Shure Beta 58 A

Dynamic Vocal Microphone

In the tradition of the SM58, the dynamic Beta 58A has become the first choice among singers and professional sound engineers.

The Beta 58A is a dynamic, high-output vocals microphone designed for professional audio amplification and use in the recording studio. The supercardioid polar pattern extends over the entire transmission range and guarantees high, feedback resistant amplifications, maximum isolation from other sound sources and a minimum of off-axis sound. The contoured frequency response is ideal for close-up vocals.

Due to its robust construction, proven shock absorber system, and hardened steel windscreen, its outstanding performance is not compromised even with rough handling. Typical applications of the Beta 58A are lead vocals, backup vocals, and speech.

  • Maximum sound pressure level: 140.5 dB
  • Output impedance: 290 Ohm
  • Sensitivity: -51.5 dBV/Pa (2.66 mV)
  • Dimensions (L x Ø): 160 x 50 mm

Excellent microphone proven to last
Tsepe, 02.10.2018
I have used this microphone in a multitude of applications over the years and I decided to finally buy one for myself.
Perfect for close proximity vocals/loud vocals and live performances. Super sturdy and heavy as it is can take a lot of beating and still work for years. No rattling or looseness in this microphone, so your recording performance will be free of sound artifacts caused by moving the microphone. I have also experimented with it recording high gain electric guitars with a lot of success. I would not recommend it to vocalists that are into genres like opera or more open vocal applications as it does not perform well if the distance from the microphone starts increasing beyond a certain point. One more strong point of this microphone is that it will ot pick up ambient sound the way a large diaphragm microphone will, so you will be able to record in environments that are not soundproofed/relatively loud with substantial success. In conclusion this microphone is a legend and there is a reason why a HUGE number of artists choose the
Shure Beta 58 for live performances. It's reliability, quality, sound and price make it an extremely attractive option (even for "pro" applications).

Legendary Mic!
Steve Z, 22.05.2019
I bought this mic for my home PA as a bundle offer,always based on reviews on thomann and i was not dissapointed!This is one of the best dynamic vocal microphones ever produced with its predecessor being a legendary mic and it is no luck why it outperforms all the other mics..in my ears,and since i own also the Sennheiser e945 and so i can compare those two mics,the SHURE Beta 58A is the most well-balanced dynamic mic i have ever used..The lows and the mids (especially the mids) are just excelent..the highs are very clear and the total result is just amazing.You just cannot go wrong with this mic..robust,high built quality and exceptional clarity.. BEST mic money can buy in this price range.

well worth the extra 50ish quid vs. the standard 58.
great for live female vox, much brighter than a 58, but not brittle/sharp. I've never had any feedback issues, and the build quality is classic indestructible 58.

BEST IN CLASS
Sekula, 10.08.2020
I'll just say shure beta 58A. I use it for live performances in pubs and restaurants, it also great for recording in the studio. In my opinion this is the best microphone in its class and it also has a very affordable price.
