Ever wondered the differences between the Shure SM58 and the BETA 58A? Both are industry standard microphones that are regularly seen on the touring and live band scene as they're both tailored for vocals and can handle high pressure levels. Both microphones are dynamic and are brilliant at rejecting unwanted sound including handling noise, making them ideal for live sound situations. The BETA 58A has a neodymium magnet, making it a higher output than the SM58 and gives you a brighter top end. The SM58 has a cardioid polar pattern, where as the BETA 58A has a super cardioid pattern. Want to learn more about polar patterns? Visit our resource centre.
So there you have it! Those are the differences.... Hopefully we've made it easier for you to make the right choice to suit you.

Dynamic microphones are still the bread and butter of most live music venues with the classic Shure SM58 vocal mic appearing on stages all over the UK. However with more and more microphone brands releasing microphones that focus specifically on frequency range, feedback rejection and reduced handling noise, are people getting more confident and using the condenser?
The Audio-Technica AE3300 is a cardioid condenser handheld microphone with ultra-low handling noise and describes itself as 'pristine audio quality, giving voice to the subtleties of vocal performance. The AE3300 is the new standard in live audio'. Something to think about? Visit our live vocal microphone page for more information on the Audio-Technica AE3300.
