OVERVIEW

Update of the classic vocal mic with extras.

If you want your vocals to be heard, the Shure Beta 58A Mic is built to make it happen. It's a high-output, supercardioid dynamic microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. This has made it a leading choice among vocalists and touring musicians worldwide. This package includes a Beta58A, a tripod mic boom stand and a 20' XLR to XLR cable.

The Beta 58A maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range (50Hz-16kHz) and a shaped frequency response that is ideal for close-up vocals. Its neodymium magnet provides high sensitivity and output. The superb performance of this microphone is not affected by rough handling because of its rugged construction, proven pneumatic shockmount system, and hardened steel mesh grille. So whether you hold it in your hand or mount in on a stand, you'll get the kind of sound you planned.

FEATURES
  • Frequency response tailored for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass roll-off to control proximity effect
  • Uniform supercardioid pattern for high gain before feedback and superior rejection of off-axis sound
  • Neodymium magnet for high signal-to-noise output
  • Hardened steel mesh grille that resists wear and abuse
  • Advanced pneumatic shock mount system that minimizes transmission of mechanical noise and vibration
  • Minimally effected by varying load impedance
  • Legendary Shure quality and reliability
  • Recommended for live vocals and podcast/voiceovers

    Comments about Shure Beta 58A, Stand & Cable Package:

    I was upgrading to a Shure Beta 58A from a Shure SM 58S anyway so why not spend slightly more for the bundle. I changed to the Beta 58A mic because it has higher output and makes my voice sound clearer/cleaner during close up vocals versus the SM 58S. The mic stand included with this bundle is worth the extra purchase price by itself as it is sturdy and it is adjustable enough to allow for any vocal or instrument/amp mic positioning. The mic cable is fairly cheap but is OK to keep for a spare to use in an emergency. Bottom line... If you want/need the Beta 58A mic spring the extra cash and purchase the bundle.

              Comments about Shure Beta 58A, Stand & Cable Package:

              Shure Beta 58 mic is a widely known and used industry standard. I purchased the Beta 58 as a replacement for 1 of many SM 58's I use. The one major advantage is the higher output which provides a little extra consideration in the live sound mix. The deal I got was for the combination of Beta 58, a mic stand, and 20 foot cable was a bargain.

                  Comments about Shure Beta 58A, Stand & Cable Package:

                  I use this for home recording and small gigs. The mic is great and goes well with my voice. The stand is doable. I might try some very thin rubber washers at a couple of joints, but as it is, I can get it to securely hold the Shure mic in one place. The cable has an extremely loose fit into the mic. Not sure that I would use the cable as my performance cable. But overall, getting a decent stand and this mic together at this price is a good deal.

                    Comments about Shure Beta 58A, Stand & Cable Package:

                    I wanted the Beta 58 already, and was surprised that even though they always include the worst quality junk as add-ons, I mean, for ten more $$, a stand and cable?? I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED! The stand is laughable, tilts to one side about 10 degrees off plumb and I am quite sure the knob will be stripped within 5 to 10 uses. And the cable fit and quality is just horrible, but hey, I knew what I was getting, so we sit around in the rehearsal room and goof on the stand and that's worth a good ten $$. If the Beta is $X and the package is $X plus ten $$, get it by all means!! Love the mic, but realize that's really all you're getting plus a few laughs.

                            Can't beat Shure mics for price and performance. The stand is light but functional. I and my band have had nothing but trouble from the musicians gear cheap cables. They seem to be machined too small and wobble around and produce garbled or no connection. I would never recommend these cables to anyone.

                                    You can't go wrong with this microphone, it is widely held as a very solid performance mic.

                                    The cable and the stand that came with it aren't the best quality, but for the 10 extra clams in cost over just the mic itself, I think it was worth the extra.

                                    Arrived in 3 days to Hawaii in time to host an acoustic night. Makes me wonder why 2nd day air usually takes over a week. My experience placing my order on the phone with Musicians Friend was enough to turn me into a loyal customer, its like, well, having a knowledgeable Musician friend! Bought this set up awhile back from a different site, needed another for a new gig hosting Open mic night and my only complaint is that this mic stand is a bit lighter weight and less sturdy.

                                      Twice as loud and clear as any other vocal mic I've tried. I am blown away at the quality and performance of this mic. For my jams, this is a MUST HAVE!

                                      The mike is fantastic. Passed on M.F. warranty as I figure you can just replace the cartridge if something goes wrong. Stand looks "house brand" and one leg swings freer than the others. It's "O.K." but not "great," like the mike.
