          The Mighty SM7B. One of the great all time vocal mics for sure. I use this thing all the time. It's a great mic to have in the arsenal. If I were only going to own one mic, it might be this one.

          Comments about Shure SM7B - Cardioid Dynamic Announcer Mic:

          I've been wanting one of these for some time now, and am certainly not disappointed! It's fairly heavy for a mic, so be sure to use it on boom stands carefully. Also, it's got a low output, being a dynamic, so a good pre with clean gain is a must.

              Clearly this microphone has some serious reputation. If you watch Youtube carefully, you can see this mic everywhere from vocal performances to radio broadcasters. A lot of people may be skeptical because of the price, but this microphone is a monster...so much power and ability. Matched with the right preamps and interfaces, this mic can put every mic in its price range to shame.

                I use the SM7B for recording male vocals and, occasionally, to do a podcast. This microphone has excellent presence and is very forgiving when used for vocals. The bass and the middle are smooth, and the highs are exact without being unpleasant. Little tweaking is needed to make it sound good. Highly recommended for similar uses!

                Comments about Shure SM7B - Cardioid Dynamic Announcer Mic:

                Used it for guitar and vocals, handled both like a champ, loud and quiet, even when my vocalist got a bit excited and literally started smashing his mouth against the mic while recording. Beautiful clear tone. I even A/B compared it with a vocal performance by the same singer from a prior take using a MUCH more expensive microphone and it totally stands up. I don't think you could get much better for the price. Definitely needs some preamp boost on the way in, though.

                      We are doing voiceovers for a project from our local museum. This microphone is phenomenal! Plosives minimized. A sound that is close to the one you hear in your head -- not the tinny one that makes you say, "I hate the way I sound." Great mic. And the price is so right!

                        This microphone is always billed as a vocal mic. I personally find it to have a ridiculous amount of other applications. horns, drums, cymbals, electric guitars, etc. I especially love it on saxophones. it gets an incredibly rich, full, yet clear sound out of them when given a couple feet of space and needs very little processing if any. a great addition to a mic cabinet. buy 4 of em!

                        I bought this mic to use in my home studio. The supplied windscreen really provides great proximity. The rear controls ("Flat Response", "Bass Rolloff" and "Presence Boost") are also very useful. If you buy this mic, try different settings in using such controls.

                        You'll need either a preamp or a mixer to get the best of the mic.

                            Lovely sound, very low output

                              Comments about Shure SM7B - Cardioid Dynamic Announcer Mic:

                              We use the SM7B as a voiceover mike, so the input level is relatively low (i.e., not drums, not screaming vocals). It has a perfectly lovely, warm sound, and exceptionally good isolation.

                              The isolation, however, comes with a price: Very low output level. Even +60dB of gain barely brings it up to a reasonable level. (Of course, you don't have to worry about clipping anything!) Be sure to pair with a powerful, and very quiet, preamp.
