Quite often we relate quality to price. The highest quality products cost the most amount of money. But this is not necessarily always true. Some of the best audio equipment is the stuff that has been around long enough to to stand the test of time.
I would like to introduce you to the Shure SM58 microphone.......You probably already know what it is.
Many sound engineers refer to this microphone as the best ever made. It is extremely durable, versatile, and has some of the best acoustic characteristics of any microphone used for live sound.
For the past 40 years the Shure SM58 has been the go to microphone for audio professionals all over the world. With a street value of roughly $100 no production crew is complete without at least 10 of these guys.
So i set out on the web to find out why exactly this microphone is such a staple in the audio community. I found 2 YouTube videos that summed it up quite well.
WOW!!! That was quite entertaining!!!
The next video I want to show you really sums up why the SM58 is the toughest microphone in the world.
After all that abuse..............It still works!
