lucasd'airy's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not to let choked by dumping U.S. / Japan-China"

Shure SM57
cardioid, but very far from having a frequency response interesting decision, other than taking it live or is "easy to understand" the rest of the chain, but autrs microphones do this as well (BeyerDynamic:
- M160 one of the best Q / P band
- M600 excellent rendering with a Neve preamp to
- TG-88 if you wait a bit of time, you will have a micro pro 'in the pro'

Well ... that take the hit and + are interesting term)


We were all, I think, back to front and around the mic
I do not acquérai!
Made narrow, which tends to equalize the sound of the amp repeatedly '
The single thought: Shure SM57-610 in AU

When I wanted to dub for the first time my guitar amp, everyone told me to take the reference: SM57. impossible to have the sound of my amp, the sound loud and very stuffy, depending on placement, not to mention that it is very sensitive, he had to be returned dedant the guy in my little studio and ... In short I have sold much better with amp simulation. Today, I return to making his guitar, with more than average, and will compare them. program E906, M201, and SM57.
Well, this has nothing to do with these two microphones E906, M201, I have exactly the sound of my amp as a bonus with their lovely personality. All frequencies are presented spectrum is super wide, the 57 or has absolutely no stockings or medium low. but then why is there a micro reference: after talking to several sound engineer in the States, they said, was a shure mic cheap (implied bit expensive), but that works moderately full of different situations, in addition, it is robust to the scene, so everyone here is a set and actually buy the coup it is found everywhere, but we do not think it's a fabulous, the studios do not use it because its frequency range is too small (except for his metal lump in the upper mids makes it interesting coupled to one another). when I was told that in France everyone was that because c is a reference, He had a good laugh ...
To conclude this record, LISTEN, COMPARE, and do not buy this stupid micro (like me because they told me it was a reference). Target your needs for the scene if your budget is 100 euros OK, if you can put 50 euros more: Sennheiser E906 for the guitar.
If you want a versatile SM57 microphone for 175 euros but there is the Beyer M201 is really TOP.
