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.

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).

The best solution for small rehearsal rooms.
Sergey Gavriluk, 13.04.2020
Shure Beta 58 A
The microphone that does not need advertising :)
A Chinese-made microphone came to me, I don’t know if that makes a difference or not, but the microphone is great. The main task for a microphone is in a confined space, not have feedback. We have a small rehearsal room, and this microphone did the best job because of its supercardioid focus. Quality and high quality sensitivity.

Me. the lack of a button on the microphone does not bother me, since in my opinion this went in favor of durability.

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.
