I needed this for vocals, and is very usable. The mic stand is a little on the thin side. This isn't a big deal but its a little less secure because of that, but mostly because I use a Hercules iPad clip, and its too thin for the clip to attach to the stand. Otherwise its fine. The cable is good quality, I've had it for a year now and its still working fine. The microphone is still in great condition also. For those who haven't tried a 57 before they're worth getting. they're strong and can be used from micing amps all the way to rock vocals and everything in-between . they can take a few drops too. always have one in your bag
The SM58 has been an industry standard for as long as I can remember. I bought my last one over 20 years ago and it only failed because some Dim-Witted punter spilt beer all over it! My old SM-58 worked without fault right to the end and that must be an indication of how well the SM-58 is made. 20+ years; now that's what I call a field report :-) I've lost count of how many times the microphone ended up on the floor because a stand got accidentally kicked over - but never a hick up.
The only difference with the new mic. is that its is all shiny and 'new looking' otherwise it sounds just the same. A great microphone for backing vocals, which is what I mainly sing. I know lead vocalists tend to think they need something more exotic but honestly the SM-58 will do everything a vocalist could ask of it in a live situation and it has the benefit of being able to withstand the knocks and abuse which are part if gigging.
I bought the SM-58 with the Millenium MS-2005 stand and sssnake cable as a package and Thomann did a fantastic deal on package. Once again the Sales Team at Thomann beat the competition on price.
