Shure Microphones: SM58-LC Cardioid Vocal and SM57-LC Cardioid Dynamic Microphones

Shure SM57-LC Cardioid Dynamic Microphone

SM58-LC Cardioid Vocal Microphone

shure-sm58vocalmic

Two legendary, industry-standard microphones from Shure, and one might ask: what’s the difference between the two? These classic workhorses are actually built on the same inner-workings (cartridges), but it’s the grille design that differentiates the two. The SM57 features an “integral resonator/grille assembly,” and it is better suited for picking up instruments. Not to say that the microphone has not beed used to record vocals—it’s all about experimentation and what your ears hear, which brings us to the SM58. The round ball grille houses a built-in spherical wind & pop filter, which are important when breath and “pop” noises are in question. As you might have guessed, the SM58 is ideal for vocal applications (live, recordings, podcasts, etc), but again, the same logic applies: it’s ok to test out the microphone for non-vocal situations.

The Box Score Breakdown

Every Tuesday we update our bestseller charts (“Lab Box Scores”) to keep you in the loop of what Labheads are buying. There’s two charts (music, non-music), and I’ll be analyzing each chart every week on the blog.

TTL Physical Storestagrams

These filtered photos aren’t just to floss the gear we trust and recommend.  When we post something, run, don’t walk, to the shop cause these goodies and #shopexclusivos can be gone tomorrow!

Shortly after TTLNYC posted this NI restock image, everyone’s favorite production hard/software combo flew off the shelves.  On the west coast, TTLLA keeps the Shure inventory deep at all times for your last minute Oh-Shit-I-Forgot-My-Needles moment.

A photo in a photo… so meta… @DJ_Jedi rocks that Homage “Cali” tee based off of their insanely popular “NYC” blocked lettering tee (so sweated on even that baby is demanding Jedi hand it over).  Available at the LA shop.  Meanwhile, TTLNYC sneaks in this #shopexclusivo of remastered Puerto Rican gems.

Come boy, choose life or death… or a just a really dope chess set.  If you choose LA or NYC you won’t join your mother… no worries.
