The Shure BETA 58A supercardioid dynamic microphone is designed to deliver top-notch vocal performance in live environments. With its rugged construction and high sensitivity, this mic gives vocalists a tool able to keep up with their passion and energy show after show. The BETA 58A's supercardioid pickup pattern excels at isolating the vocal signal from ambient noise, ensuring a clean capture of the performer's voice.

Smooth Frequency Response Tailored for Vocals

The BETA 58A has a shaped frequency response optimized for close-up vocals, capturing the nuance and detail vocalists work to achieve. Its wide 50Hz to 16kHz frequency range accommodates different vocal styles. The mic's neodymium magnet provides high output, allowing vocals to cut through a mix.

Rugged Build for Reliable Performance

The BETA 58A's rugged components are built to withstand the rigors of touring and frequent use. Its hardened steel mesh grille protects the mic capsule without compromising sensitivity. An innovative pneumatic shock mount reduces handling noise for a clear signal even when the mic is in motion. This durability gives vocalists peace of mind knowing that this mic will perform as needed for shows to come.

Supercardioid Pattern Captures the Source

With its supercardioid polar pattern, the BETA 58A is adept at capturing vocals while excluding ambient sound and feedback. Its pickup pattern maintains directionality throughout its frequency range, focusing on the vocalist and avoiding unwanted noise from the sides and rear. This makes the BETA 58A ideal for live venues where isolation is key.

Versatile and Accessible

The BETA 58A's combination of high output, tailored frequency response, and supercardioid pattern suits it for diverse vocal styles in both live and studio applications. Its familiar shape and size make it easy to grip and position as needed. All of these factors have gained the BETA 58A a reputation as a go-to mic for vocal performance worldwide.
