The Shure SM58® unidirectional (cardioid) dynamic vocal microphone was designed for professional vocal use in live performance, sound reinforcement,
and studio recording. It has been the World’s favourite microphone for more than 50 years!
It has a tailored vocal response for a sound which is a world standard for singing or speech. A highly effective, built-in spherical
filter minimizes wind and breath “pop” noise. A cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise.
Rugged construction, a proven shock-mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently, outdoors or indoors.
I bought mine in London in 1981 and it’s still going strong!
