Shure Sm58 Microphone With Switch
Top Customer Reviews
The SM58 is now used regularly. The AKG D5 still competes and perhaps wins on smoothness and heaviness of sound, but the SM58 edges forward on clarity and accuracy.
Both are musical, powerful and rugged, but of the two the Shure SM58 is smaller in size and is much more resistant to feedback.
Ultimately, it is a matter of personal preference. I have SM58 days and D5 days and I use both when singing and recording. But if push comes to shove, and taking everything into consideration including the big price difference, it would be difficult but I would probably pick the AKG D5 as the overall winner. If price was not an issue, then I would declare the Shure SM58 the winner, mainly for its clarity and feedback resisting advantage.
This particular Shure model comes with an on/off switch. Unless you feel you really need that switch, you can buy the same microphone without a switch at a lower price.
This is a serious microphone, and you'll love it. Recommended.
I use it almost every day, it's been dropped numerous times and it's still going strong.
If you want to invest in quality a mic like this will never be a purchase you regret.
I find the on/off switch very useful and unlike other models of mic there is no audible noise when mic is being turned on/off.
My dad used his SM58 for about 35 years before it gave up the ghost.
I am hoping to go a few years better than that.
