Shure 55s look

Is there anything out there being made with that old, Shure 55s look, but a more modern, SM58 type sound? I have not heard a 55s, but I am wanting something for stage use where one would normally use a 58 for vocalist, to complete an old fashioned stage decor. On the flip side, does the 55s sound anything like a 58, such that I could just buy some 55's and use them?

Example shown below...

Thanks,

KT

I know Shure "re released" this mic a few years ago... and the reissues sound pretty much like a 58 [I guess about as much as anything other than a 58 sounds like a 58... ].

I've used them on live vocals many a time with great results... hopefully you'll have similar findings.

Best of luck with it.

I remember hearing they put a 58 capsule in the re-release.

Another option is to find a shell on e(vil)bay and put what ever you want inside.

The singer in my band has a re-release one, and it does seem to have a similar sound to a 58...
