Key Info

Shure 55SH Series II is a Unidyne Vocal Microphone has an Iconic design that brings a touch of vintage class to your performances.

Vintage design

If you recognize the 55SH, there’s a good reason for that. It’s been there for the moments music changed the world. When Billie Holiday sung ‘Strange Fruit’. When Elvis bought Rock n Roll to America. For each musical revolution, the 55SH was there. It is arguably the most iconic microphone in the world.

That classic look is preserved in the elegant design and signature chrome-plated casing. It is even improved with a self-tensioning swivel mount, that allows for easy adjustment mid performance. And while only a small feature, the on/off switch let’s you easily silence the microphone when you want.

A classic corrected

A tailored frequency response embellishes the unique character of your voice. A gentle high frequency roll off smooths sibilance (those harsh 'S' sounds) and adds a velvet texture to vocals.

Even better, the shock mounted capsule resists vibrations from handling the mic or stand. And the cardioid polar pattern rejects background noise, so your voice will always cut through the mix.

The off axis rejection also lets you perform nearer speakers or stage monitors without generating unpleasant feedback. Combined with Shure’s renowned durability, there’s a reason the 55SH has been at the heart of great performances in venues big and small. A true classic.
