92 out of 100. Incorporating 550+ ratings and reviews.

Gearank Recommendation

The PGA58 appeared on our recommended list for Dynamic Microphones from June 2020 until May 2021.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Live Vocal Mics.


Despite the similar numbering, the PG58 shares very little with Shure’s classic SM58.

This doesn’t mean the PGA58 is a slouch.

It still shares the same rugged build quality of its more expensive brother (albeit in a slightly different form factor).

The PGA58 is a great value microphone for those looking for a mic (or multiple) to use live without worrying about durability and sound quality.
