Question about Shure Beta 58A Professional Microphone

3 Answers

Hi. I use a beta 58 on live jobs. From time to time I have trouble with feedback. My back up singer use a standard sm 58 connected trough a tc.helicon voice harmonizer.That improved the sound of his mic, its a lot brighter now, but I am the only one with feedback problems. Why? We use mackie smr 450 as monitors and they are put in front of us. Should we face them from another angle? The monitors are further back on stage than the main speakers, so I suppose that is not the problem? We are fare from professionals, so any possible solution we will appreciated. I can always turn down the high tones on the mixer, but then again it sounds crappy.

Hi
tip
I have a beta 58 and in the box their is a little paper how looks like a triangle and it show you at what angle you should put the monitor to avoid feedbacks! The mic is supercardoide so the blind spot is not in front of the mic but at 60 degrees precisely. If you find the sweet spot for the monitors, I can guaranty you won't have any feedback.
look in you beta58 box for the paper
Good luck

Hi,

Just some tips.
Never put a monitor in front of the mic.
Your mic has a cardiod diagram, so put your monitor sideways of your mic.
At least about 30 degr left or right from the mic.
You can try a decent 31-band EQ to finetune your sound.
This way your feedback will degrease and not all the high tones.

Good luck,
Gerard

    The Beta 58 has a supercardioid pattern, not a cardioid pattern.

SM 58 Beta . . . I dropped it, now only highs come through, no bass.


You damaged the voice coil of the mic. You have to replace the element or buy a new mic.

Battery connection is broken on a SM 58.How do you get the components out after slip ring removal to repair the posts for a 9V battery?


Hi,

There are some clips inside, those are holding it together.
You can slide thin plastic in it which wil hold those clips.
After that you can slide the body off,

Good luck,

Do not like beta version of yahoo mail


Fortunately, if you don't like the Beta version you can switch back to the standard Yahoo! Mail easily, by clicking the "Return to Original Mail" link under the Help menu. You can also press the yellow Feedback button in the upper right corner to leave feedback about what you don't like about the Beta version, and maybe it will get fixed.

I know that the m-audio nova is a studio recording microphone , but i would like to know why it is not recommended for stage use ?


I would guess that the mic is a condensor type. These mics are much more sensitive to transients, and they tend to pick up a lot of ambient sound around them. In contrast, dynamic mics, such as the Shure SM 58 have become the standard live mic because their pickup pattern and response tend to be concentrated close to the singer, thus rejecting the ambient noise that condensors pick up. The live sound environment is very different acoustically than the controlled studio environment, and therefore, mics are chosen to accommodate the different acoustics.

The meshcover over the head came off. How do I get shure sm 58


Hi,

It's a hard job but you can glue it again, evry small wire must stick into the ring.
If you have a 2-component glue it will hold for a while.
Otherwise you can buy a new cover, there are also cheap imitations on the market.

Mic feedback. I sing on a shure beta 58 mic, into a 350 watt peavey amp, into 2 - 200 watt peavey speakers. My band is loud, and I simply cannot get my mic loud enough for them to hear me, without constant...


It sounds as though you are pointing the peavey at the band in a practice situation? If so make sure that each speaker is at about 60 degree angle to either side of the back of the mike (you facing the speakers), most mics reject feedback when the the user is directly in front of a monitor, but Beta 58s' tend to feedback more in that situation. Alternatively (if it is a practice room situation), why not place the speakers behind the band at 60 degrees each and turn to face the band.

Benimur, you are correct, except that the Beta 58 is a condenser mic that required phantom power. In that case all 3 lines are used. Included below are the connections.
