Great performance microphone for lead vocals, backup vocals and spoken word applications.

The Shure SM48-LC microphone offers many of the same qualities as the famous SM58, but at a lower price. This unidirectional dynamic mic is designed for professional sound reinforcement, studio recording and broadcasting. It maintains a true cardioid pattern throughout its frequency range, ensuring high gain before feedback and rejection of off-axis sound. Frequency response is tailored for vocals with a presence rise in the midrange to brighten performance. A low-frequency roll-off is provided for controlling proximity effect. A shockmounted cartridge, steel mesh grille and an integral pop filter make the Shure SM48 tough and resistant to handling noise.
