The World's Most Popular Live Vocal Mic!

If this is your first Shure SM58 dynamic microphone, then congratulations! You're about to discover why it's the most popular vocal microphone on the face of the planet! In fact, virtually every serious studio and live sound rig have several SM58s. Why? Because the Shure SM58 gives you three of the most important things a microphone can deliver: quality, consistency, and durability. In your hand or on a stand, in your studio or onstage, gig after gig, show after show, session after session, the Shure SM58 dynamic microphone will never let you down.

Shure SM58 Handheld Dynamic Microphone at a Glance:
  • Quality sound for any source
  • Consistent performance you can count on
  • Extreme durability for a lifetime of abuse
Quality sound for any source

One of the most outstanding things about the Shure SM58 is that you 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, no one would have cared about the SM58 in the first place if it didn't sound amazing. The secret to the SM58's sound is its critically tuned frequency response, which cuts 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 handheld microphones are built to very 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 instruments.

Extreme durability for a lifetime of abuse

We can't mention the trusty 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 YouTube videos to prove it. And the best part is that not only will this heroic mic continue to function after serious abuse, it will sound exactly the same as it did before. Now, do you think a little thing like the normal wear and tear of 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.

Shure SM58 Handheld Dynamic Microphone Features:
  • The most popular handheld dynamic microphone in the world
  • Perfect for use live onstage or in your studio
  • Presence peak adds warmth and clarity to vocals and removes low-frequency rumble from all instruments
  • Cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source, minimizes background noise, and provides high gain before feedback
  • Internal pneumatic shockmount system cuts down handling noise
  • Effective, built-in spherical wind and pop filter reduces breath noise and plosives
  • Includes break-resistant stand adapter that rotates 180-degrees
  • Legendary Shure quality, ruggedness, and reliability
The Shure SM58 is the world's most popular vocal mic, and it's built to last!

Beginning my own Sound Resources

As with all of my purchases, this Shure Microphone is as good as advertised and came with the support and expertise of Sweetwater's fantastic staff. Thank's Jonathan Appleton!

SM58 Shure - is nice!

Speaks for itself......loud and clear

like an old shoe....

I'm not going to tell you this will get you a record deal. I'm not going to tell you that you'll look good posing with it. I'm not going to tell you it's the big deal. I'm not going to tell you that this is the one just so you can tell everyone you own one. .....that said- I am going to tell you, like the geyser in yellowstone, it's old faithful. When you grab it, it's always there, always the same, always reliable, always sounds great, always WORKS. Face it, we all have a lot to worry about- gate, equipment, dates, on and one...but one thing you'll never have to think about is your mics. Can you place a value on that? Get it. Go for what works..always works. Don't reinvent the wheel

Sweetwater Advice

Jeff Barnett

Years ago, I was driving a pickup truck over-loaded with gear down a Texas highway en route to a gig. We hit a bump, our mic case flew open, and two SM58's bounced onto the pavement going 65 MPH. Amazingly, not only did the mic's still work, but their sound wasn't affected one bit (the grille, on the other hand...). Almost every gigging musician has a story like this, and that's part of what makes the SM58 an enduring classic!

Carson McClain

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.
