SM58 Facts vs. Fiction— proximity effect

sm58 fact vs fiction - prox

sm58 fact vs fiction -  proxOur video series about the SM58® is designed to help our blog readers separate fact from fiction about this legendary microphone.  In Part 1, we discussed the myth “old technology”.  In Part 2, we discussed the myth that the SM58’s grille should never dent. In Part 3, we discussed the myth that the SM58 causes feedback.

In our final Part 4 video, we discuss the myth that the SM58 is not supposed to have ‘proximity effect.’

Get up close and personal with an SM58, and the sound gets all warm and deep.  It’s called ‘proximity effect’.  In this video, Shure’s Chad Wiggins explains that this is perfectly normal – and how a savvy singer can use it creatively.
