The Shure Model SM58
dynamic cardioid microphone

Shure SM58


The Shure Model SM58 is a unidirectional (cardioid) dynamic vocal microphone designed for professional vocal use in sound reinforce­ment and studio recording. 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. The SM58 has a tailored vocal response for a sound which is a world standard. 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, singing or speech—the SM58 is the overwhelming choice of professionals worldwide.
