With Shure’s Performance Gear series of microphones, you don’t have to spend a fortune to sound like a million bucks! The little brother to Shure’s hugely popular SM58 vocal microphone, the PG58 is the “unsung” hero of band rehearsal spaces, school music programs, church events, and open mic nights everywhere. If you’re on a budget — and let’s face it, who isn’t? — Shure’s affordable, sturdy PG58 microphones are the perfect place to start. So go ahead: outfit your garage band, stock up your coffee shop, or just bust out some living-room karaoke in style. With microphone cables and stands included in zZounds’ money-saving Value Packs, the PG58 microphone is a no-brainer choice.
Legendary Shure Quality
When gear-savvy musicians talk microphones, Shure is bound to be mentioned among the best and brightest. No mic locker is complete without a healthy dose of legendary Shure quality and performance. Their Performance Gear series is the perfect introduction to one of the best microphone manufacturers on the planet.
Engineered For Vocal Performance
All of Shure’s Performance Gear microphones are engineered for specific applications, both on stage and in the studio. While other mics in the series are designed for instrument use, the PG58 is frequency-tailored to bring clarity and presence to vocals. Just like the SM58 before it, the PG58 handles a frequency response of 60-15,000 Hz — wide enough to handle any voice. Low-frequency roll-off with carefully boosted midrange help voices cut through, effectively communicating your message and keeping the audience engaged with your songs or spoken-word performance.
Cardioid Pickup Pattern
In a live-performance setting, a lead singer tends to move around the stage quite a bit. With all the sound leaking in from stage monitors and main speakers, feedback from the vocal mic can be difficult to deal with. Fortunately, the PG58 uses a cardioid pickup pattern to prevent off-axis sounds from entering the mic capsule. Your singer is free to roam wherever they like without worrying about creating a feedback loop. In the studio, this narrow pickup range is great for isolating audio to individual tracks. If the drums are bleeding into the vocals, it can be difficult to boost the singer’s level without having too much of the drums in the mix. The cardioid pattern keeps the drums out, making it easy to adjust the vocals while the instrument levels remain unchanged. You’ll definitely appreciate this added control as your mixes get tighter and clearer. The integrated on/off switch also prevents feedback and track-bleed when the mic is not in use — and saves you headaches when you’re gigging without a sound guy.
This mic is built to take abuse and still perform to perfection. The rugged metal housing and steel mesh grille protect the internal components from damage, no matter how crazy things get up on stage. An internal shock mount system limits handling noise caused by moving the microphone or adjusting the mic stand, and Shure’s integrated filter reduces vocal pops and breath noise before they can ruin a recorded track. The mic capsule contains a neodymium magnet for boosted signal levels, plus a beefy coil to handle sound pressure level (SPL) up to 94 dB without distortion. You can check the PG58 off your list of things to worry about and spend your time tightening up your set.
Comes With Everything You Need
Your PG58 package includes a break-resistant mic clip, soft zipper storage pouch, and a 15-foot cable of your choice: standard XLR mic cable, or a handy XLR to 1/4-inch TRS cable for PA systems with 1/4″ inputs.
