Best budget vocal mic
Anonymous 27.01.2016
I have two SM58s as main vocal mics for acoustic gigs with a good quality PA and they are just as good as you would expect. I also have two cheaper mics (Samson and a Thomann T-bone) which are acceptable but need care with EQ.

But having tried the SM48 I would not buy any other budget mic. It's not as warm-sounding as the 58, which I would always choose first, but as a backup mic it's perfect. It's a bit brighter but the same solid Shure quality. If it was the only mic available I would have no qualms about using it whereas the other cheap ones always feel like second best.

And of course it has the professional look, nobody will be thinking, "hmmm cheap mics."

I just wish there was an SM47

Good enough
CliveM 22.11.2014
I needed a spare mic and didn't want to spend the earth so I though 'Shure aren't going to make anything that's rubbish even if it IS a bit cheap' so I gave this one a punt. And it's fine. Obviously it's not as good as the 58 but it's only half the price. So for the money, I'm very pleased with it; it's my '4th' mic so it won't be too challenged!
It's clear, covers a good range of frequencies, doesn't feedback at the drop of a hat, feels solid enough and if I changed the 48 to 58 most people wouldn't notice.

One month later. . .It does lack the punch of the 58 and I need to boost the gain on my desk to get it to match my other mics but it still gives a good sound..

Decent for the price!

It's decent for the price. It maybe ''lacks some power'' but overall it's a great mic for rehearsal or for home studio experimentation.
