A Remastered Classic
The Shure Super 55 Deluxe is not just a great dynamic microphone but an icon of historical microphone design that is steeped in cultural significance.
Back in 1939, Shure released the Model 55 Unidyne, which quickly became extremely popular, eventually known as "the most recognised microphone in the world" thanks to its distinctive grille and chrome finish.
Iconic historical figures such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King used the Model 55 Unidyne to deliver speeches and it was the basis of the microphone that became a favourite of the King of Rock 'n' Roll himself; Elvis Presley.
An Evolution of the Elvis Presley Microphone
Elvis himself used the Shure Model 55SH which is often referred to as simply "The Elvis Microphone".
Flash forward to the 21st Century and Shure bring you the Shure Super 55 Deluxe Vocal Microphone.
This incredible dynamic microphone benefits from Shure's nearly 100 years of microphone design along with modern specs while retaining the classic design from which it has evolved.
Super-Cardioid Microphone Tailored Specifically for Vocals
Specifically designed to be a vocal microphone, the frequency response of the Shure Super 55 Deluxe has been tailored to natural vocals and speech.
Allowing you to capture everything you need and push it as loud as you want, the Super 55 Deluxe has high gain-before-feedback and with its super-cardioid polar pattern it has exceptional off-axis rejection, so you won’t be picking up the other instruments on stage; just your crisp, clear and defined vocals.
Performance Focused Design
As the cartridge within the Super 55 Deluxe is shock-mounted, handling noise is drastically reduced while operation noise is even quieter.
Shure’s legendary design durability is present as always with the Super 55 Deluxe benefiting from a rugged die cast casing.
No matter how lively your set gets, this mic can take a beating and it’ll withstand all the rigours of the road.
The Super 55 Deluxe also comes with a convenient, zipped bag to add further protection during transport and storage.
Coming to you with a self-tensioning swivel mount, the Shure Super 55 Deluxe has 45 degrees forward and 80 degrees backward tilting so you can find the perfect angle for your own personal preference.
