    Everything Shure makes begins with SM it's like saying " I have this car made by General Motors, is it good?" Now put down your beer and take a closer look.

    And just remember to put your seat belt on in case you hit a brick wall limiter!

    The SM58 is a good "standard" vocal mic. Not grand, but perfectly OK for many applications. I've read that Bono records with an SM58.

    It's not a good choice (IMHO) for quiet or breathy vocals, but for a stong voice it will do the job just fine.

    "Anything" is right! I had an ex shove a 58 up the tailpipe of my pick-up once and it kept it from turning over! It was hell getting it out, too!
