Bread and butter item
Barry9975, 28.02.2019
There's a reason it has a reputation for quality. Great little work horse! Takes a few knocks and bangs at gigs and no noticable degradation in sound quality!

I understand now why its still relevant
04.03.2016
A classic, old mic. I've tested it against other big mics from Shure, Sennheiser e900 series, and the well rounded sound, extremely feedback resistant, ideal for close miking style, solidity

It will not make your voice crystal but I must say for a live setting it would be one of my first choices along a AKG D5 (C). The 58 for a well rounded sound, the D5 for brightness.

After a mic throhout test. I'd still recomend the old 58. Even Celine Dion is still using it in Las Vegas in 2016! (when she can go wired, even after seeing her with the Shure KSM she has gone back xD)

Cheers.

Original and Best
Brian5815, 26.08.2015
The SM58 is often copied but always remains consistent in it's quality. After trying out previous equivalents such as a Sennheiser I have always returned to the SM58.

My vocal range is baritone and I find that the SM58 can easily handle the combination of both the upper register and the lower register with no distortion or loss of volume. As player in a five piece band the SM58 has become a standard across the board with each one of our vocalists using them.

The SM58 is a consistent piece of kit and as a drummer who plays three gigs a week every week it is great to have something dependable that can be set up and be reliable week after week.

A known quantity
David6858, 10.03.2015
The SM58 is the most popular vocal mic in the world! It is a 50-year old design and there are plenty of newer mics available at the same price point that are of higher quality. However, many artists prefer the sound of the SM58, and it has a well-deserved reputation for durability. As a sound engineer, I'd always want to have a couple available.

SM58 Workhorse
bassman59, 09.08.2017
Its reliable, good value and built to last. We use 3 of these live for harmonies. Cheap mics are harder to control. The SM58 LC is very clear and ideally suited to vocals not crispy enough for instrument but if you unscrew the screen you get a better hf response. The 'standard' for band mics in my opinion.

Erm it's a 58
Jason7773, 29.06.2014
Rock solid workhorse. I'll probably get hung drawn and quartered for daring to say this but there are better sounding mics around for less money these days but hey this is an age old stalwart. Built like a tank won't let you down and almost anybody can get a reasonable sound out of one.

Industry Standard Vocal Microphone
Adrian3174, 13.11.2015
I usually use large diaphragm condenser microphones for voiceovers but wanted a handheld microphone with a moderate amount of mid - high range lift to give a bit of warmth to the recording. The Shure SM-58 certainly fits the bill in this respect. The build quality of these microphones is absolutely superb. Handling noise is kept to a minimum thanks to the internal shock mount. The microphone rolls off below 100Hz which is no bad thing for a handheld microphone and the proximity effect when close miking more than makes up for this. I am using the microphone with a foam windshield which can help reduce sybilance and plosive noises to a minimum.

I would definately recommend the Shure SM-58 as a vocal microphone, it certainly brings out the best of a vocal artist with it's tailored response. That said, if you are looking for a more neutral sound then consider an condenser microphone as these tend to have a ruler flat frequency response.

The microphone I bought came bundled with what is effectively a free cable as the price when bundled with a Cordial CAM 9 BK was exactly the same as the microphone on its own so it is well worth checking what bundles Thomann are offering at the time of purchase.

Please be aware that there are a lot of fake Shure microphones available for sale on internet auction websites. The microphones on sale at Thomanns are 100% genuine and are very good value for money with the euro/pound exchange rate at the moment.

Pretty good
12.12.2014
Perfect mic for beginners. Has a little loose cable problem when even tho the cable is all the way in and nice and 'clicked' into place, you still need to give it an extra push for it not to lag.
It's a very good mic. I'd recommend it 100%. Probably the best mic for the price.
Edit: Over a year later and this microphone works amazingly. No problems what so ever!

Industry standard
18.07.2016
This microphone has quite the reputation amongst musicians. I recorded vocals and instruments with it and i am quite pleased with it. Only problem i faced was when I recorded instruments it picked up quite a lot of bass notes. It was solved with putting the mic bit further away from instrument and lowering gain for lower frequencies in post. In comparison with e835 I prefer the Sennheiser by just a fraction.

Still the standard
18.02.2016
Very good microphone. The industry standard for so many years now and it will probably stay that way. Bomb proof. It avoids excessive feedback very well. Connect it to a good equaliser and you have a winning team. It is good for people who really sing into the microphone. For those who have a low volume sining voice, a condenser might do the trick better.

Best mic for the price!
skryptus, 20.01.2014
Let me start by saying I don't have alot of experience with microphones. I bought this mainly for some home recordings with my M-Audio Black Box. I got the set Thomann sells with the 10m Sssnake cable plus the Millenium Stand, which I also advise for begginers like me (I reckon advanced users will probably have both a cable and a stand already).

That said, I read and heard some ghastly stories about other microphones of this price range and I was pleased to find out that none of the issues happened with mine. There's a reason this microphone is an industry standard: its simplified approach means it doesn't have some of the bells and whistles present in some more expensive mics, but also means it gets the job done with exemplary results - clean and clear sound both recording voice and instruments (although I hear the SM57 is more adequate for that use - but for those of us who really can't justify having another mic just for the odd guitar/ukelele that lacks a pickup, this does just fine).

I DO advise getting a pop filter, in order to improve the sound a little.

Just Does It!
23.06.2016
Like an old, faithful, dog, the SM58 does exactly what it has been doing for decades. It provides reliable, good quality, vocal amplification in just about all conditions. It is sturdy, well made, simple and effective.

There is a reason why this is the industry standard
Larry F., 19.11.2014
I have bought several of these mics from Thomann, they handle well, the sound warm and they go a great job cutting out nose from behind them in high volume situations. The oldest one I have is well into double figures, it sounds as good as it did the day I bought it. You cant go wrong with this mic.

I think i don't have to say a lot about the Shure SM58.
This Microfone is probably one of the most used Micros in the business.
It has a very clear and original sound. You hear exactly what you are speaking or singing, nothing more or less.
That is what a good and solid microphone has to do.

marko258, 19.08.2013
Todella hyvä perusmikki, vankan ja tukevan tuntoinen olematta kuitenkaan "kämpelö". Keikkaelämää kestävä, mukaan tulee pussukka ja clipsi. Sopii useimmille perusmikeille, turvallinen valinta. Äänentoisto melko tasapainoinen. Suosittelen tätä perusmikiksi treeneihin ja keikoille. Hyvä hintalaatusuhde varsinkin bundle - tarjouksena.

It's an SM58 :)
Chris240, 24.09.2013
This makes a great backup vocal mic. I mainly use more expensive mics, but I know that I can leave this one hiding at the front of the stage ready to go and it will definitely work if it's needed when a "better" mic may fail.

Sometimes on a singer, this is a better sound too and many people are more comfortable with this as it is so familiar.

I carry one of these in my kit bag for talkback or for a better lead vocal mic if the venue is small. I don't have to worry about it at all, I know that I can pull it out of my bag and it will do what I need.

Useful too for testing PA systems with a familiar sounding mic, and if the band are brining SM58's too you can ring out wedges.

Test Shure Sm58
20.04.2015
Great microphone.

I use it for live music all the time. It's in my opinion a tool that any professional technicians must have. It's a classic you'll find on many hospitality riders.
It's also a really well finsh product that will last long (almost unbreakable)

good mic. i use it for vocals with a loop station. it picks up some noise from the speakers that are 1,5 meters away and this is annoying when I start a new loop and i want only the voice to be heard. but i guess that's normal, and for its price I am happy with the product!
