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!!

Love this mic!!
LizCJ, 08.02.2019
Use mine for gigging. Dropped it and dented it and it still works perfectly, but I did buy another two as spares just in case!! But I'll happily still use the dented one!
Rock solid microphone, would highly recommend it!!!

I bought this for my personal home karaoke needs...! It is excellent value for money and considering all the drunken shenanigans, it has proven to be remarkably resistant to "dropping the mike" (yes, awful, I know... but drunken non-musicians don't know you shouldn't do this!). For the price, an absolutely excellent mike.

Nothing to add! Buy, it is very affordable. For live shows - perfect. Ofcourse there is a better mic out here in the world, but for that value... Hard to find..

The Mic. The Myth. The Legend.
Schengis, 24.06.2019
Let's be honest, if you're sincerely reading this review and you have never held one of these microphones in your hand before, you aren't allowed to call yourself a musician just yet, and especially not a vocalist.

I've never known another mic to be able to take such a beating and still be able to perform up to standard. There is a reason that this thing is the workhorse of the live music industry and has been since 1966.

All of that being said, I don't there's anyone who would recommend this mic for any studio applications. Its life should certainly be lived out on the stage.

Do you perform live?
Do you sing?
Buy this mic.

Alikhan, 19.12.2017

A perfect solution for any musician and singer. thanks to Thomann for the great service, everything was cool and at altitude, I recommend this microphone to everyone, and you will not regret it. Many thanks Thomann that you are with us. I'm happy

sm58 mikes
Js Symbol, 21.05.2019
It is the best choice to make when you need to have a great reliable and solid mike for a minimal price. I tried to replace sm 58 with different other but never found the same stable quality even during harsh condition events. I'm very pleased with all the sm 58 I have.

SM58 the go to microphone
Walterman, 19.06.2019
Look I sing a bit of backing vocal everynow and then. Bought this as I have used SM58's for years. Even seen John Otway and Wild Woolly Barrett play cricket with them. Robust seems a tame word to describe them. Good frequency response and as a general purpose mike its perfect.

Super!
Oriel, 15.11.2013
I was planning to buy the Beta 58 but at the end I have decided to go for SM58 for the reason that I will get experience first and get it next time. The time that I have tried it, I never expect that it is very good microphone and I am not sure if I am still going to upgrade soon but maybe. It is really a heavy duty microphone and well made. I would recommend it for newbies that starting to sing!

Really good for the prize
Rytmimuna, 15.02.2019
I have been using this microphone for over 5 years and it's been REALLY GOOD!

Build quality is superb. I have dropped this microphone so many times that I cannot even count anymore and it is still working as new. Sound quality is good as expected from this mic.

I cannot think anything bad from this mic.

Best mic I've had
10.03.2016
Okay, so I haven't had that many mics as I'm a beginner wrt singing, but I've had a few and this is by far the best. I like the solidity of the design and just by holding it, you know it's a quality product. It seems to be a no nonsense product designed for one thing only, which is to pick up vocals well. This mic doesn't even have an on/off switch, which is why I bought it (one less thing that can break).

The sound is very good and it's quite good at rejecting pop sounds, however, it will pop some if you're really close (read:lips touching).

My friend recommended this to me (he has several) and this was definitely the right choice for my studio. I wouldn't hesitate using this on gigs either.

DO you need to read a review?
04.06.2016
It's the 58. What more do you need to know?

Extremelly durable, very good sound, reliable, cheap, resellable, iconic.

Still, since you're reading a review of this mic, you may actually not know about it. So keep this in mind:

It's a dynamic vocal mic. It's for singing live, or maybe tracking a guitar amp if you absolutely have to. It's good for having it lying around in your homestudio for vocoder use or recording drafts. It's NOT for studio recordings.

It's good for what it's made for, and every mic has it's use.

Remember: Vocals, live, and maybe taking notes.
