The Cheapest Microphone I would use on Stage or studio
In my opinion this should be the microphone that everyone should be using for a bare minimum; for the stage and the studio. I've done sound and seen countless live concerts where the old SM58 is used. That mic just can't cut it live anymore; unless you like sounding like mud/don't want to be heard in metal. The Shure Beta 58A is built for war and made to cut through on the top end. This microphone has a hardened steel basket filter that will cause more damage than be damaged. This mic made me forget about the old SM58. The quality is almost the same as a lower/mid-range condenser mic for for clarity. This is impressive since this a passive dynamic style. This is a similar sound compared to a AudioTechnica AT2020. I love this mic and have been using it for about four years live and studio.
Best Mic for live performances you can afford
It is without a doubt the best microphone I have evert used to play live, in comparison with the SM58 (its little brother), this mic has a wider dynamic range capturing more high-end. It also makes you sound louder than the SM58. Overall, an amazing microphone for vocal applications.
The most reliable mic, sounds good in every room.
I won the Shure "Give It Voice" contest for the Southeast US region, and received a customized Beta 58A. Been using it ever since. After a thousand or so gigs, I can honestly say it sounds great in every room. Never had a moment where I thought "hmm, wasn't crazy about my voice tone tonight."
