Take your vocal performance to a whole new level with the SM86 Vocal Condenser Microphone from Shure. Designed for professional use in live performance, this mic is great for singing and speaking applications and is also a great choice for stage or personal monitors.

The SM86 is constructed to be extremely durable to withstand the physical punishment of touring—all while consistently delivering a clear, studio-quality sound, performance after performance. It offers an extended high-frequency response (of 50 Hz to 18 kHz) that has been specifically tailored for the clear reproduction of your vocals.

This condenser microphone’s unidirectional (cardioid) pickup pattern ensures that you capture your vocals accurately while minimizing the pickup of unwanted background noise. It also includes an integrated 3-point shock mount that further minimizes handling noise (for a self-noise of 23dB typical, A-weighted), while a 2-stage pop filter reduces noise from wind, breath, and plosive pops. The result is a clear, faithful reproduction of your vocals, so your audience can enjoy your sound without any distractions.

Included with the SM86 Vocal Condenser Microphone are an A25D break-resistant microphone clip for easy positioning right out of the box, a /8" to 3/8" thread adapter, and a microphone bag for safe storage when not in use.
