Shure 55SH Series II Iconic Unidyne Vocal Microphone

The Model 55SH Series II microphone provides the Shure classic UNlDYNE® II design coupled with modern acoustic components to meet today’s performance standards. This microphone is excellent for vocal pickup with its characteristic Shure presence peak. This microphone is ideal for public address or theater-stage sound systems, as well as for broadcasting, recording, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desired.  The 55SH Series II microphone has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone. This allows these microphones to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones cannot.  These microphones are complete with a swivel stand mount base and an on-off switch.  Makes a great microphone for Emcees for Gala events, or community gathering, or ethnic concerts.
