About This Listing

          Hello and welcome to The House of Chrome. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  If your a singer or drummer looking for something special with excellent sound quality and an old school style and flair then you might want to consider this classic Shure microphone.  This is the only 545L I currently I have and they sell so quick I can never hold onto these for more than a week or two. If you need one I suggest grabbing it before it's gone. It comes with the aftermarket mic clip and mic pouch.
 Pic # 2 is from an old 1970's era catalog showing this very model along with the other 545 variants.
 This is basically an SM-57 with the chrome finish and attached 20 foot cable. The sound on these mics are quite superb.  

 The Shure Brothers 545 model dynamic cardioid microphone has uber strong output and warm tone. This mic has excellent uni-directional characteristics. The signal strength on this old mic is 100%. Like new and absolutely no issues. Set at low impedance. The 545 had distinctive looks and was a radical new design for Shure Brothers when it was first introduced to the world in 1960 with it's bold, simplistic and modern layout. It's been said by many musicians that the sound quality of this particular microphone is the best bang for the buck. Perfect for vocals, broadcasting and especially drums.

 This example hasn't seen much use and it's in very nice condition. The polished chrome shows no scratches or scuff marks. Really superb. The Shure label looks great and completely legible.

 Please let the detailed pics be your guide. Mic is 100% solid. No loose parts. The front screen shows no dents or tarnish.

 The foam inner pop filter was replaced as the original was in bad shape. This greatly helps reduce the unwanted "pops" you get from breathing or singing to close to the mic. 

 The attached 20 foot cable is soft, pliable and free of damage. It comes with the male 1/4 inch end connector as well.

 Mic is an easy 9 + on a scale of 1 - 10.

 The Shure black vinyl mic pouch is included and in excellent shape. Great place to keep the mic while not in actual mic as it keeps dust, dirt and scratches away.

 The aftermarket mic clip is also included and a perfect fit for this mic grasping it nicely and giving it a wide degree of tilt up and down. It shows a bit of wear but pretty nice overall and works excellent.

 The 545 series is an excellent snare mic.


 As with all my vintage microphones and stands...

 And as always...
