The Shure 55SH Series II Microphone is a legendary piece of audio equipment that seamlessly blends timeless design with outstanding audio performance.

An unmistakable stage icon for 70 years, the 55SH Series II vocal microphone features a signature satin chrome-plated die-cast casing for pure vintage look and feel. This microphone, often referred to as the "Elvis microphone" or the "Elvis mic," is an iconic symbol of classic rock 'n' roll and the golden age of radio broadcasting.

The Shure 55SH Series II is suited specifically to vocal applications, typically live performance, public address as well as for broadcasting, recording, and sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.

A cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern is employed to minimize 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.

Key Features

  • Classic Design: The Shure 55SH Series II Microphone boasts a retro design that harks back to the 1930s and 1940s, featuring a sleek chrome-plated housing with a distinctive, vintage look.

  • Built to Last: Crafted with high-quality materials, The 55SH can withstand the rigours of touring and frequent use, ensuring it remains a reliable microphone for years to come.

  • Cardioid Pickup Pattern: With a cardioid pickup pattern, it captures sound primarily from the front, reducing unwanted background noise and feedback, making it ideal for live vocals.

  • Integrated Pop Filter: The built-in pop filter helps reduce plosive sounds (like "p" and "b" sounds) and minimizes wind noise, ensuring clear and crisp audio capture.
