Shure SM48 overview

  • 1Description

The Shure SM48-LC Vocal Microphone features a unidirectional (cardioid) dynamic design, well suited for lead vocals, backup vocals, and spoken word applications. The microphone features an internally shock-mounted cartridge, a steel mesh grille, and an internal pop filter for mitigating plosives. The durable construction can withstand the rigors of on-the-road wear and tear. The SM58-LC is designed to perform consistently both outdoors and indoors, and when used for singing or speech applications. The microphone includes a microphone clip and a zippered pouch.

  • Cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis sound and provides superior gain before feedback
  • Frequency response tailored for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass roll-off to control proximity effect
  • Shock-mounted cartridge for exceptional ruggedness and reduced handling noise
  • Built-in "pop" filter that reduces plosive breath sounds and wind noise
  • Supplied stand adapter and carrying/storage bag
  • Shure quality and ruggedness

    Shure SM48 reviews

    SM48-LC Vocal Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Shure Microphone I needed 3 wired mics quickly and knew B&H could get them to me quickly. The question I had for myself was whether to buy Shure's SM58 known world wide for having an excellent reputation or the lesser priced SM48. Trusting Shure to not make a bad product, I bought 3 SM48s and had them by Christmas Eve for the worship service. I used all three in the service 1 for flute, 1 for clarinett, and one for piano. The sound was very good and the recording was the revelation of how good these mics really are. They sound terrific!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome for the money Picked up a couple of these for practice in my studio for the band. Ok, so I didn't wanna spring for the SM58 so I got these. Hooked these up through an Allen & Heath ZED board running EV ELX112P Speakers and a DriveRack PX. I'll have to say for the money and a small practice space there is no difference in the 48 and 58. I would have given 5 stars but it not the 58 and certainly not the Beta 58. Still, rugged as the 58 for sure. Didn't like the mic clip that Shure sent with it as it grabs the mic at the end of it rather than somewhere in the middle. Overall a great performer and B&H has it priced right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value My first shoot with this mic was an outdoor event in 30-40 mile per hour winds with loud music blaring on a P.A. system. I put a cheap foam windscreen on and the SM48 performed beautifully. It picked up almost no wind noise, no handling noise, and it did a great job rejecting off-axis sound. The audio quality in general is quite good, and the price is right!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price for a top-notch mic Used mainly for hosts on camera, I've used this mic on many shoots already. It has a performance that is reflective of its big brother, the SM-58, with an almost unnoticeable difference between quality. This mic deserves it's Shure logos, as it does hold up its end of the bargain.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatility If you're in doubt about the versatile SM57, the legend of the SM58 and the price of PG series, maybe you can be satisfied with the SM48 as I did...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the Job Done I got this on sale and am very happy. 1/3rd the price of the 58, but perfect for biking or rehearsal vocals. Built like a Shure, very tough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow... Awesome Mic for the money... I can spend more but it isn't going yo make me a better singer. I needed a mic for back-up vocal in my rock band. I replace a no name mic that was flat in the mix. I plugged in this mic and it immediately made a difference in our band vocal sound. This mic is heavyduty. I am impressed... I highly recommend...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Bang For The Buck I work as KJ, DJ, and run my own sound systems for events and local bands. I purchased 3 of these for background vocals and miking the bass drum for a major regional band in a small-medium setting. They came through with flying colors, crisp and clear, not muddy or tinny. Everyone said the PA sounded GREAT
