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.

      I was looking for a way for a low coast PA for our Senior Citizens meeting using my PC as the amp. This mic along with the Shure SHX2UXLRUSB
      X2u - XLR to USB Microphone Signal Adapter was a perfect solution, Now everyone in the back can here all presentations.

      Comments about Shure SM58-LC Vocal Microphone:

      I use the ShureSM58 along with my Zoom H4n to recored my weekly pro-wrestling podcast The Work of Wrestling. The SM58 is leaps and bounds better than cheaper USB condenser mics and the like. If you can afford it, you can't really go wrong with this one. It's definitely a must to study a bit to figure out what equipment best suits your needs (and to spend a bit of time figuring out the proper-recording level), but if you're looking for a good kit for a podcast the Shure Voice Over Kit from B&H gives you everything you need (save a H4N) - XLR cable, Stand, clip, and the mic itself. Can't recommend it enough.

              This Mic is an industry standard. This mic was purchased for a church, and like all the rest of the SM58's we have it is of the highest standard. Usuable right out of the box. Just unpack and go! The service is just as impressive as the microphone.

                                  Having used a variety of expensive mics over the years in live performances and studio work, the Shure SM-58 simply can't be beat when it comes to good, clear response to vocals, and being tough enough to stand up to careless handling when necessary. I wanted a mic that would come closest during studio rehearsals in allowing the performers to hear what they were going to sound like on stage with the more expensive wireless system, so they could polish their mic techniques. This mic fit the bill perfectly--I couldn't be more pleased with how it stacked up against more costly and sophisticated equipment.
