        These things are awesome. Simple device with more utility than a Swiss army knife. You can't go wrong with these. Mic anything from drums to vocals to guitar cabs. Can't have enough of them.

                It's the SM57. You need at least one. Enough said.

                Buy it early, let it roll around in the trunk of your car for a summer and a winter, drop it a few times; and it will sound just as sweet as the old ones.

                You're going to pay the same everywhere. B&H deserves your business!

                    This microphone was purchased for church applications: recording and amplification of instruments and occasional voice applications. It is well-constructed and solid. I like the feel and robustness. I would not use this for pipe organ or grand piano music, but it is absolutely great for acoustic guitar and other instruments without significant low bass. Highly recommended.I like not having to fear an occasional drop or bump, something that is likely to happen in church use.

                      Provides excellent performance at a reasonable price. We use it to record my son's trombone auditions using a TASCAM DR-40 digital recorder. Easy to use and connect. Good performance and robust construction.

                            This purchase replaces an SM57 that finally gave up the ghost. It was a go-to voice mic for us for decades. Great response and frequency range. Sounded great to the last but a drop to the floor one last time did it in. This is always a good buy.

                              I guess what all the reviews say is true after all, the SM57 is a great mic. Sound's clear and responsive, this thing is built like a tank. Very good and durable mic overall.

                                I use this as a voiceover mic when on the road and not in the studio. Run it through a Tascam US-200 and then to my laptop via USB. It's built like a tank and a great full-bodied sound with good proximity and excellent off-axis attenuation. Love this mic...and for the bucks, love it even more! You can't go wrong!

                                  This is an exceptional microphone for the kit. In terms of bang for the buck it may be a best value. Good for vocals and instruments. It has been around for awhile. Works well for vocals and recording instruments. Considering the price, every audio kit should have one.

                                      legendary mic. Good EQ attenuation for many sources. Fairly high spl.

                                      I had some that were 20 years old and were beat all to hell. Still worked, but I think something internally was degrading, on one of them. At this price I just got two new ones and I'll use em for the next 20 years I expect.
