"You Can Be Assured of Quality With A Shure!"
Nothing will take me away from owning a Shure Beta SBA
I write many songs and have always used a Shure SM 58 for scratch vocals--- that is until someone broke into my studio and snatched it! Sooo I needed a replacement and decided to give the Beta 58A a try, since I had read about its performance. I have actually gone on to KEEP some of my scratch vocals when I actually record, which would have been unheard of in MY past!
It would be great if this mic came with a grille (head) cover-- they should be a MUST-HAVE, but obviously not everyone thinks about the effects of condensation, etc.
Ease of Use
The Shure mics are not only versatile, they can stand up against the monster recording mics! EVERYONE knows that there is not a band out there playing, from Dubai to Memphis or Seattle and all places, from clubs to outdoor venues, who do NOT use Shure 58s for their live (and recorded live!), performances! They rock, they roll, they do it all and keep every band and their fans coming back for more!
Shure has been around for a long time and I hope they stay that way! I know I am not alone in my feelings.
I had one problem, a loose wire that created a short, so after using an EV to finish my performance, the next day I called the store where I had purchased my SM 58 and they replaced my mic, no questions asked! The store where I purchase most of my equipment keeps all my warranty and service records on file (a good idea, because they also registered my equipment for me), and made sure I was well taken care of.
The Wow Factor
There is NOTHING like the look and feel of an SM 58. I own many mics for different purposes, but I depend on my Shure! For SURE!
