Applications for the Shure SM58 LC Vocal Microphone

The SM58 is ideal for close-up vocals and can be held in the hand or mounted on a stand. Some of the most common applications and placement techniques are listed in the following table. Keep in mind that microphone technique is largely a matter of personal taste - there is no one "correct" microphone position.

Lead & BackupVocals Lips less than 150 mm (6 in.)away or touching the windscreen, on axis to microphone. Robust sound, emphasized bass, maximum isolation from other sources.
Speech 150 mm (6 in.) to .6 m (2 ft) away from mouth, just above nose height. Natural sound, reduced bass.
200 mm (8 in.) to .6 m (2 ft) away from mouth, slightly off to one side. Natural sound, reduced bass and minimal background sounds.
1 m (3 ft) to 2 m (6 ft) away. Thinner; distant sound; ambience.

Place the stage monitor directly behind the microphone (see Figure 1). Locate the P.A. loudspeakers so that they point away from the rear of the microphone. With the speakers located in these positions, the possibility of feedback is greatly reduced. Always check the stage setup before a performance to ensure optimum placement of microphone and monitors



  1. Aim the microphone toward the desired sound source and away from unwanted sources.
  2. Locate the microphone as close as practical to the desired sound source.
  3. Work close to the microphone for extra bass response.
  4. Use only one microphone per sound source.
  5. Locate microphones at least three times as far from other microphones as from the sound source.
  6. Use as few microphones as practical.
  7. Place microphones far from sound-reflecting surfaces.
  8. Add a windscreen when using the microphone outdoors, for closeup speech, or vocals.
  9. Avoid excessive handling to minimize mechanical noise.

Jon Marx - Marx Music Studio
Simply the most reliable mic in the industry and has been since the 1960's. It's a tough mic...takes a lot of damage and still sounds fantastic. Still one of my favorite mics for a male vocal, and as both a contractor and a rental service these things matter to me.

Richard Langford - HighPoint Church
Reliable, great for vocal, instrument, self defense, etc. Nearly indestructible. Affordable enough so that you can have your own mic and not deal with anyone else's stinky germs. This is a must have tool.

the Shure SM58 LC Vocal Microphone is the best in the market, specially for vocals I've been using it for many years and I just love it!!
