Shure SUPER55 Super-Cardioid Vocal Vintage Microphone

The Shure Super55 super-cardioid vintage microphone combines a vintage look with modern performance. Offering you a microphone that not only sounds great but catches your eyes onstage. Housed in a classic satin chrome-plated housing reminiscent of the early days of rock’n’roll, with blue foam added for an even more vibrant appearance.

Although sporting a vintage microphone design, the heart of the SUPER55 is a modern super-cardioid dynamic capsule. Providing excellent sound while doing a great job of rejecting outside noise. So, get the best of both worlds when you sing into the Super55 vintage microphone!

The shock-mounted dynamic capsule helps to impede handling noise and vibrations travelling through your mic stand. While the super-cardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup of off-axis noise and ambience. Yielding higher gain before feedback as well as attenuated stage bleed. The SUPER55 delivers a frequency response of 60Hz to 17Hz, with a gentle presence boost peaking at approximately 6kHz. While the XLR 3-pin output ensures your vintage microphone is compatible with mixer inputs, mic preamps, and portable PA systems.

Tilt the attached, self-tensioning swivel mount up to 45-degrees forward and 80-degrees backward for ultimate versatility. And worry-less about damaging your microphone; the SUPER55’s chrome-plated, diecast construction gives you tour worthy durability. As well as a zippered bag for safe storage and travel.

Classic Appearance

Not only does the Super55 feature solid audio characteristics for both studio and stage – It also makes a great prop microphone when you need a vintage mic for your video, photo or theatre 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. Therefore, the Super55 is optimal for vocals, public addresses, and dialogue.

SUPER55 offers a Supercardioid Polar Pattern

Shure Super55’s super-cardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing sound pickup at the off-axis sections of the capsule. Ensuring high gain before feedback from your vintage mic

Shock-Mounted Cartridge

The dynamic capsule is shock-mounted for added protection against shock- and structure-born noise

Overall, the Shure Super55 is the ideal choice, if you’re looking for an improvement in sound quality, with a vintage microphone design – Another cracker mic from the Shure range. Perfect for both live and studio applications.
