Shure Beta 58A Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone

Image of Shure Beta 58A MicrophoneIf you are looking for a good all-purpose mic in the $150-$199 range and you mainly plan to record a single voice, you can't go wrong with the Shure Beta 58A. This also has an advantage of being nearly indestructible since it is not a condenser mic.

This microphone has a high-output neodymium element for vocal applications and does not include a cable.

The Shure BETA 58A is a high output supercardioid dynamic vocal microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. It maintains a true supercardioid pattern throughout its frequency range. This ensures high gain before feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off-axis tone coloration.

The BETA 58A has a shaped frequency response that is ideal for close-up vocals. The superb performance of this microphone is not affected by rough handling because of its rugged construction, proven shock mount system, and hardened steel mesh grille. Typical applications for the BETA 58A include lead vocals, backup vocals, and speech.

Features Frequency response tailored for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass rolloff to control proximity effect.

Uniform supercardioid pattern for high gain before feedback and superior rejection of off-axis sound.

Neodymium magnet for high signal-to-noise output.
