Dynamic Cardioid Vocal Microphone with Switch
The Shure SM58S dynamic cardioid vocal mic with switch is the world standard professional stage microphone. Although the "58" is often imitated in appearance, its lively, intelligible, powerful sound and rugged reliability have never been duplicated.Makes rock, r&b, pop, and country vocals sound their best. Cardioid (unidirectional) dynamic. Frequency response: 50 to 15,000 Hz.
Introduced in 1966 the SM58 revolutionized performance microphones, providing an easy to hold, rugged and high sonic quality microphone for the first time. Fifteen primary patents were issued for the technology in the SM58 including a pneumatic shock cancelling system which reduces handling noise and protects loudspeakers if the microphone is dropped.
The metal windscreen/pop-filter not only reduces breath and wind noises, but is also designed to act as a crumple zone, protecting the precision dynamic element if dropped head first. The wind screen can be easily replaced in the field.
The pattern is unidirectional/cardioid which minimizes ambient sound pickup. The frequency response is designed to add clarity to human voice while minimizing the proximity effect that most cardioid mics suffer. A sharp cut filter reduces sibilant effects in certain voices.
Performers everywhere can depend on its reliability and clear sound.
The microphone has been continuously improved over the years, keeping the identical sound of the original design while improving ruggedness, reliability and consistency.
