Shure’s history of innovation can be traced back to the 1920s when S.N. Shure began selling AM radio kits and components from a small storefront in downtown Chicago. Shure’s passion for creating the finest microphones and audio electronics continues to set the industry standard for superior, reliable products. With the introduction of the Model 33N Two-Button Carbon Microphone, the 1930s saw the company expand greatly and become one of only a few U.S. microphone manufacturers. The Model 33N was a lightweight, reasonably priced microphone in contrast to the industry standards which were much heavier and much more costly. The Model 42 was Shure’s first condenser microphone and the Model 99 Modulator was Shure’s first wireless microphone. The Model 55 Unidyne Microphone was the world’s first single-element unidirectional dynamic microphone.
War dominated the 1940s and Shure became an important supplier of microphones and headphones to the Allied Forces. The T-17B Microphone became the most popular microphone utilized by the U.S. Army and Navy. The T-30V Throat Microphone, HS-33 and HS-38 Headphones, M-C1 Microphone for oxygen masks, Model 100 Carbon Microphone, and Battle Announce Microphone were also manufactured for the military during this period.

The Vagabond 88, the first handheld wireless microphone system for performers, was revealed in 1953. It was powered by two batteries and the system transmitted within a “performance circle” of around seven hundred square feet. The Model 545 Unidyne III Microphone was the first unidirectional dynamic microphone that is used by speaking into the end (“end-firing”) instead of the side of the microphone.
The rugged, reliable SM57 Dynamic Microphone became extremely popular shortly after being introduced in 1965. It has been the White House standard for every U.S. President since Lyndon B. Johnson. Released not long after the SM57, the Shure SM58 (“SM” for “Studio Microphone”) was adopted by rock-and-roll musicians, who found it offers the right combination of rugged reliability and excellent sound quality. It quickly became the standard for live performance vocals. The SM58 is the most popular vocal microphone in the world to this day and is one of ProSound and Stage Lighting’s best selling products.

The Shure BLX series is an ideal wireless microphone system for those desiring legendary Shure audio quality, unbeatable battery life, and reliable performance combined with a simplified set up. Whether used in live performance or for speech, BLX offers musicians and presenters professional sound right out of the box with unrivaled microphone options including the SM58.
PSSL has a wide variety of Shure microphones and accessories but the Beta 57A and Beta 58A are always at the top of the best selling products list. The Shure BETA 57A is a high output supercardioid dynamic microphone designed for professional sound reinforcement and project studio recording. This ensures high gain-before-feedback, maximum isolation from other sound sources, and minimum off–axis tone coloration. The Beta 58A has a shaped frequency response that is ideal for close-up vocals. The superb performance of this microphone is not affected by rough handling because of its rugged construction, proven shock mount system, and hardened steel mesh grill.
