Legendary microphone for good reason

By Taxi

Comments about Shure SM57-LC Microphone:

I have been using these as a touring live soundman/recording engineer since 1972. Simply excellent. With the Shure A2WS windscreen they are my first choice for male vocals. i am primarily an onstage monitor mixer and the SM57 rings out beautifully. For my entire, and very long, touring life with Robert Gordon it was the only vocal mic we used. Not recommended as a top mic on snare drums. It sounds great, but the drummers hit them and break the front off.

I've used this particular microphone for over 40 years. I've probably purchased 100's of these. It is a standard and is best for dynamic vocal and instrument applications.

Comments about Shure SM57-LC Microphone:

Not too much to say about, you just can go wrong with the industry standard. I got this to upgrade my old AKG D22 to use with my snare drum in my home studio

    Comments about Shure SM57-LC Microphone:

    This little mic has drastically changed my voice overs.

    For the past few months, I've been recording voice overs for videos with the shotgun microphone I use for field interviews but was not pleased with the ambient noise it picked up. Well, I am pleased to say that those days are behind me!

    The SM57 delivers gorgeous voice quality even in rooms that aren't ideal for recording. quite pleased

                  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!

                      Comments about Shure SM57-LC Microphone:

                      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.
