Shure Super 55 Deluxe Vocal Mic

Now, 70 years after the original Unidyne, Shure beefs up the classic 55SH vocal mic. The new Super 55 Deluxe features a high-output, Neodymium supercardioid capsule for higher gain-before-feedback; a robust internal shock-mount (to reduce stage/handling noise); and a vibrant blue windscreen — within that familiar triple-chromed body. The Super 55 Deluxe is now shipping at an MSRP of $300 and carries a two-year limited warranty. The current 55SH Series II model will continue to be available.
