Old Style Shure Microphone

Shure microphone photograph taken with Nikon D3 body and 55mm lens. Used a 1000 watt Lowell DP light in a softbox, a 300 watt Arri fresnel light with a snoot, and three pieces of white foamcore for reflectors. Sepia tone and processing was done in Adobe Lightroom.

  1. This is my favorite out of the pics posted. Great lighting and processing and nice dof. This picture really sells and makes me want one myself.

  2. Thanks Brenton. Just want to say how much I appreciate your music. I play guitar on one of the worship teams at Calvary Chapel South Bay and we play your songs all the time.

  3. I must admit,this photo looks great, appropriate for marketing this mic. It gave the Mic real character. You should get paid big bucks for it. Thanks for the photo tips 🙂

  4. This is from Shure’s website describing the microphone…

    An unmistakable stage icon for 70 years, the Shure 55SH Series II Unidyne® Vocal Microphone features a signature satin chrome-plated die-cast casing for pure vintage look and feel with modern acoustic components to meet today’s performance standards. This microphone is excellent for vocal pickup with its characteristic Shure presence peak.

    The 55SH Series II microphone has a cardioid (unidirectional) polar pickup pattern that minimizes sound pickup from the rear of the microphone. This allows the Model 55SH Series II to be used in close proximity to loudspeakers without creating feedback problems, and it can perform under adverse acoustic conditions where omnidirectional microphones cannot.

    The 55SH Series II has a low-impedance balanced output designed for connection to microphone inputs rated at 75 to 300 ohms. The microphone features a cartridge shock mount to reduce stand noise, an On/Off switch, and an attached, self-tensioning, 5/8″-27 thread swivel mount. This microphone is ideal for public address or theater-stage sound systems, as well as for broadcasting, recording, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desirable.
