The Shure SM58 is a dynamic microphone that can be used in either a live setting or the recording studio. While it is widely used in both situations, I have used it mostly in a live situation and have found that they are most useful in this setting because of how well built and long lasting these are. It has a sleek design that has almost become synonymous with what a live vocal mic looks like as it is perfect for holding and singing into. The SM58 is essentially the same microphone as the SM57 on the inside - the only difference is the grill on the SM58, which makes it more suitable for vocals. For this reason it has become an industry standard for live vocal mics because of their high sound quality, their sturdiness, and how cheap in price they are.


I've been using Shure SM58s for about seven years and boy can these things take a beating. I have seen ones that appear to have huge dents in them, but still work great. They are the top choice of a lot of touring bands as they can stand to take a beating and even if they get lost or stolen they are cheap and easily replaceable. These mics will definitley give you your moneys worth and even sound pretty great in the studio. In this price range I don't think I can find a mic that is as good or as reliable as this one. I'm Having a few SM58s around is always a good thing, no matter what you are doing musically. I recommend checking these out for live vocals or even for use in the studio. They're great all around mics brought to you by a great company with a great reputation for making high quality mics at reasonable prices.
