Shure SM58 Handheld Dynamic Microphone at a Glance:
Quality sound for any source
One of the most outstanding things about the Shure SM58 is that you a can stick one in front of any kind of vocalist (and most instruments, for that matter) and get excellent results. It's a fact - even though it's best known today for its near indestructibility (we'll go into that later), no one would have cared about the SM58 in the first place if didn't sound amazing. The secret to the SM58's sound is fine-tuned frequency response, which cut out low-end rumble and adds a noticeable rise in the upper-mid frequencies. This deliberate presence peak adds warmth and clarity to your vocals, but it also lets you get the most out of a wide range of sources, including guitar cabinets, brass, and many other instruments.
Consistent performance you can count on
Here's something you probably didn't know about the Shure SM58. These handy handheld microphones are actually built to fairly tight standards. What that means is that an SM58 is going to sound like an SM58, so you can mix and match and add more SM58s to your collection, and you're always going to get the sound you expect. What's more, they all have the same focused cardioid polar pattern. That's great onstage, where you have to worry about bleed from the mains causing feedback. It's also a bonus in the studio, because it lets you get solid isolation between your vocals and your instruments.
Extreme durability for a lifetime of abuse
We can't mention the good old SM58 without talking about its legendary toughness. Drop it from a skyscraper, run over it with a box truck, freeze it, drown it, bury it in soft peat for three months - it's all been done to the SM58, repeatedly, and there are videos up on YouTube to prove it. And the best part is that not only will this heroic mic continue to function after serious abuse, it will sounds exactly the same as it did before. Now, do you think a little thing like the normal wear and tear of the stage life is any match for your SM58? No way! Buy a Shure SM58, and you've got a killer mic you can put in your will.

Sturdy as a brick and actually useable!
I've heard of people taking the mic off of a stand in a live set-up, using it to hammer in an exposed... read more [+] nail on the stage, and then put it right back up on the stand for the following show. The thing can take a beating. I believe the durability tests that Shure put this mic through involved dropping it out of a multi-story window.
And as far as sound quality goes, It's useable! Not great, but certainly not bad. I know singers who refuse to sing through anything else, on stage or recording. As a previous reviewer stated, If the performance is there, this mic won't get in the way.
In my opinion if you're involved in live sound OR recording, you should have at least one of these. close [-]
This is the mic I will be using after the nuclear holocaust happens because it will be one of the only things left on earth that still works.
