Review: Destroying the Shure SM58

This isn’t really a review… this is just a collection of video’s showcasing people attempting to destroy the bullet proof Shure SM58. Enjoy.


Here is a YouTuber who buried one in the ground for a year, uses it for a hammer, washes it in the sink…. And then test it’s pickup response using pink noise.

And this may be my favorite microphone shootout ever.


It seems like the Shure SM58 might really be the toughest built microphone ever. Do you have any stories about an SM58 surviving a huge mishap, leave a comment below.
