The indestructible legend

The SM58 is a legend among dynamic vocal microphones. Introduced in 1966, the SM58 is still an industry standard today, and it is a regular first choice amongst both music professionals and amateurs worldwide thanks to its staple clear sound and robust construction. The Shure SM58 is available in two versions: The standard “LC” as well as the “S” version, which features an on/off switch.

Adaptable and great sounding

When it comes to speech or vocals, the SM58's matched frequency response ensures a clear and punchy sound, with midrange presence boost and a slight bass roll-off, improving intelligibility and transparency. Its cardioid polar pattern focuses mainly on its front axis and largely suppresses unwanted sound sources on its sides and rear, thus providing excellent protection against background noise and feedback in the process. What’s more, the integrated wind guard and pop filter greatly reduce plosive and wind interference.

The mic for everyone

Whether Classical, Hip-Hop, Country, or Metal – the Shure SM58 has proven itself many times over in each field throughout the years. Professionals and discerning amateurs alike rely on this affordable microphone to bring out the best in their voices – whether it's a family-and-friends performance in the privacy of a living room or a concert at Wembley. The frequency response of the SM58 is especially well suited to the voice and often leaves little treatment needed at the mixing desk.

About Shure

The American company Shure began developing microphones during the early 1930s and is one of the pioneers of the audio engineering sector. Models such as the 55 Unidyne - known to many as the "Elvis microphone" - and the SM57 and SM58 which appeared in the mid-1960s are still ubiquitous in live sound production today. They enjoy cult status among musicians and technicians alike. In the 1990s, Shure introduced the first wireless microphones and in-ear monitoring systems and became a market leader in this field. In addition to microphones, Shure offers a wide range of earphones and headphones for studio and live use, as well as various accessories.

Road-tested and near indestructible

The Shure SM58 can be relied upon for anything, even more so when the going gets tough. Its rugged construction, steel mesh grille, and enamelled metal body effectively protect it from the rough-and-tumble of everyday stage use – and the integrated pneumatic shock absorber system greatly reduces the influence of knocks, handling noises, and vibrations.

Industry standard for a reason
soulcat 12.04.2019
The SM58 is Industry standard fo dynamic handheld mics for a reason. Maybe the Beta58 suits you better, though. A short omparison:

1) Beta58 Hypercardioid, SM58 Cardiod - so the Beta58 shows a significantly more directed pickup pattern, which can be good or bad, depending on how much you can control your mic positon and how the monitors are set up (cardioid is least sensitive on the rear, hypercardioid is least sensitive on the sides).

2) Beta58 has a significantly higher output level at similar SPL - if you are working with less expensive preamps this can be a big advantage. With the SM58, it depends a lot on the preamp used if you get pro level results or not.

3) Beta58 has an extended high frequency response, it's high mids / low highs ('presence') are a little faint, but can be easily EQed in, as it takes EQ very well.

4) Overall built quality is better at the Beta58: Hardenend grill, better damping of handling noise. In combination with midrange gear (Focusrite Scarlett series interfaces for example) I prefer the Beta58, as the missing mid / presence peak (it's only 'disadvantge' compare to the SM58) can be EQed in easily, but the higher output level is a real advantage: It gives you a better signal to noise ratio. If you use high end gear with good preamps the SM58 can deliver excellent results, too, though when the budget is big enough you'd rather go with a high-end handheld condenser instead (for example Neumann KMS105), unless you are very loud on stage...

For those of you who have still not been introduced to a SM58
Glenn9675 16.09.2015
Personally I don't think a review is required for a SM58, but for those of you who are fairly new to the game, and are not just simply looking for a mic, but looking to invest in a piece of equipment that will be with you for MANY years.......... Read on!

As far as I'm concerned, if you had to look up the word "microphone" in the dictionary, it would say "See Shure SM58"
The SM58 has just about been around since the beginning of time. It's the ultimate vocal microphone. It's not only extremely robust, but is able to transfer all the vocal frequencies you throw at it though to your mixing desk, whether it be soft female vocals, or loud male vocals from a thrash metal band, so it can really take a beating on being shouted into and doesn't distort.

In an emergency you can use it pretty much across the stage, it will even handle the sound pressure from a snare drum, but there are better mics suited for that.

I have just purchased another two from Thomann, not because my others wore out, but just to add to my mic collection. I have got one particular SM58 that is 20 years old this year, and as expected, there is no audible difference between that one and the new ones I've just bought. The only thing I've done to the old one, eight years ago, was replace the grill, because many years of abuse being dropped by various musicians along the way.

So if you're still trying to make up your mind about whether to go for a SM58 or not, just buy one anyway, and make up your mind later.
Thanks to Thomann again for having them at such a good price!!

the most common good mic around
mbwhite 14.05.2021
It's by far the most used, well known, durable, sturdy, good sounding live mic around. There's not a single tech who doesn't know how it reacts and sounds. There's not a single stage anywhere in the world with a bunch of them ready to be used. Or abused, it never fails.
But, even if it's the standard that everybody use as a term of comparison, it may not be the best for YOUR voice.
I don't love it with mine for example. There's a thing on mid frequencies that doesn't marry that good with my voice. I prefer other similar priced mics, sometimes I prefer singing with a 57.
So it may not be the best for you, but you must start from here, it's the number 1 of any mic arsenal, along with its cousin SM57.

Great microphone, excellent sound
Dynosius 25.05.2021
Aside from the obvious fact that this microphone is one of the lowest outputting mics out there (which you can gather from many reviews online) everything about this exceeded expectations.

Pros:

- Built like a tank
- Very good for noisy rooms, as 90% of the sound it picks up is from 0-50 cm in front of it
- Warm sounding, but you can manage that depending on how far from it you're speaking/singing

Cons:

- Will need some sort of a preamp or post production if it's not loud enough for you, it's really quiet unless you put the sound source right on top of the microphone's head while recording. I personally don't mind it, but it's more quiet than I expected initially
