A Great Microphone for Live Vocals

You need top performance from your live vocal mic. It has to be ready for the job, day in and day out, and sound great every time. In other words, you need a Shure Beta 58A! Perfect for vocals in live environments, this go-to dynamic mic gives you the ruggedness you need while its supercardioid pickup pattern excels at keeping outside sound sources at bay. The Beta 58 has a very smooth frequency response, so it works well on all kinds of voices. When clean, clear, detailed stage sound is a requirement, choose the Beta 58A.

Shure Beta 58A Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone at a Glance:
  • Tuned for great live vocal performance
  • Industry-standard dependability
  • Supercardioid polar pattern is excellent at rejecting feedback
Tuned for great live vocal performance

Singers will love this mic, plain and simple. The high-output Beta 58A has a natural presence boost at 4kHz and 9kHz. This shaped frequency response is ideal for close-up vocals, bringing out the clarity needed for cutting through a live mix. And the bass roll off helps control proximity effect, so you have consistent performance from your mic while you focus on yours. The Beta 58's internal shockmount minimizes handling noise as well. Tailored for vocals, it's hard to find a better mic out there.

Industry-standard dependability

Shure has famously put their microphone designs through some insane punishments to demonstrate their durability and road-worthiness. The Beta 58 is no different. Shure knew when they were designing this mic that the stage and the road can be extremely difficult on gear. Just sounding great isn't enough. The Beta 58 would have to do it night after night, town after town, and gig after gig. Borrowing from Shure's rich history of dependability, the Beta 58 gives you just that.

Supercardioid polar pattern is excellent at rejecting feedback

Ok, so you're on stage, your mic sounds great, and is holding up well on the road. Then all of a sudden your guitar player decides he needs to be twice as loud tonight! No worries. The Shure Beta 58's supercardioid pickup pattern all but rejects even the loudest peripheral sounds and minimizes feedback like a champ. Maybe that's why so many live sound engineers rely on them, and love when a performer does as well. But we can't help you with your guitar player.

Shure Beta 58A Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone Features:
  • Super clear live vocal dynamic microphone
  • Frequency response tailored for vocals
  • Legendary Shure quality, ruggedness, and reliability
  • Uniform supercardioid pickup pattern minimizes background noise

Shire beta 58a is a sure thing

Dependable, Attractive and make me sound good. I am 62 yrs of age retiree played music back in the 70's. I used Sure Mikes than and I sill use them . There's a lot of new brands out there but you still want find anything better. And you can't beat the price. So why change a good thing.

Shure Beta 58A

This mic sounds great and the best part is it doesn't feedback as bad as the other mics do. It puts out a hotter signal before feedback. This combination is the ticket for pro use. I've used ball mics throughout my career. I've tried the ones with a flat spot and it just isn't my cup of tea. This is the one I choose out of all the rest. The only improvement I could ask for is I wish it had a switch. I had to use an inline Hosa switch which works great.

Solid, Reliable, Not Always Best

Sonically, this mic is a step up from the SM58. I noticed a significant difference in the clarity of the high end. This mic will do everything an SM58 does, but sound a little better and feedback a lot less. BUT: you do have to be careful about how you sing into it. It is much more sensitive to off-axis singing than an SM58, and could take some practice to get used to. That being said, it is nowhere near as sensitive as other super-cardioids, like the Sennheiser e945.Which brings me to the next point which is to MAKE SURE YOU TRY OUT OTHER MICS. If you are after a personal mic that only you (or a specific singer) will use, I highly recommend trying Sennheiser, EV, Heil Sound, and Audix. They all make great mics that suit different needs better than a Shure. If, however, you need a mic that will sound decent on everybody, look no further.
