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 (aged 7-19) was recorded entirely using this microphone. My imagination grew wings through the lens of this mic. I still use it today!"
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.”

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."
