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.

  • Supercardioid polar pattern
  • Optimised transmission range for excellent vocal quality in professional live use
  • Offers the highest level of feedback safety with maximum gain and maximum suppression of background noise
  • An air-sprung vibration absorber protects against impact sound and grip noise
  • Frequency range: 50 - 16,000 Hz
  • 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
  • Weight: 278 g
  • Included: Clamp, 3/8" reduction thread and bag
  • Suitable windscreen: Article nr 135783, matching spare basket: Article nr 148522 (both not included)

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).

A really good mic!

Hortensia, 19.04.2014
First of all, it's really important to try as many microphones as possible. It really does depend on the voice. I study music and sometimes, in class, we share microphones and while mine suits me perfectly there are other people who just don't sound as good as with their own microphones.

So, from the point of view of fabrication, quality, power... I have to say it's one of the best microphones at this price range. I really find it's a fantastic microphone and I am really really happy I bought.

Then for the sound, as I said, it depends on the voice. It's perfect for me. While the Shure 58 made me sound quite nasal and plane, this one makes my voice sound amazing (I was even surprised!). The lower notes sound very very beautiful and it gives colour to my voice.

I really recomend you all try it!
