The Special Edition Super 55 incorporates modern technology while paying tribute to the original Shure Unidyne – the first single-element unidirectional microphone – introduced in 1939.

Featuring a black die-cast case, supercardioid polar pattern, and striking red foam, the Special Edition Super 55 is ideal for stage, studio recording, podcasting, and other sound applications where a stand-mounted microphone with a classic look is desired. An integrated, swivel stand mount base and microphone bag are also included.

Features of the Special Edition Super 55:
- Modern sound: Tailored frequency response for natural vocals and speech
- High output: Neodymium magnet and output transformer for increased sensitivity
- Vintage design: Iconic chrome-plated design with vibrant red/black color combination
- Supercardioid polar pattern: Ensures high gain before feedback and excellent off-axis rejection
- Shock mounted cartridge: Minimizes handling/stage noise and ensures quiet operation
- Rugged die-cast chrome casing: Reliable under rigorous conditions

Pricing: $299 retail [$354 MSRP]
