Why We Like Shure Microphones
American made since the 1930s, Shure mics are the standard for consistent performance. You might find better mics for specific applications, but nobody has showed up for more tours, club dates, broadcasts, sessions, conventions—you name it—than Shure. We sell a lot of Shure mics because engineers, producers, singers and musicians all depend on their smooth sound and rugged build, year after year.
