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.

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,...
