An unmistakable stage icon for 70 years, the Shure 55SH Series II Unidyne Vocal Microphone features a signature satin chrome-plated die-cast casing for pure vintage look and feel with modern acoustic components to meet today's performance standards. This microphone is excellent for vocal pickup with its characteristic Shure presence peak.
The 55SH Series II microphone has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone. This allows the Model 55SH Series II to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones cannot.

The 55SH Series II has a low-impedance balanced output designed for connection to microphone inputs rated at 75 to 300 ohms. The microphone features a cartridge shock mount to reduce stand noise, an On/Off switch, and an attached, self-tensioning, 5/8"-27 thread swivel mount. This microphone is ideal for public address or theater-stage sound systems, as well as for broadcasting, recording, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.

- Classic appearance, modern performance
- Frequency response tailored for speech, vocals and instrumental music
- Cardioid directional pattern for optimum performance in adverse acoustic environments
- Shock-mounted cartridge minimizes stand-transmitted noise, ensures quiet operation
- Rugged die cast casing for reliability under rigorous conditions
- Self-tensioning swivel mount, permits tilting through 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward

you can't beat the cool factor. Very good sound quality & built like a tank. The thing will not feedback at all. The volume suffers a wee bit but overall still worth it espacially if you have the pipes.

This mic I wanted for a long time. I usually use Senhieser mics,but since I got this this mic I would never use another mic. For the price and the look of the mic and the sound this mic rocks.

Product ExperienceI've tried it

I rented one of these for a small rock concert at a charity event, wanted to change it up a little since I always give the singers an SM58. This thing measured up to my expectations and then some. I expected a less good sounding, but cool looking SM58. What I got however was a whole different animal on the stage. I was running a PA with 4000 watts per side, and did not hear a single inclination towards feedback from this mic. I tried using it to ring out my mains, but I simply couldn't get it to feed back until I moved it right in front of the speakers. I gave up and continued the process with an SM58. When the show got rolling, the sound quality was amazing, crisp highs, nice low end, and punchy crystal clear mids. No problem whatsoever, I am going to buy one soon to add to my mic inventory.
