SM58 Facts vs. Fiction—Part 2

Last week we launched a video series about the SM58® to help our blog readers separate fact from fiction about this legendary microphone.  In Part 1, we discussed the myth “old technology”.

In Part 2, we discuss the myth that the SM58’s grille should never dent.

Like scars on a heavyweight prize fighter, a bashed and bruised grille reveals the long, hard road that an SM58 microphone has traveled.  Like a bodyguard, the grille’s job is to take a beating to protect the “VIP” – the more-delicate microphone transducer inside.  In this video, Chad Wiggins explains why a 58 keeps working long after other microphones have gone down for the count.
