    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:

      These are the best corded mics I have ever used. I own a Mobile entertainment company (A+ Event Entertainment) and I finally bought the best! So happy.

      I would've bought the ones with the on/off switch if I'd have known there was a different model.

        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!

                                  This is one of my favorite mics. Durable, reliable and high quality. You can't go wrong with this one. Keep in mind that this is a general purpose mic, so adjust your expectations accordingly.

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