    Product Description

    A standard on stages throughout the world for years, the Shure SM58 Dynamic Vocal Microphone offers a carefully tailored frequency rise at about 4,000 Hz for smooth as silk vocals that stand out in the mix. Long associated with its unmistakable sound and unsurpassed reliability, the Shure SM58 Dynamic Vocal Microphone is widely considered the most popular mic in the world.

    Designed for professional vocal use in sound reinforcement and studio recording, the Shure SM58 Dynamic Vocal Microphone utilizes a highly effective, built-in, spherical filter that minimizes wind and breath pop noise while the cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source and minimizes unwanted background noise. The tailored vocal response on the SM58 is a legendary tone that has become a world standard.

    Proximity Effect
    When the sound source is less than 1/4 inch from the microphone, the microphone boosts bass frequencies (by 6 to 10 dB at 100 Hz), creating a warmer and richer bass sound than when farther away. This effect, known as proximity effect, happens only in unidirectional dynamic microphones like the Shure SM58 Vocal Mic. The low-frequency roll-off on the SM58 provides greater control, allowing the user to take full advantage of proximity effect.

    Rugged construction, a proven shock mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the Shure SM58 Dynamic Vocal Microphone will perform consistently. Outdoors or indoors, singing or speech, the Shure SM58 Dynamic Vocal Microphone is the overwhelming choice of professionals worldwide.

    Best quality, affordable mic on the market!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I’ve always wanted an SM-58 due to everyone I know that uses one are very happy with them, and let’s face it: SM-58’s sound the best for live situations, and can hold up well in studio situations. However, I always settled for the cheaper 48’s, as playing in a rowdy Ska/Punk band from my late teens to late 20’s, microphones would take a lot of abuse, especially from the singer of the band and other bands we would play house party gigs with, or bar shows that required the bands to provide a sound system. Now that I no longer play in as rowdy as a band, and I prefer to use my own microphone at any venue I play at (especially during cold and flu season), and sold off all of my PA gear last year, and now needing a system, I decided to finally buy an SM-58. This thing sounds great right out of the box. I have a cheaper PA setup( Gemini AS12P powered speaker and a Harbinger LVL L1202FX mixer) and this mic still sounds amazing running out of that! I’ll be buying another one soon!

    It's a SM58 Industry Standard nuff said.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    It's been around for ages. It worked well then and it works well now. It's as good as you can get for a basic utility voice/instrument mic.

    SM58 is a rock solid and great production mic! The stand and cord work fine. It makes a GREAT DEAL for a keyboard vocalist!

    Consistently perfect performance, rugged construction!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have used the SM58 for live performance for literally 20+ years! It has never failed to perform exactly how it is expected to. I've dropped mine on a cement floor (during tear down) and it did dent the screen a little, but still works great. I have just purchased some for a church that was looking to upgrade!
