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.
