Just last month, we wrote an article about the Legendary Sound of Shure SM microphones. And few Shure mics get more legendary than the 55 Unidyne model, which was used by everyone from Elvis to President John F. Kennedy, and that now gets a 75th Anniversary reissue, the Shure 5575LE Unidyne.
Like the original Shure 55 stage microphone, the 5575 LE is ideally suited for vocals and speech.
The new reissue, out in the New Year, celebrates 75 years of the iconic microphone, which made its public debut in 1939 and went on to become the most recognisable microphone of all time, being used by famous figures such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and even Fidel Castro!
The 5575 Unidyne 75th Anniversary Cardioid Dynamic Microphone comes in a suitably luxurious package, as you can see in the pic below:
The package includes:
Serialized limited edition of 5,575 units
Original large “birdcage” grille enclosure
Retro desk stand (zinc die-cast with silver finish) with 1 m right-angle XLR mic cable
Aluminum flight case with 75th Anniversary logo branding
Certificate of Authenticity features matching serialization and a tribute from Rose L. Shure, Chairman, Shure Incorporated
Unidyne Photo Prints: Full-color print of 5575LE and black & white print of vintage 55 Unidyne
