OVERVIEW

Rugged, affordable and clear.

The SM48 unidirectional dynamic microphone is a great performance microphone. It maintains a true cardioid pattern throughout its frequency range, ensuring high gain before feedback and rejection of off-axis sound.

The tailored frequency response is ideal for lead vocals, backup vocals, and spoken word applications. A presence rise brightens mid-range performance, and a low frequency roll off controls proximity effect.

The SM48 includes a shock-mounted cartridge, a steel mesh grille, and an integral "pop" filter.

FEATURES
  • Cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis sound and provides superior gain before feedback
  • Frequency response tailored for vocals, with brightened mid-range 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
  • Lockable On/Off switch (Model SM48S only)

Order today and make sure your voice is heard.

      Comments about Shure SM48 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      Shure SM48 is such an affordable microphone. I ordered the white version and I just love the way it looks. The sound quality is decent(clear and crisp) for vocal consider the price. I would recommend this mic to anybody who is in a tight budget. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 stars is because I wish this mic is a bit longer, because most of the Shure microphone is 1 - 2" longer.

        Comments about Shure SM48 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        I needed practice mikes for my band but didn't want to spend a lot... I liked using my SM58 but too pricy to get a few more... I had a SM48 years ago and when I saw the white cases I was hooked... I know Shure would not disappoint me and ordered 2... When I received it, I was blown away by the looks and impressed by the sound... I did increase the mid range as I read someone suggested.... I can see my SM48s to be used in live performances.... I ordered 1 more..... Thank you Shure for a great product!!!

          The Shure SM48 microphone will not let you down at any venue you us it in. Musician's Friend has all the Shure brand microphones you need for any application. The SM48 is what I need and the price was what I needed also.

          Close enough to a 58 for gigging

                I bought 2 of these when they were the stupid deal and cheap enough to take a chance. In a quick comparison to a 58 I couldn't hear any difference, I'm sure something is different but they are good enough for gigging.
