As the label implies, this is another one that features the same capsule as the famous Shure SM58, a testament to its lasting legacy.

This one is packaged with the SLX receiver, Shure's mid-range analog receiver which has 960 selectable frequencies and can work with up to 20 compatible wireless microphones.

The receiver also features a 5-segment audio meter for visual monitoring of your signal.

It has an operating range of up to 300 meters and comes in a 1U half-rack profile.

Note that If you want a Shure SM58 system and you won't need to expand beyond using 12 of them, then go for the cheaper Shure BLX24R/SM58.

Not many consistent complaints to report about the SLX24/SM58, but as expected there are a few who wish that it was more affordable.

The Shure SLX24/SM58 is a good wireless system for those who are looking to expand their wireless mic options.
