Specifications Calculated porting in capsule ensures a uniform cardioid polar pattern across the frequency range for maximum gain-before-feedback. The stock transformer can be swapped for a unit from TAB-Funkenwerks, giving the SM58 a wider frequency response and a sound similar to the SM7; see TAB-Funkenwerks transformer upgrades for the SM58. Now is that something you want to accept so you can save a few bucks? 0000106639 00000 n /H 64 Compared to condenser microphones, dynamic microphones do not make use of phantom power.

Other than peculiarities in polar pattern, there are differences in grill shape, sound output, and noise filtration mechanism. As a result, even after a couple of drops, their microphones are able to function well for a long time. As a result, these microphones can pick up sound best from the front, good enough from the sides, and not at all from behind. November 19, 2020, Gemma Stenberg | 0000001467 00000 n The SM58 costs about double the price of the PG58.

It has an inbuilt pop filter that aids its ability to perform effectively. It also creates an airtight chamber to enable proper shock mounting and low-end frequency response. This is because it doesn’t produce too much handling noise. Frequency response refers to the range of frequencies that your microphone can pick up. The PG58 has a bit more overall weight to it, even though the SM58 is the stronger of the two.
