Shure SM57-LCE user reviews

- Before I was using the Shure SM 57 LCE I was using an e609 which is an excellent dynamic mic too (I can't decide which I like better). After experimenting with different mic positions for an acoustic guitar, I found micing the SM57 close to the bridge and using a large diaphragm condenser by the 12th fret to be very clean sounding.
- Overall Opinion
- The SM57 LCE has has a great crisp, dynamic sound and the condenser mic fills the sound with warmth. As far as durability, I had no trouble with the SM57 LCE after having it for a year (Although, most dynamic mics are very durable). I also use this for micing the bottom of snares and I get the exact sound I want with this mic along with my preamp. If you buy this microphone, I highly doubt that you'll be dissatisfied. Great sound mic-ing guitar cabs, and excellent for live vocals. I have been using this mic none stop now for years! In the studio, it's not usually my first choice for vocals, but on some tunes, it actually sounds better than my $700 condensers. With all the hype in the music biz, it's nice to see something worthy of its reputation. The 57 LCE is the real deal and keep in mind that this isn’t the same as the regular Shure SM57 Mic, this is the LCE version there is a big difference in quality. You will be able to tell if you do a recording with them both then compare side by side. I choose the LCE version of the regular Shure 57 anyday as well. extremely versatile. It can be used live or in the studio. I have used it on vocals, guitar cabs, drums, horns, and acoustic guitar. Go for it, you wont be disappointed this things are on discount all the time online.
- This is a dynamic studio microphone used by many of the greats. Go into any old studio and you'd probably find a couple of these lying around because they're legendary microphones. They're known throughout the hip-hop production and vocal world as amazing microphones, so I wasn't surprised when I first used it.
- Overall Opinion
- What I like most about it is the price. The price is amazing, and you simply CANNOT get a better microphone for one hundred dollars; it's simply impossible to. Also, the sound is quality, clear, and on point. Whether it's being used for singers, rappers, back-up, ad libs, books on tape...it's perfect. I'm not going to hail this as a Neumann, but it's still an amazing microphone. I had owned close to 5 mics up to the point at which I got the SM57, and I still love it the same. It's a great microphone, and like a MIDI Controller to a music producer, should be a staple of any studio.

- I use it for two weeks in home studio to record the EP in my group. Located on the drum head snare for the attack on the rcuprer dernire.
I possde other mics on my drums (two OH Rode M3, a Shure PG52 bass drum, and three microphones Behringer Tom), I bought this for my OH SM is not sufficient to reproduce the attack my CC.
To use, I've never had a sound galr drinking with a microphone. The SM57 is just bad, worse than bad when you see the price ... Have to edit the legalization normment (add many AIGS) for crisp, clear ...
I keep it at the moment because I get to have one's drinking with my rglages (and especially my two Rodes Overhead catching up in the sound), but I tried the microphones down trs range (such as Behringer XM1800S 20 that made the unit as well ...
If you are looking for the sound quality to go your way, this microphone is certainly dynamic, but it is terribly low in AIGS among others, the sound sounds tuft APRS same alterations of the EQUAL ...), I really regret my purchase ... and I am growing by the Shure, there are much better for not more expensive cot ...
I do not certainly do it again this choice, besides, I do think the change fast enough or I bought it I do not know by what MODEL, but not Shure ...
