Shure Super 55 Supercardioid Dynamic Microphone - Chrome with Blue Foam

Overview

Presented in a chrome casing with blue foam, the Shure Super 55 is a supercardioid dynamic microphone boasting a classic look and vocal-tailored sound for recording sessions, live stage applications, podcasting, and on-camera use. The dynamic cartridge is shock-mounted to impede handling noise and vibrations transferred through your mic stand. The implementation of a supercardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup of off-axis noise and ambience, yielding higher gain before feedback and attenuated stage bleed. The mic delivers a frequency response of 60 Hz to 17 kHz with a gentle presence boost peaking at approximately 6 kHz. Its XLR 3-pin output ensures compatibility with most mixer inputs, microphone preamps, and portable PA systems. The attached, self-tensioning swivel mount can be tilted up to 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward. Chrome-plated, die-cast construction provides tour-worthy durability. It ships with a zippered bag for safe storage.

In addition to being a mic with solid audio characteristics for the studio and stage, the Super 55 makes a great prop microphone in video shoots, photos, and theater applications. The 60 Hz to 17 kHz frequency response features a slight dip in the low-mid frequency range and a gentle rise above 1 kHz, making its sonic performance optimal for vocals, public address, and dialog. The supercardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing sound pickup at the off-axis sections of the capsule, ensuring high gain before feedback. The dynamic capsule is shock-mounted for added protection against shock- and structure-born noise.
