Old school look with modern high tech performance.If that's what you want you will get your moneys worth and then some with this great Shure mic. Sometimes the manufacturer oversells a product, not in this case. Shure recreated the exact vintage mic housing around a very clean and crisp mic sound. This sounds much better than an SM 58 and much better than it's counterpart the cheaper 55. I returned that one. If you are a quality sound freak you will be happy with this mic. Don't worry about the lack of an on off switch it doesn't need it.

Cool Mic!I'd be hard pressed to give any piece of gear a 5 star rating but this one is close. It's Shure so you know it's tough. Cool vintage look we wanted for our Rockabilly band. Sound is great. Nice and clear and takes less juice from the preamp than a 57 or 58. The supercard pattern makes it MUCH less likely to feedback and therefore much easier to deal with as a sound guy. You can push it harder with less fear, and that is excellent. The new blue foam is cool too. Style coupled with function. Can't beat it.

Super 55 DeluxeThe Super 55 Deluxe provides a crisp clean output that is great for vocal tracks where you want the vocals to have low cut frequency eq'ing. I can really push the gain without feedback in a live room sound set up, so it is also great for live performance It is built like a tank as with all Shure Microphones and is a solid Microphone that will last a lifetime. I am happy to have it in my arsenal of Mic's.

Beware of "plosives" with this mic!Beautiful, well constructed, cool looking mic. You just can't wait to sing into it. Warm, full sound, then you sing a word with a "B" or a "P" in it and hear your subwoofers nearly jump out of their cabinets. Even singing off axis, the "plosives" are just too much. Had been using an EV RE410 condenser, and never had any trouble like that. Going to stick with what works and sacrifice the cool factor.
