Shure's Budget-Friendly Dynamic Vocal Mic

Give your live vocals that Shure treatment with the extremely affordable SM48 dynamic cardioid microphone. At 50 bucks, this handheld vocal mic is a steal -- the SM48's true cardioid pickup pattern and frequency response are perfect for vocals, and its shock mounted cartridge built-in pop filter work together to reduce handling noise, plosives, and other unwanted sounds that can ruin a performance. When it's time for your next performance, break out the Shure SM48 and know that your lead vocals, backups, and even other sound sources (try it on a guitar amp!) will come through crystal clear.

Tailor-Made for Vocals

A cardioid microphone, the SM48 picks up sounds from the front and rejects sounds from the sides and rear of the mic. Designed to provide excellent gain before feedback, this unidirectional mic works especially well when used with vocals and spoken word applications. Its frequency response of 55 Hz to 14 kHz is tailored just for vocals, with a bright midrange and bass roll-off to control proximity effect. In other words, your spoken words will come through articulately, with no muddy low end.

Quiet Operation

Handling noise is not an issue with this mic, as the SM48 sports a shock-mounted cartridge and built-in pop filter to keep environmental noise, plosive breath sounds, and other unwanted noises at bay. A steel mesh grille protects the microphone's sensitive internal circuitry.

Take the mic from rehearsal space to gig and back again with its included storage bag and handy stand adapter. If you want a reliable, high-quality vocal microphone and you're on a budget, check out the Shure SM48.

- Handheld dynamic vocal microphone
- Cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis sound and provides superior gain before feedback
- Frequency response of 55 Hz to 14 kHz, tailored for vocals, with brightened mid-range and bass roll-off to control proximity effect

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Shure SM48 Dynamic Microphone "
Overall: Purchased as a least expensive option to use with kids and an adult group with very little need for high end quality equipment. This microphone fits the bill for our needs. At some point we may look for better equipment but it seems Shure will be the company of choice as we develop and use more amplification.
Style of Music: folk, celtic,

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
