    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.

                  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!

                                  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.

                                              Needed a microphone to use for a wedding in my back yard. This mic produces excellent sound, in part due to its low sensitivity and impedence. However, as I discovered, you must have the right equipment and connections to amplify and output the sound to your speakers. Tried using an adaptor that converts from mic xlr to 3.5 mm plug (from Shure), and plugged it into my computer. The sensitivity voltage of the computer audio card was too high compared to the mic output, so all I got out of the computer was a tiny whisper. Then I used an old tapedeck (with correct sensitivity) to receive the mic input, which was then output to my receiver/amplifier. To connect the mic to the tapedeck I needed an adaptor that converted the mic balanced xlr output to an unbalance phone plug. That setup did not work, and I suspect the tapedeck was the culprit. I ended up buying a small mixer which had an xlr plug to connect directly with the mic. So make sure you know you have the right equipment before you buy.
