If you’ve ever heard someone sing or speak into a live microphone, there’s an excellent chance it was an SM58. Rock stars. Pop idols. Comedians. Presidents. Popes. Immortal words have passed through its iconic grille for generations. And with engineering and durability that set the world standard, it’s sure to keep turning up at legendary performances.
How it works
Made to handle voice with clarity and care, the uniform cardioid polar pattern reproduces every note as it was intended. And it leaves background noise behind. On any stage — from the club show to the stadium — the SM58 delivers warm, crisp sound, time after time.
Roll with no shake or rattle
Handling noise gets absorbed by the pneumatic shock mount, keeping the sound free of vibration.
Screen out unwanted air
When wind and plosives try to take over, the spherical mesh grille and built-in pop filter keep them out of the mix.
Rugged for the road ahead
Taking the show on tour? The mic’s durable construction and the break-resistant stand adapter keep the SM58 going strong through the toughest performances.
