Be heard. When you're up on stage, you want your vocals to shine. With the Shure Beta 58A, they'll do exactly that.
Don't let your vocals just sit in the background, let them take centre-stage. Give them authority. The Shure Beta 58A does exactly that. This premium microphone delivers pure, unadulterated sonic excellence that has been tailor-made for vocals and speech. No exaggerated highs, and no loose or muddy lows. Just consistent sound across the entire vocal range, letting you take full control of your performance.
A natural presence boost at 4kHz and 9kHz provides clarity and intelligibility for your voice. Combined with a high-sensitivity design and a brightened mid-range, you can be sure your vocals will cut through the mix like never before. And with a slight bass roll-off, you don't have to worry about the proximity effect wreaking havoc with your sound.
Plus, with a built-in pop filter for minimising breath and wind noise, and an integrated pneumatic shockmount that significantly reduces handling noise and vibrations, this mic is perfect both on a stand and in your hands.
From John Mayer and Roger Daltrey, to Childish Gambino and Lorde, this mic has become the go-to choice for countless legends for a very good reason...
You thought your SM58 was strong? The Beta 58A goes even further. With a rich history of creating gear you can rely on for life, Shure certainly know how build a microphone that lasts. The Beta 58A is no exception. A solid metal housing keeps the precious internal components safe, whilst a new hardened steel mesh grille makes dents a thing of the past.
This mic is built to withstand extreme conditions. From being kicked around, knocked over, and thrown into boxes and vans, your gear goes through a lot. That's why the Beta 58A is built like a beast. Night after night, year after year - this truly is a microphone you can trust.
Firstly, the polar pattern. The SM58 has a cardioid polar pattern, whilst the Beta 58A's is supercardioid. This gives the Beta better side-rejection, and the SM better rear-rejection. However, supercardioid also gives more directionality, and is much-less susceptible to feedback when positioned correctly. The Beta 58A also features a Neodymium magnet, providing higher sensitivity and an output that is 4dB hotter than the SM58.
There's also a difference in frequency response. The Beta boasts a slightly extended low and high-end, which provides extra detail and definition to the SM. And with a new advanced pneumatic shock-mount system, the Beta 58A also offers lower handling and mechanical noise.
