Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series Neutrik XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (20', Black)

The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (20') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. The 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

Shure SM57-LC Reviews

THE standard for Instrument Mics and a Great Bundle

By Robert
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-03

SM57s are THE standard mic for instruments. Of course you can buy specialty mics that sound better on specific instruments. For general stage use, though, you just can't beat a 57. This bundle is a great value. For only $10 more than the mic alone you get a stand (seems decent, if not super sturdy) and a mic cable (too early to tell how long it'll last but seems fine so far).

The one-and-only

For the price, get 10 or 12. Seriously, though... I bought my first one 50 years ago, it still works, and I just bought another one. And I'm sure it isn't the last one.

You can't go wrong with this mic

I use the SM57 for recording guitar amps, speakers in isolation cabinets and snare drums. Excellent construction and performance and Shure has kept the price at $99 for as long as I can remember. An excellent tool for recording.

The mic is great of course. An industry standard and first choice for most professionals to mic a guitar amp. I'm no pro but I concur - works fine for me! Handled vocals too. The rest of the kit (mic stand and XLR cable) is surprisingly good quality too - overall a great buy!

I'm a comedian looking for the best recording device for audience laughter. I have equipment to record my voice, but whats the best device for capturing as much audience laughter as possible?
Asked by: Anonymous
I disagree that one should use an omni mic for picking up audience laughter. Most clubs and auditoriums have PA systems, and you want to focus on the audience while not picking up the PA system. Therefore, you need a directional microphone that you can point at the audience and away from the PA loudspeakers. The SM57 will work OK in this application. So will other directional microphones.

Does this mic need a direct box when connecting ...

Does this mic need a direct box when connecting to a mixer? The mixer is a Yamaha MG if that matters.
Asked by: David
No. Use a microphone input on the mixer and use the trim or gain control on the mixer to get good gain from the mic. Not to much and not too little! Just Right!

I just got this shire package, but how come it has a low output? i don't know what the problem is. I triple checked everything is plugged in right and my settings are fine. My preamp is a Behringer Eurorack UB1204-pro and I'm using logic pro.
