    Excellent bang for the buck

    I bought an SM57 primarily to record electric guitars. I spent hours with several other microphones and never really got a sound I was happy with until I tried the SM57. It was the clear winner after multiple position and amp setting checks.

    I also recorded some vocals with the SM57-- very versatile mic.

    There's a reason why so many people say so many good things about this mic. It's only a $100! Can't go wrong.

    I used it on this track for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeQ4J7vLdvI

    Good mic amp for concerts

    A microphone designed for the stage.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    A reference for decades, good for rock, a particular grain because it has a bump on the top mdium short, it is a micro adapted guitar, acoustic is not bad for its roots with folk genre dreadnought or 000, for voice is correct (choirs) and for the snare slap it well. Of course it is not a studio microphone on stage but it does the job could ask for more. The used price is reasonable, I find new pricey, but it's no surprises ...

    Basically this microphone remains a great value for the sound of a guitar and amp battery. For the rest I have not specially of experience.
    Personally I beeps battery (toms, snare and hi-hat with SM57. I use it also with the guitar amps.
    The sound is very good, it is easy to get a good sound and very nearly placed source, it reduces the influence of surrounding sounds. This is a reference number even if it is not the best forcment microphone. I mean the other microphones (ribbon, ...) will have more heat or other imperfections apprciables (more than character) while the SM57 is very used so it recognizes the b You (a majority of live concerts are…

    Here is the dynamic mic I use both for the stage, the studio (depending on style).
    Especially for brass, woodwinds, snare, guitar amp.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a long time and for a very long time. The feature I like most is its resistance to sound pressure and its very robust design.
    A quality / good price. I buy quite regularly.
    This is an extremely versatile microphone that can be found everywhere and it is "THE" reference microphone to have ...

    Dynamic microphone, specialized in making his instrument, but I also saw on voice (joe strummer at the time, for example) is very strong. Great on guitar amps (albeit with a slight time filter effect can be felt, but done with, it has its charm!)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I know for a long time, seen on stages and in almost every studio! The value for money is excellent, and the choice again, yes, the same achtant a pair for stereo plugs! I have several other mics, but this is the only dynamic in my home studio, it enters a pretty crazy sound pressure!
