The Shure SM58 has been the "go-to" microphone for musicians, producers, and sound engineers around the world for more than 40 years running. No other mic in your arsenal can match its legendary reputation for great sound and rugged dependability. With a Shure SM58 on the stage, you can forget about the microphone and concentrate on your performance.
Shure's SM58 features specially tuned mid-range response for a boosted 'presence peak' in your vocal tracks. While some mics let vocals get lost the Shure SM58 cuts through and positions the singer right out in front. You will gain a crisp focus that separates the professionals from the hobbyists.
To quote Sure: "The SM58's tank like durability has legendary status, you'll be a part of that legend as you grasp the perfectly balanced die-cast metal handle and raise the rigid steel mesh grille up to your lips. It's hard not to feel the weight of all that music history when you realize your favorite artists hefted that same handle, delivering their lyrics through that same mesh grille."
