I drug a beta 58 around for at least 10 years without fail. Always used it as the lead vocal mic because it was hotter than the regular 58’s. Maybe they don’t make them like they used to. YMMV.In my post above it was a 58 Beta that failed resulting in us doing comparisons. On a side note that mic took way less abuse than the other brands above by never traveling to gigs.
Sure it might be rare but at $160 a pop and considering the beating band mics take I'd recommend exploring other comparable options before laying down cash.
Side note #2
Careful if you do buy a Shure. There's plenty of counterfeits.
