Dynamic Vocal Microphone with Switch
With its frequency response optimised for vocals and the warm, clear sound, the SM58 is the legend among vocal microphones worldwide.
The Shure SM58 is a dynamic microphone for lead and back-up vocals during live performances, professional audio amplification and studio recordings. An integrated, extremely effective filter prevents breathing and wind noise, while the cardioid directivity isolates the signal source and reduces unwanted background noise.
The robust design, the tried and tested shock absorber system, and the steel mesh grille ensure that the SM58 always works reliably even in the rough and tumble of everyday stage life. Whether in the open or in a hall, for singing or speaking - the SM58 has been the undisputed number one among professionals all over the world for decades.

In the spotlight
Microphones are more or less sensitive to sounds arriving from different angles. This directional sensitivity is an important characteristic of the microphone and falls within a set category of polar patterns. Different polar patterns are adapted to different recording or live sources. Singers naturally prefer microphones that focus on their voice and suppress background noise as much as possible. Cardioid microphones, which derive their name from their heart-shaped polar pattern and by definition favour sound sources coming from the front, are ideal for this purpose – especially since they also suppress unwanted noises coming from the microphones’ sides or rear, thus limiting feedback issues in the process.
