Unmistakable iconic stage mic with vintage look and feel.

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 shockmount 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.

Features
  • Classic appearance, modern performance
  • Frequency response tailored for speech, vocals and instruments
  • Cardioid directional pattern for optimum performance
  • Shock-mounted cartridge minimizes stand-transmitted noise
  • Rugged chrome-plated die-cast casing and mechanical design

A great vocal stage mic that delivers a style perfect for jazz, swing, rockabilly, and blues acts.

Classic Style Mic good in Live applications

Comments about Shure 55SH Series II Mic:

I bought the Shure 55SH Series II a couple of months ago. More as a trophy to myself, I'vealways wanted one. After getting it and testingit. I would say its best applications would befor a live stage performance, or public address. However, it is a stretch to say it works well in a studio atmosphere. It takes quite a bit of processing to get it to sound good. It's muchhigher in the mid-range than I expected. If I need a "filtered" sound in a recording that's theone to go too. I would have given the mic a 3 onstudio performance, but I added a star becauseit looks so cool.
