What is the Shure model SM58-50A?
The model SM58-50A, a limited edition of the SM58, was first sold in the autumn of 2016. It celebrated the 50th anniversary of the SM58 introduction.
The microphone performance is identical to the standard SM58. The appearance is different with the handle painted matte silver and "50th Anniversary Edition" printed below the ball grille.
The outer packaging is a recreation of the 1960s blue/red box. A historically inspired user guide is included, as is a special literature package with product photographs, a limited edition bumper sticker, and a message from Shure's CEO, Christine Schyvinck.
Supplied accessories: black plastic microphone stand adapter; black zippered carrying bag; Velcro cable tie; "Euro" threaded insert that converts the mic stand adapter to the smaller European standard of a 3/8" thread.
Minimum Advertised Price in the U.S. was $109.
