Jacob Collier + SM58

"SM58 - Ah, the mic that started it all! My first ever microphone. It holds a very special place in my heart. Every voice and instrument for the first 12 years of my recording life  was recorded entirely using this microphone. My imagination grew wings through the lens of this mic. I still use it today!"

Claudia Emmanuela​​​ + SM86

“Picking it up for the first time, I immediately noticed how good and comfortable the SM86 is in my hand. The positive impression continued when I used the microphone in a live context. It fits the character of my voice perfectly.”

Ric Wilson + KSM32

“The KSM32 has a smooth tone to it that gives it this great sound for recording but also could make the best sounding live microphone ever. I would recommend this for live streaming and live recording albums.”

Luis Fonsi​​​ + BETA 58A

“After making many tests, my sound engineers and I chose the Shure Beta 58A, because being a “supercardioid” capsule, it’s more directional. It doesn’t pick up too much ambient noise, and the voice sounds cleaner and clearer.”

Amber Liu​​ + SM58

Joesef + MV51

“I write quite erratically and sometimes when ideas come you need to get recording quickly, so Shures MV51 is great for just plugging in and getting going. You can plug it into your phone as well so can take it wherever and still retain studio quality audio recording, its class.”

Pixey + PGA58

"The PGA58 is such a good mic for singing lead vocals on. When I’m performing there can be a lot of unwanted background noise, especially when I’m moving around on stage, so the mic is great for bringing out my vox without compromising the quality. I’d definitely recommend it."

Boy in Space + SM7B

"The SM7B allows for a lot of dynamic range. For a singer that uses my mix voice a lot it’s perfect. I don’t have to push my vocals to get presence."

Benee​​​ + KSM8

“I’ve always loved Shure microphones and having different capsule options is cool. I switch between the KSM8 and KSM9 depending on stage layout and venue.”
