This year on the 5th of August, we’re celebrating the world’s most iconic microphone, the Shure SM58!
The SM line, which originally was short for Studio Microphone, was first developed in the 1960s, and were aimed at the TV studio market, with a non-reflective finish and no on/off switch. Rock and roll sound engineers discovered the SM58 and SM57 in the late 1960s, and made these models famous worldwide as onstage performance microphones. From the rigours of touring to attempting various ways of destroying them, the SM58 can take a beating, and it’s no wonder why musicians trust this legendary microphone.
Celebrate with us and stay tuned for our exciting upcoming online events, competitions and giveaways!
