OVERVIEW

One of the world's most popular vocal mics.

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

My SM58 is over 30 years old and been through all those years of working abuse and still works great! I needed another mic, so of course, I got another SM58. Looks great, sounds great and I am sure (SHURE) it's going to last a long, long time!

I bought one of these SM 58 microphones, even though I don?t think they sound near as good as an EV N/D767a, Audix OM5 or even a Shure Beta 58a. I bought the SM58 because I?m sick and tired of getting flack from sound guys at a gig when I tell them I want to use my own microphone. I don?t like putting my mouth on a microphone that may have been used by someone that was sick with a cold or something. Anyway, I think all these sound guys are really used to the SM58 and have become too lazy to re-adust the settings on their sound board. It would just be sooooooooo much more work for them if they had tweak a knob. Poor guys. Because they are lazy, I had to buy a SM58. A microphone that sounds like a blanket is over it. The SM58 is way overrated. I don?t care how legendary it is considered. It does not sound as good as other microphones. Take your best microphone and put a heavy beach towel over it, if you want it to sound like an SM58.

Still great after all these years

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

I have to respectfully disagree with my fellow Orlando, Fl. reviewer down from me. I too have used the SM58s and SM57s for almost 40 years for live work and I still love them. True that there are better mics today in terms or texture or sound but the SMs have been around for this long because they are pure, rugged, cheap and they just always work. I blow harmonica and sing lead with a 58 and have been for almost 40 years. I do use other mics for my harp (green bullet etc) and then I mic my harp amps (Fender bassman & Fender Blues DeVille) with SM57s,but always have a 58 on the stand waiting for the vocals. The SM58 & SM57 are an industry standard and we have somewhere around 30+ SM57s & SM58s in our rehersal studio and road cases. Young and upcomming bands, please grab the SMs when you can afford to and keep them. You'll come back to them time and time again I promise.Some of my mics have been with me since the 70s and 80s. I'll write them in a will for my kids LOL.

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

I replaced my old one (from the 70's) not because it failed, but only because it started smelling a little funny. Being on the road for that long might have something to do with it .. LOL
Can't go wrong with a 58. Best live vox mic on the market ...
I've never had one fail on me yet. Being a drummer, the mic sometimes gets in the way and takes a good shot once in awhile. Still performes as good as always ...
You can't find a better mic for the price ... trust me!

Great mic

By Perry Stotts

from Orem, UT

Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

I've had this microphone for a couple of years now, and it is definitely a great microphone for its price. I record guitar and vocals, plus mandolin and some percussion (tambourine, shaker, etc.) with it in my makeshift studio at home and have been very pleased with it. If you would like to hear a sample of how it sounds, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eROfig4Spc.

      Comments about Shure SM58 Mic:

      I had a couple Peavey Mics for about 30 years and they performed well for me. When I bought two new mics, I got the Seinheiser 845 mics. They sounded good, but I had to keep my mouth on the mics for the sound to come through. Then, I got a couple Shure SM58 mics based on suggestions from others. The Shure SM58 mics sound good and have a larger pickup range. This makes my voice come through the mix without yelling. This is a very good mic.
