Setting the standard

It's no exaggeration to refer Shure's SM Series microphones as the "industry standard." For decades, these microphones have helped artists deliver legendary performances in both live shows and in the studio. And you can count on these rugged microphones to stand the test of time, capturing your artistry for years to come.

Shur SM58

The slight bump in the SM58's frequency response really makes the vocals pop.

It's the one

If you've watched a live performance, you've most likely seen the SM58 vocal microphone in action.Shure engineered the SM58 with a curve that accents the upper midrange and rolls off the lows, so your lead and backup singers will stand out in the mix. The dynamic cardioid design picks up what you want to hear and does a great job of rejecting extraneous noise from other instruments.

Built like a tank

The construction of the SM58 further clarifies the sound — a pneumatic shock-mount system cuts down on handling noise, while the spherical wind and pop filter keep things quiet even at outdoor venues. Reliability? Can't beat this mic — it's proven itself over millions of miles of touring and millions of gigs.

    Why a dynamic mic?

    Dynamic microphones are engineered for the rigors of live performance and life on the road. Thanks to a very simple and rugged design concept that relies on few internal parts and no electronic components, they're tough, durable, and require no outboard power source to operate. Looking to outfit your church's PA system with vocal microphones? Need to mike your lead guitarist's cabinet for a big club gig? You'll find dynamic mics to fit the bill. If, however, you're looking for a recording microphone to capture sounds in exquisite detail, consider a condenser mic instead.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great mic, it has become a legend and for good reason

    Pros: Great natural sound

    Cons: No on-off switch. For home recording this is not a problem. When singing live and you get feedback it is nice to be able to shut the mic off.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This mic is the best choice for me and hundreds of other singers. All you need to do is look at what some of the best singers are using on stage and the case is closed. If you have this mic you know you are getting one of the best voice mic's out there.

    Pros: Home studio Live gigs


    The SM 58

    Written by: Perry N. from Crossville, Alabama on May 22, 2014

    Playing on stage, this has been the best over all mikes that I have ever used. With the range of this mike, you can sing the lowest of lows and highest of highs with the greatest of ease. It is one of the toughest mikes if dropped or thrown. Just pick it up and sing your heart out! Try one or 10 today and see what I'm raving about.

    Pros: Wide range, clarity and toughness. The best used by millions.

    Cons: There are no cons!!!

    Product Research


    Overview: The Shure SM58 is a rugged professional microphone designed for live performance, sound reinforcement, and studio recording applications. Its frequency response is tailored for vocals, with a brightened midrange, and a bass rolloff. This SM58-LC model comes with a swiveling stand mount and a zippered carrying bag.

    Pickup Pattern: The SM58 is has a cardioid polar pattern, which picks up the most sound from directly in front of the microphone, and some sound from the sides. This makes it less susceptible to feedback.

    Construction: The microphone has a durable metal construction, with a die cast metal handle and a dark gray matte finish. It has a pneumatic shock-mount system which reduces handling noise. The hardened steel mesh ball grille protects the internal elements, and resists wear and abuse. Inside the grille is an integrated "pop" filter that reduces explosive breath sounds and wind noise.

    Mounting: The SM58 comes with a swiveling stand mount, which provides a secure mount to a floor stand or a boom stand. The microphone slips into the swivel mount, which lets you tilt the microphone forward or backward over 180°.

    Connector: The Shure SM58 has a 3-pin male XLR connector. No microphone cable is included in this package.
