My sm58 has a low

This could be any of several things. IF the audio output of the mic is at a normal level then the first thing to check is the mic cable. I have several things to discuss so read all of this and then test.

First, I found six BRAND NEW XLR cables were wired wrong... the vendor had 13000 of them in stock and was going to have to check them all. The cables appear to work, but had the shield and one signal wire in the wrong place so the line was NOT a twisted pair balanced as required, but instead a plain coax. I had to repair these at a venue when I discovered the problem. Please google the correct XLR configuration. The pin numbering is NOT what one would expect. You cables (open the ends and look) should have the shield tied to pin 1 which is one of the side pins. Mine they had the shield on the middle pin or apex of the triangle.

Second, there are COUNTERFEIT Shure SM58's being sold. Read about that at google... If you unscrew the screen and find a label on the side of the element, the mic is a fake... Now there are two qualities of fakes... some perform ABOUT as good as the genuine, and others don't even have the balancing transformer.

If the hum is only there while handling the mic, the ground to the shell is not connected... this is mainly a mechanical connection. You can extract the XLR male plug from the bottom of the mic by removing the side screw and gently pull out by grabbing one of the pins. Also you can verify the wire colors as the fakes use the wrong color wires.

Noise problems are my specialty so if you need further help send a comment to me.

Microphone won't turn on

When you say "turn on" the SM58 does not normally have an on/off switch on the mike. Does yours? If so, bypass the switch. Did you try different cables or another mike on this one's cable? The SM58 is a very rugged mike but can be damaged. I'd make sure all cables, connectors, and such are good before suspecting the mike itself.

I get ALOT of feed back, why? I can't use it like that. I've talk with the a Tech and he said I needed to stand further away from the amp, which I am.

This sounds like your gain is too high. Adjust it down. Every mic has different gain settings so you can't just blanket this with the other one works fine. Is this wired or wireless?
