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