Schure SM58

Is this Microphone Stereo or Mono?

Im just confused as #### - got it working up with N Track sweetly but just had some weird guy in shop going strange - I bought the Microphone online as it was WAY cheaper than the stores in my city…

Just not really up on microphones - bass and guitar is so my thing…

Whatever way this is surely a decent Microphone for recording as you guys recommended it?

Schure SM58? If you mean Shure SM58 then it’s not a stereo mic. Stereo mics are specialty items. Almost no mic is stereo. If that’s a real Shure mic and it’s in good condition then it will work fine for a starter. It’s a good overall mic to have. The SM58 is a low-Z mic so it will need a pre-amp of some kind.

What was he saying?

When i started to know a little about audio i believed that, by example, cheap microphones that soundblaster bundle with it cards was “stereo” microphones, because they have a “stereo” plug… well the mic is really a mono mic that need voltage. Some “phantom” mics use this “stereo” plugs, and that can create confussion.
Well, sorry if it is not the case.

The SM58 is considered by many to be the “workhorse” of professional mics. It is rated better for vocal use than its sister the SM57.

It is not a stereo mic and, as Phoo says, you will need a preamp with it.

Here is the Shure page for the SM58: http://www.shure.com/microphones/models/sm58.asp
