Projects > Michael Joly Engineering ES-58 Mic Mod
Michael Joly’s quick, easy, and free dynamic mic mod focuses on inexpensive SM58 variants that utilize a plastic disc in front of the microphone’s magnetic coil assembly to attain the characteristic “presence peak” that these microphones are known for. By removing this disc, which resonates at that frequency range, the mic produces a flatter response. The disc can also be modified by partially covering the holes with custom patterns that can be experimented with, to achieve a different frequency peak.
