Shure’s SM58 turns 50
As part of the celebrations that Shure is holding to honour the 50th anniversary of its iconic SM58 microphone, a 50th anniversary edition has been released, featuring all of the characteristics and specs of the original. The SM58-50A Limited Edition microphone has a silver finish with the words 50th Anniversary circling the top of its body and comes boxed with a commemorative certificate, photo print, historical user guide, and a celebratory sticker.
‘The SM58 has been at the centre of unforgettable musical performances for 50 years and has left its mark on generations of audiences and performers,’ stated Shure product specialist, Soren Pedersen. ‘Truly, it was born to perform, and any performer who picks up an SM58 in 2016 can depend on that same great sound that so many have shared in. We are thrilled and honoured to celebrate this milestone.’
