Shure 55SH Series II Cardioid Dynamic Microphone

Every singer loves the "Elvis mic!" Get the look of 1939's Unidyne II plus Shure's modern frequency response -- great for live vocals, broadcast VO and more.

The Model 55SH Series II provides the Shure classic UNIDYNE II design coupled with modern acoustic components to meet today's performance standards. This microphone is excellent for vocal pickup with its characteristic Shure presence peak.

The 55SH Series II has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone. This allows the Model 55SH Series II to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones cannot.

The 55SH Series II has a low-impedance balanced out-put designed for connection to microphone inputs rated at 75 to 300 ohms. The microphone features a cartridge shock mount to reduce stand noise, an On/Off switch, and an attached, self-tensioning, 5/8" 27 thread swivel mount.

This microphone is ideal for public address or theater-stage sound systems, as well as for broadcasting, recording, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.

Sounds fantastic, looks cool. People comment on its classy look and how balanced out the sound is (crisp, good lows, great response). Amazingly good at reducing on-stage bleed through.
