About: Shure SM86 Vocal Microphone

The Shure SM86 is a unidirectional (cardioid) condenser vocal microphone for professional use in live performance. An extremely rugged microphone, the SM86 withstands the rigors of touring while delivering studio-quality sound. The tailored frequency response of the SM86 reproduces vocals with clarity. A cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise. The built-in three-point shock mount minimizes handling noise, and a two-stage pop filter reduces wind and breath "pop" noise.

Features:

  • Condenser cartridge for studio quality sound
  • Tailored frequency response for a clear reproduction of vocals
  • Rugged construction withstands the rigors of touring sound
  • Cardioid polar pattern minimizes unwanted background noise
  • Excellent choice for stage monitors and personal monitors
  • Built-in three-point shock mount minimizes handling noise
  • Two-stage "pop" filter reduces wind and breath noise

Reviews: Shure SM86 Vocal Microphone


Jeremy W. - 11/25/2010

Pros:
- durable
- good range
- good pickup pattern

Cons:
- none

Comments:
As far as I am concerned, this is a better mic than the SM58. This mic has better pickup, is more flexible and looks more unique too. We are converting our entire mic lineup to these.

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
