It was 75 years ago today when Shure released a rugged, high-performance public address microphone called the Unidyne® 55. No ordinary microphone, the 55 gave the world the first professional tool to reproduce sound in vibrant tones and textures, without the complex setup requirements of other mics of the time. Beyond the microphone’s amazing sonic […]

Forty-eight venues. Yup. Count ’em. Forty-eight. In this our third year of sponsoring a week-long celebration of community music events that we call National Open Mic Night, our participating venue list is longer than ever. In previous years, when we announced the venues, folks asked us, “Hey, Shure, what about Club ABC in XYZville, huh?” […]

Okay, so I know I owe you a couple of blogs since we last spoke. Honestly, it’s been tough to find a quiet moment and the proper location to blog it up for you, the faithful Shure Mic Check Blog audience. The Staples Center is not the most conducive place to conduct any extensive computing […]

Like one of those churches that gets built in a day by an army of the faithful, the Shure booth at The NAMM® Show came together yesterday in a swarm of tightly coordinated activity. (We’re at Booth #6541, for those in attendance. Come say hi!) Shure Associates spent the day setting up display and demo […]

Contributor: Mike Major I have always felt that the best drum sounds are achieved when there is a seamless marriage of the close-mics and a stereo pair of overhead mics. There should be but one drum sound, not a collection of mics that are mixed together. It’s not as simple as placing a mic on […]

Covers songs can be the worst thing to ever happen or one of the most surprising things that makes you see a song in an entirely new way. I have a love-hate relationship with cover songs, which I think is how most people feel. I’ve been on a kick lately though and thought I’d share […]

Many words have been used to describe him. Poet, deep, witty, versatile, prolific, lyrical genius, underrated, unmatched, ambitious, multi-talented, driven, etc… But all those can easily be summed up by the title of his third studio album, “The Gifted”, which has topped the charts all summer and has received critical acclaim. Busting out of Washington, […]

There’s nothing like starting an internship when you’re young, smart, talented, and full of ideas…and discovering by the end of Day 1 that nobody’s interested. That you’re there to do the grunt work that full-time associates don’t want to deal with. Not at Shure. Often, Shure interns come back for multiple summers, and sometimes, they […]

“The one thing to remember is that you’re not working with a band that you like because they are your favorite band,” said Cory Lorentz. “You have to think about what is going to help sell Shure products. At the end of the day, that is what we are all here to do.” Artist Relations […]

Coming into all of this, I knew nothing of microphones. I knew singers and bands used them to create sound, but that was about it. Already I’ve learned a lot about microphones and all the little things that make each Shure microphone unique; however I know there are still many people out there like me […]

Ever since the beginning of college, I knew I was going to have an internship. Not only is it required by my university, but also I knew what a great starting point an internship could be when job searching post-graduation. I had heard horror stories of filing papers, running errands, getting coffee for your boss, […]
