Just wanted to review my favorite mic of all time the Shure SM58. Everyone who is anybody has used it through the years. The popular black base with the silver top you can spot the SM58 from a mile away!

I was in a band that required me to sing backup vocals. I paid $89 for it brand new. It can with a clip, bag and cool sticker. I knew of their reliability and knew it was the mic for me.

I like it because it is a solid piece of gear. It is the industry standard. Sound guys know how to mix them and they work for almost any application you need mic'd.

I have used this microphone to mic guitar amps, bass amps, acoustic guitars, acoustic pianos, Hammond Organs as well as kick and snare drums. It may not be the best mic for each thing I just mentioned, but in a pinch it will get the job done.

Nothing at all. It's a microphone to perfection. In a perfect world I'd like to see it get maybe a little bit hotter of a signal, but complaints at all.

The textbook definition of road worthy. I have some beat, I mean BEAT Shure Mics. I prefer to sing through my own mic since I know what it sounds like and well germs are a big factor, you want to stay healthy on the road. I have thrown it in back packs, dropped it, spilled drinks on it, put it in front of everything imaginable and it still works.

Henry Rollins can't even break this mic!

If you need a mic, this is it. Best $90 you will ever spend. There are a few cheap knock offs out there. Yes, you can get them for half the price, but they are not as durable or a nice sounding. Get the real thing, get a Shure.
