Shure SUPER55 Super Cardioid Vocal Vintage Microphone
The Shure Super55 Deluxe dynamic vocal microphone combines vintage-style looks and modern performance, giving you a great-sounding mic that’s a real eye-catcher onstage! Housed in a classic satin chrome-plated housing that hearkens back to the early days of rock ‘n’ roll, the Super 55 Deluxe adds blue foam for an even more vibrant appearance. The heart of this mic, however, is completely modern — a supercardioid dynamic capsule that provides excellent sound while rejecting outside noise very well. You get the best of both worlds — vintage and modern — when you sing into the Super Deluxe 55!
This 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
Tailored Frequency Response
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
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
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
The combination of updates make the Shure Super 55 the ideal choice when looking for a dramatic – yet affordable – improvement in sound quality with an unmistakable vintage design. Another cracker mic from the Shure range.
