Unexpected outing for an Shure SM58S
Robert8105, 15.11.2015
I've been reading about this legendry microphone for years, particularly as a mainstay of rock bands. I gave in and bought just one even though my small stable of microphones never go near rock bands although some do service in recording choirs.
Upon receipt, I examined it and tried the switch and thought that it seemed very slack however how could I justify sending it back as I had only one SM58S so no comparisons were possible. Not fazed by this possible problem, my SM58S had a somewhat unexpected first outing that is as a comperes' microphone on a Quiz Night. I was the Quizmaster and it performed faultlessly. That switch design was almost certainly meant to be slack as it switched effortlessly between on and off between questions.
Giving the microphone appropriate equalisation via the mixer it gave my voice a flattering good cadence. Not only that; when I gave our honoured guest a stint on reading the political questions selection, (she being our local MP) the SM58S gave her voice the same accurate projection as it did of mine.
Of note was that feedback was minimal or nonexistent which was surprising as the speakers were close by. Perhaps all SM58S users have known that for years.
Finally and of equal importance is to mention the shape and design. Again I had some pre-conceived idea when I first took it out of the box; too short and sloping grip not right ? How wrong could I be ! As soon as it was coupled to a XLR cable the feel of the SM58S was just right both in weight and design. Its apparent shortness (compared with some more recent designs) was just an absolute boon to an amateur quizmaster, such as myself, who has to hold a microphone for couple of hours in a crowded room where questions are read and an appropriate pause is the norm. I say, this bearing in mind that it is not appropriate at such events to stay in one place using a stand.
This microphone is one I highly recommend for all these reasons some of which were not anticipated.

What?s not to like?! Best microphone
BarnabyR, 11.10.2017
The Shure SM58s is a near legendary bit of kit, robust, well made, excellent materials, giving a great sound quality, that is more than capable of withstanding heavy gigging. I suspect, come the nuclear apocalypse, these microphones, along with cockroaches will be the last thing operating.

Great quality mic for a great price
Mari-Ann, 13.06.2020
There are better mics out there, but if you want performance / live gig quality with a clean sound, I reckon this mic is the best fo the buck. It is also highly robust in design and construction so that it will sustain the knocks and bumps on the road

A classic
Metall0, 05.06.2020
What else can be said about the SM58? rugged and responsive. I bought it as the first mike for a student to be used on the stage and it has lived to the expectations.

Very decent microphone for a small price
BPCMediaTeam, 24.02.2020
Bought and used already a few of those mics and after all this time I am still very pleased with their quality for this small price.

Pro:
- Good price
- Very decent sound for an dynamic mic
- Comes with bag and mic stand head

Cons:
The switch is from poor quality. A very gentle touch of it can turn the mic of (while in use) which is not something you want to happen during a live event/concert

SM58, needs no further introduction...
Denmus, 18.06.2020
It's an SM58, the best live mic ever and still is as far as I'm concerned. It's a workhorse and probably the only mic that can handle the dreaded mic drop (just don't!!!)
Nuff said..

SM58 with a switch - You can't go wrong
Ruaille, 21.08.2019
I use this for gigging with several bands in pubs, clubs and theatres as well as for recording vocals in a pinch.

It is beautifully clear and very durable. A big pro is the switch, I had a switch-less SM58 before and I appreciate being able to turn off this mic from the stage. At this price, there are no cons.

Built like a tank
dooq, 02.11.2017
I have full confidence this mic can be hung upside down from a crane and used as a bulldozer!! Only kidding! What I'm trying to say is it's built like a tank and feels quite weighty and solid in the hand.

Good performance however, I found it to be at tad too directional for my liking (in that if you're slightly off-axis there's quite a noticeable drop in sound level). Maybe this was just the way our speakers were using the mic.

Anyway, overall a very good purchase and solid performance from a respectable brand.

Probably Best Budget Mic
sQuall, 22.02.2017
Comes in a very appealing box which contains a manual, a "SHURE" sticker and a leather (or leatherette) zip bag for the mic storage/transportation.
I genuinely like the look, the weight, and the on/off button.
I have specifically chosen a dynamic microphone as I have been intending to record various types of music on all sorts of instruments in my home studio with a very tight budget. Yet, at the very beginning was quite confident there will not be a need to change/upgrade this particular mic, as this is practically a high-end one for this type of price range.
No need to mention the legendary brand and the model itself which have definitely have aided and proven the reputation of the product.

The industry standard for a good reason.
El Pipita, 15.11.2018
This mic has been the industry standard for years, so there's not much else to be said about it.

I got the added switch option for a few euros more as a personal preference, and I like have the extra option of muting the mic by hand instead of having to use the desk all the time.

Super Mic !!!
Kay G., 30.03.2014
Actually, there is the Shure SM 58 is not much to say. But perhaps I find it still a thing . First thomann times to processing and design: Who has Shure microphones often in use , already knows since a little and know that Shure mics are extremely well made. They have a rigid metal case, also the basket is sufficiently stable - but only as long as you the mic thomann not grossly abused (ie litters through the sample room or the studio when it did not work again : D) . The supply of spare parts is really good - if so times but such a situation has occurred , there's simply a replacement basket (even though an imitation but thomann terms of quality not inferior Basket of Thon ) .

The sound is also simple Shure typical: Warm, clear, and just brilliant . In plain English: Simply a great sound ! More there to not to say. Also about the features occurs to me not so much : the switch have to stop just like it or not, I thomann find him good, he even is very easy to see who does not want , so no need to take .

Well, I also find that an original clip and an original bag is it. Who has his mic anyway in flight cases for which the bag is not so important but just when thomann you only have a few mics in use , so a feature is really good.

All in all a SUPER Mic ! !

Use this all the time!
Pedal Projects, 27.03.2018
I'm a live sound engineer and I go to all kinds of places and venues where I work. This mic is my personal one and I plug it into the talkback input of the mixer so that I can talk to the stage through the monitors. If the mixer doesn't have a talkback feature, I'll just plug it into a spare input, send to monitors and use the little switch to mute and unmute my voice. It's a classic SM58 so it serves as a spare mic in emergencies. Classic mic that sounds good in all situations!

Not the first I bought, not the last one either...
Rodrigo Viegas, 18.05.2019
I've been working with this brand for a while now and I can say that these microfones are, hands down, the best for the price range.

They are strong, feel great in the hand, have great sound clarity and not to many bass out of the box.. and if you have a way to equalize the sound to your taste, you'll never need aything else for both live concerts or home recording.

if you ask me(not that you did), you won't get it wrong when betting on any of the SM58 models.

I personally like this one because the on and off button makes it easier to simply mute it leave it without fearing some awful feedbacks.

Virtually unbreakeable
Michael M. 6191, 29.04.2016
Been using the shure sm58 for some time now and have come to expect it to function perfectly every time... And it does. I may upgrade the microphone in the future but even if I do I would not get rid of it because although the sm58 design may have been superseded by newer models you know that it will always work when you want it to, and dependability of your gear is crucial when performing live.
