Great for most venues

  • Summary: To my ear, this sounds 90 percent as good as an SM58. One caveat is, after many years of playing live, my hearing isn't what it used to be. Half the price and most audiences would hear no difference. Buy one as a spare and A/B 'em. You'll be shocked, rather, surprised at evquality.

Great little mic for the cash

  • Summary: Good clarity, very well built, sounds fantastic. Mine was supposed to come with optional on/off switch but didn't, not going to fret about it as it is a fantastic mic and the added freebies more than make up for it.

Great Value, Good Sound

  • Summary: One might think that the SM48 is no more than a cheap alternative to the 58 for those who can't afford the 'real thing.' However, it is a quite different microphone with its own strengths.

Excellent Microphone--nearly as good as the SM58 BETA I have been using for 7 years

  • Summary: When I needed microphones for my expanding band, my first instinct was to buy SHURE. I couldn't afford to get the ones I wanted, the SM58 BETA, so I found these SM48 mics which were more within my budget. Honestly, I was not expecting much from a fifty dollars microphone.

One of my favorite microphones. But it isn't for everyone.

  • Excerpt: The SM48 is a dynamic microphone with a cardioid polar pattern and a frequency response ranging from 70 to 15,000 Hz. Supposedly, it is best suited for backing vocals or spoken word. The frequency response(in comparison with other microphones) does tend to support the claim.

  • Excerpt: I use regardless of shure SM-48 and SM-58 microphones without distinction as songs. The record is constant, easy to set on a table, perfect for a live situation, at least for those I meet.

love shure mics

  • Excerpt: I've always known the Shure SM 48 was great, and have often used it for drums and guitar. But today I was in a session and the ONLY condenser I had brought started doing some goofy things. So I busted out a good old Shure 48, and recorded all the vocals, harmonies, and guitars with it.

User Review

  • Excerpt: The Shure SM48 is, predictably, the SM58's younger brother. I, however, resent this claim slightly. Sure, Shure's nomenclature and pricing would have any person who is not well read up on microphones believe that the Shure SM58 is simply a better version of the SM48, and I suppose in some ways,...
