Tailored for vocalists
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...
Built to last
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.
Beta 58A vs SM58 - What's the difference?
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.
"Excellent reliability, versatility, and great overall sound – and behold, it actually turns out to be the best supercardioid mic in the sub 200 category." - Microphone Geeks Beta 58A Review
"One notable upgrade is the move from a cardioid to a super-cardioid capsule. This gives the Beta 58 A an increased frequency response with a more pronounced high end, which helps vocals to cut through the mix without the need for additional EQ." - VoiceCouncil Magazine Beta 58A Review
"Using the Beta 58A on stage is a pleasure, as vocals cut through the mix much better thanks to its boosted output, coming across with good clarity and a bright midrange." - GuitarFella Beta 58A Review
