Perfect for singers on the way up, the SM48 has many of the benefits of the SM58® at a very affordable price. The SM48 unidirectional dynamic microphone is designed for professional sound reinforcement, studio recording, and broadcasting applications. It maintains a true cardioid pattern throughout its frequency range, ensuring high gain before feedback and rejection of off-axis sound. The tailored frequency response is ideal for vocals. A presence rise brightens mid-range performance, and a low frequency rolloff controls proximity effect. The SM48LC includes a shock mounted cartridge, a steel mesh grille, and an integral “pop” filter.


  • Cardioid pickup pattern rejects off-axis sound and provides superior gain before feedback
  • Frequency response tailored for vocals, with brightened mid-range and bass rolloff to control proximity effect
  • Shock-mounted cartridge for exceptional ruggedness and reduced handling noise
  • Built-in “pop” filter that reduces explosive breath sounds and wind noise
  • Supplied stand adapter and carrying/storage bag
  • Legendary Shure quality and ruggedness
