The Model 55SH Series II provides the Shure classic UNlDYNE® II design coupled with modern acoustic components to meet today's performance standards.

The Model 55SH Series II 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. The 55SH Series II has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone.

This allows the Model 55SH Series II to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones cannot. The 55SH Series II has a low-impedance balanced output designed for connection to microphone inputs rated at 75 to 300 ohms.

The microphone features a cartridge shock mount to reduce stand noise, an On/Off switch, and an attached, self-tensioning, 5/8"-27 thread swivel mount. 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 desirable.

Highlights

•  Classic appearance, modern performance
•  Frequency response tailored for speech, vocals and instrumental music
•  Cardioid directional pattern for optimum performance in adverse acoustic environments
•  Shock-mounted cartridge minimizes stand-transmitted noise, ensures quiet operation
•  Rugged die cast case and mechanical design for reliability under rigorous conditions
•  Self-tensioning swivel mount, permits tilting through 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward

            Great mic. Built like a tank, it can definitely take a beating and keep on going. Classic look and sound. Keep in mind, it has a really tight pattern so you have to be right in front of it for it to pick up your vocals. Even though it has an on and off switch, I would still try to use your mixing board to bring your volume up or down. There is not another mic out there that is quite the same. This is a real hands on product review by Sean@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.

            Comments about Shure 55SH II Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

            This is a solid, great looking retro styled microphone that really gives off that classic rock'n'roll feel, and it is very well built. However, my experience using it for lead vocals in a loud rock band demonstrated that you cannot get nearly as much gain out of it than say a Shure 58a or similar microphone type. If maximum output is not a priority though this is a very cool looking mic and able to take a lot of abuse without taking on wear and tear or loss of performance.
