This is a photo of the ubiquitous Shure SM58. This mike has been a great workhorse for many years, and is still a very good microphone. Many experienced artists still feel extremely comfortable using this mike, as they know through experience, how it will behave. It was introduced in 1966 though and has therefore been in the business longer than I have, which is really going some. In that time though technology has changed dramatically though and there are many better sounding mikes on the market. these days. This mike is still great if you have a raucous, rock-style voice, but is not as well suited for lighter, softer voices.
