    The Shure SM58 is a classic vocal mike with great sound and durability. I am a videographer, and I use this microphone for a variety of situations, including on-camera interviews, musical performances, voice-overs, etc. In every situation, the SM58 captures great vocals with presence, brightness, and clarity. The hefty design and under-$100 price tag make this a great, versatile microphone that won't break the bank.

      Comments about Shure SM58-LC - Cardioid Dynamic Mic:

      The Shure SM-58 is a classic, go-to microphone used worldwide, from amateurs to professionals, musicians to recording engineers. I've been using these microphones for over 20 years now and can't say enough good things about it. This microphone is also known to take a beating and still work after many, many live performances. This mic is also a standard mic used at most venues. One of the best sounding microphones at such a great price!

                      This mic is used in my folk roots fusion bluegrass duo, if you can explain that, go ahead! Anyway, this mic has a great classic shape and feel, and beautiful sound. It came highly recommended by a colleague of mine who insisted that this is the only mic I'll ever need. He was right!

                                  Great sound, great feel in your hand, solidly constructed - all reasons this mic is on so many stages across the world.

                                      Lower cost alternative to other professional mic's out there. I have four of these and they sound fantastic.

                                        We use this mic daily in our morning tv show broadcast to all students in a middle school. These mics go through a lot. They never fail.
