A legend in its own right the Shure 55SH Series II microphone boasts a classic look while providing pristine sonic reproduction and sensitivity response characteristics. The microphone features a dynamic capsule with a cardioid pick-up pattern which is effective in minimising noise and ambience at the off-axis sections of the capsule. As a result, higher gain before feedback is established when using near monitor speakers. Shure's classic UNIDYNE II technology combined with modern acoustic components provide a tailored signal response suitable for vocal performances, theatrical and public address applications. An On/Off switch is standard and a fixed, self-tensioning, 5/8"-27 thread swivel mount is also provided.
