Beta 58A vs SM58 – What’s the difference?
Firstly, the polar pattern. The SM58 has a cardioid polar pattern, whilst the Beta 58A’s is supercardioid. This gives the Beta better side-rejection, and the SM better rear-rejection. However, supercardioid also gives more directionality, and is much-less susceptible to feedback when positioned correctly. The Beta 58A also features a Neodymium magnet, providing higher sensitivity and an output that is 4dB hotter than the SM58.
There’s also a difference in frequency response. The Beta boasts a slightly extended low and high-end, which provides extra detail and definition to the SM. And with a new advanced pneumatic shock-mount system, the Beta 58A also offers lower handling and mechanical noise.
“Excellent reliability, versatility, and great overall sound – and behold, it actually turns out to be the best supercardioid mic in the sub 200 category.” – Microphone Geeks
“One notable upgrade is the move from a cardioid to a super-cardioid capsule. This gives the Beta 58 A an increased frequency response with a more pronounced high end, which helps vocals to cut through the mix without the need for additional EQ.” – VoiceCouncil Magazine
“Using the Beta 58A on stage is a pleasure, as vocals cut through the mix much better thanks to its boosted output, coming across with good clarity and a bright midrange.” – GuitarFella
