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 the live environment, 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, really bringing out the clarity needed for cutting through a live mix. And the bass roll off really helps control proximity effect, so you have consistant 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.

Beta 58A

I sing through this mic every night I play. Two years have gone by since I purchased this and I still can't seem to find any flaws. For those on stage with drummers and other loud instruments - the supercardioid pattern on this mic does cut down drum bleed over an SM58 (or other cardioid dynamic mics). The sound is great and I'm convinced it will never break - 5 stars without hesitation.

Love this mic

Blows away my old SM 58's, loud and clear mic. My fav live mic so far.

Takes Some Practice

This mic was hard to get used to. Bought it after losing the trusty old SM58 at a gig, decided to upgrade. This mic is way more sensitive to movement than the SM58, so much so that it took me almost a week of practice to get used to. If you close your eyes and sing into an SM, you can move around a little without the sound being affected much. With this mic, you need to keep that grill right in one spot and only pull back slightly, or else the level will drop. But the result? AMAZING feedback rejection. I've laid down scratch vocal tracks in the studio control room with monitors blaring 2 feet away from my face, and the leakage was almost inaudible on the playback. I highly recommend this mic for experienced singers who perform on loud stages. Pack it with you, if there's feedback, switch out the mic, plug this in.

Excellent performance microphone, clear sound with mimized feedback.

Excellent microphone. I've tried several different models and the Shure Beta 58A has the lowest feedback and clearest sound of them all! It picks up all vocal ranges. I had problems with some microphones not picking up anything above the 3rd octave on the piano scale, vocally, and others that would not pick up the lower base range.

The best performance mic there is

Before purchasing my Beta 58A, I had a Blue enCore 200. It was a decent mic, but a wire came loose inside and I had to borrow the drummer's 58A while it was being fixed. Well, it was like the part in the Wizard of Oz when it goes from black and white to color. We're talking crisp, clear high end punch that cuts through the mix like a sharp blade. Further, the mic seems to be much more durable, too, and it is considerably lighter as well. I couldn't be happier with this microphone, and I would highly recommend it to any working musician who lives for vocals.
