Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
Consistently the first choice of performers around the globe, the SM58®
vocal microphone is a genuine world standard and a true audio legend.
The Shure SM58 is a unidirectional (cardioid) dynamic vocal microphone
designed for professional vocal use in live performance, sound reinforcement,
and studio recording. A highly effective, built-in, spherical filter minimizes
wind and breath "pop" noise. A cardioid pickup pattern isolates
the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise. Rugged
construction, a proven shock mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure
that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently. Outdoors
or indoors, singing or speech -- the SM58 is the choice of professionals
In the tradition of the SM58®, the Beta 58A dynamic microphone has
become a top choice among vocalists and touring sound professionals. The
Shure Beta 58A is a high-output supercardioid dynamic vocal microphone
designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording.
It maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range.
This insures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound
sources, and minimum off-axis tone coloration. The Beta 58A has a shaped
frequency response that is ideal for close-up vocals. The superb performance
of this microphone is not affected by rough handling because of its rugged
construction, proven shock mount system, and hardened steel mesh grille.
Typical applications for the Beta 58A include lead vocals, backup vocals
