Shure SM58
The Shure SM58 was one of my first microphones that I used to record with at home. I have pretty much used all of the Shure Line mics. The thing that’s best about this one is its good for a little bit of everything. No matter what frequencies your voice is, it works. You don’t even have to have a windscreen. I remember recording with this mic, with no stand or windscreen. With a little bit of Eqing, it sounding amazing for just recording in my living room on my Toshiba laptop at the time. I have came a long way from those days. But I would still use the SM58 in a heartbeat. I recommend this mic to anyone starting out. Its really cheap and sounds great.


The mic is very precise with the sound, you may have to cut out some of the lower end frequencies with it, depending on how close you are to the mic and how deep your voice is. That was the only issue that I had when using this mic. I didn’t try any models prior to this one, I think I might have use a cheap radio shack mic 1 time but when I got this that thing went in the trash! I am very happy that I found this mic many years ago. Shure really put out a quality product with this and best of all anyone can afford it. It is even being sold in most of your main stores now, you no longer have to go to a guitar center or sam ash to find it. I wont be surprised if wal mart doesn’t carry it, (if they don’t already?). A high quality mic for a great price… I stand by it! Don’t waste your money on all those mics that cost twice as much as this one, this one will work just as good and save you money at the same time!

Shure SM58
Polar Pattern
Unidirectional (cardioid), rotationally symmetrical about microphone axis, uniform with frequency

Sensitivity (at 1,000 Hz Open Circuit Voltage)
-54.5 dBV/Pa (1.85 mV)
1 Pa = 94 dB SPL

Rated impedance is 150 ohms (300 ohms actual) for connection to microphone inputs rated low impedance

Positive pressure on diaphragm produces positive voltage on pin 2 with respect to pin 3


The 58 is sort of like the 57 with a different front as most people have argued. They both seem to have the same type of sound, that is with enhanced presence and upper midrange and not much low end. These are good for vocals and increases the presence through the mix for most people. I've used the 58 like a 57 for experiments and have found that it doesn't quite suit the job as a 57 would and is definitely geared more for straight forward vocals.

Compared to the 57 there are slight differences, the 57 actually seems to have a bit more low end overall while the 58 is a bit cleaner and clearer in general. The 58 has become the worldwide industry standard microphone that you'll see on every stage from small to stadium-sized. It's a decent sounding mic and relatively well priced. There have been many variations made of this microphone with slight EQ tweaks and what not but in my opinion for a dynamic vocal mic it really doesn't take much in terms of a mic to get some good sounds if you start with the SM58.

For live use, I'd say these are the SM58 vocal mics and SM57 mics are the ones to be looking at, for recording purposes they are decent but if you can spend a bit on decent condenser mics you may be better off. I've personally stopped recording with dynamic mics for most situations (minus drums) but for live it's almost absolutely necessary as most stages aren't totally capable of handling condenser mics in a good manner.

The SM58 is a dynamic microphone. It should primarily be used for live vocals. This is the mic that you see at almost every live performance you've been to, except for maybe the higher end concerts that would have something nicer. Being a cardioid dynamic mic, it is well suited for close mic'ing an isolated source in a noisy environment (ie, stage).

Stick this mic right up to a singer's mouth and you will get minimal bleed from the other instruments on-stage. The frequency response also is tailored for this use. It has a low frequency roll-off to account for the proximity effect that will be caused by someone singing with the mic right on their lips. There is also a presence boost in its frequency response, so this should help the vocals cut through a bit better.

Additionally, the head of the mic is encased in a wire grill over some foam, so this will help to reduce the plosive sounds you'll get from a singer.


I've been using these since about 6 years ago. It is pretty much the standard live vocal mic. It definitely gets the job done just fine, and at an attractive price. If I had to complain, you could say the highs can be a little dull, but frankly this is less important in a live setting - you wouldn't really want to use this for recording, when a condenser mic would be best.

They are also extremely durable - I've dropped SM58's so many times and they always work just fine. And if you dent the grill on the end and you need your mics to be in pristine condition - Shure sells replacement grills. Another benefit this has is due to the fact that it's a cardiod, if you keep it faced toward the band, and behind your main PA (so that your mic never faces the fronts of the speakers) you can dramatically reduce chance of feedback, because the mic is going to reject sound source from behind it.

I've used many similar products, and at this price range, for a live vocal mic you can't go wrong. Not only would I buy it again - I have - I own a few of them. Any band who wants to start getting some of their own performance equipment should definitely invest in one or more of these mics, until such time they can afford much higher priced alternatives.

Shure SM58
The Shure SM58 is a dynamic microphone that can be used in either a live setting or the recording studio. While it is widely used in both situations, I have used it mostly in a live situation and have found that they are most useful in this setting because of how well built and long lasting these are. It has a sleek design that has almost become synonymous with what a live vocal mic looks like as it is perfect for holding and singing into. The SM58 is essentially the same microphone as the SM57 on the inside - the only difference is the grill on the SM58, which makes it more suitable for vocals. For this reason it has become an industry standard for live vocal mics because of their high sound quality, their sturdiness, and how cheap in price they are.


I've been using Shure SM58s for about seven years and boy can these things take a beating. I have seen ones that appear to have huge dents in them, but still work great. They are the top choice of a lot of touring bands as they can stand to take a beating and even if they get lost or stolen they are cheap and easily replaceable. These mics will definitley give you your moneys worth and even sound pretty great in the studio. In this price range I don't think I can find a mic that is as good or as reliable as this one. I'm Having a few SM58s around is always a good thing, no matter what you are doing musically. I recommend checking these out for live vocals or even for use in the studio. They're great all around mics brought to you by a great company with a great reputation for making high quality mics at reasonable prices.
