Shure and The Who have joined forces to produce a limited edition run of 300 serialized, custom painted 50th Anniversary SM58 microphones, featuring an original graphic design from Richard Evans, designer of Who album covers and artwork since the 1970s. These rare microphones will be made available at auction with all proceeds donated to Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey’s charity of choice, Teen Cancer America. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a piece of history while contributing to a worthy cause.
“As we take a moment to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the SM58, it’s important to look back on all that we have accomplished as well as the important work that lies ahead – made possible by the power of music and of giving. Shure and the SM58 have played a big part in my career, and we have joined forces on many charitable activities in support of teen cancer treatment thus far. It feels natural that we are working together on this auction in commemoration of this important milestone.” —Roger Daltrey
