worth, TX

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

The Shure SM58 microphone is the most widely used microphone for vocals in any situation. This mic is always the first choice for vocals, but also sounds good on instruments, especially acoustic instruments like 6 or 12 string guitars and certain drums. The SM58 is a workhorse and built to hold up over years and years of constant use. It's simple to set up for live or recording use and so easy to afford.

Killer Sound, not so killer price

By IotaPhi823

from Undisclosed

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

I just bought the SM58 Mic because I needed a new dynamic mic and i had a very tight budget. The person who helped me out told me that I would be 100% pleased with the mic and it sounds as great as its higher priced couterparts. At first I was sceptical But after getting home and plugging it into my trusy peavey I was blown away. This Mic has a very crisp clear high end sound. Buy it it's totally worth it.

The Best.

By Young'n

from Mastic, NY

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

This microphone is one of the best microphones I've ever used. Although the price is a little high it's still worth it. It's so clear to see why this microphone has been the industry standard for years.

BAD REPUTATION

By Jizzy

from St.louis

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

It's the industry standard, and there's a reason for that. Yes there are other mics that cost more or whatever, but I can guarantee you, no matter where you play at, or who you play with, everyone will respect this mic, and know that you take your craft seriously. And don't be fooled by the ranting about this being a "LIVE" mic, it can hold its own in the studio too, in fact it may out perform a "cheaper" brand condenser. You can't go wrong with buying this mic.

Best Mic IMO

By Mike

from Florida

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

I purchased the Shure SM58 Mic with the intention of another cheap microphone, but i was wrong! this Mic can withstand a lot of abuse even though its accidental and it still sounds brand new every time i use it i recommend this beautiful Mic for any vocalist or for use on the snare drum. it was worth every penny, also great for live shows and band practice and recording in a studio SM58 #1.
