Shure SM57
Micro to do everything known to all


Used since 2010 for miking acoustic guitar and amp and rarely singing.
Indestructible material and goes everywhere, it's pretty cheap (<100 €)

Baby.Studio's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Shure SM57
With the SM58, SM57 and now the (new generation) the Beta 52 A you sound quality for each reference in their specialty, SM58 for vocals on stage, SM57 devand the amp, the instruments. Wind, snare, percu ... Beta 52 A For the bass drum in the studio to try on a bass (original) in addition to a cell too neutral


The perception of sound changes depending on the evolution of techniques of listening: Mp3, his computer, in car ... that is why we must always bear in mind the sounds of references and this is where the Standrd is essential

supermike12's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good for almost everything ..."

Shure SM57
Micro found almost anywhere, from studio to stage. It sounds good in almost any situation, despite the fact that the cut above the 15khz (cymbals??)

Note that this is the same cell as the sm58, whose windscreen reduces the gain slightly (source site shure englais)


small problem, however, the plastic capsule around the mobile micro us to pose some problems for a transplant against garbage. Indeed, by making close, low frequency is likely to move the capsule. parasite noises are heard .... So

good but not mic the instruments to wholes: Beware!

AceLeppard's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A reference!"

Shure SM57


I know nothing about science and studio recording. I bought this mic because of its specific character, in an emergency. It is compact, practical, feels solid and well built. I've used so far only two days to record the guitars in the studio, although I often see for years, it is widespread.
The sound I looked pretty good returned, and microphone placement greatly influencing the sound, which encouraged me to experiment. Well whatever the investments, except for a slight lack of bass for my taste, and a hard-edged mitigable. I guess that's also what makes his character ...
For a beginner, I think it is a very good choice, a great value, in short.
I planned to buy a 58 sm to deal with all situations.
The quality / price looks good to me, and I would do this choice.

angelbled's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" S HOW TO PROCEED??"

Shure SM57
Micro gray with a grid (see data sheet is all in)


A super versatile micro ... I record the guitar, snare, tom, washing machine (ehu not) ... Finally I think that there is no better value for money?? And besides it never moves. I think I have five and two that breed ... My first in more than 10 years he has been flogged to wand ... the poor must be taken even what he has and it works .. nickel;
Here all is said

Noise level, it's not good it is on the Royer in 1200 euros but at least when it falls it still works ...

Guiloux666's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Shure SM57
SM57 miking snare, toms, guitar amps and possibly chorus (if no other mci on hand)


6 years


Sound very guitar-oriented (for transplanting amp) and his attack on the toms and snare (supports necessary gate on the snare)

Very good value for money, "above is the sun ..."

alexOgeorge's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" PIN PIN PON PON"

Shure SM57
Dynamic microphone, cardiodïde for making his instrument (among others)
Aillant the distinction of being not fat, not heavy, reliable, sturdy and not extraordinary ...
Mic in 100 balls, to buy anything more! THE MICRO AMBULANCE advice for those who want rude.

Not miraculous, but does the job in a lot of circumstances, and it is already well compared to others. What is a ref!


I often used in performances, or at home to save.
It is a microphone that is suitable for any type of decision, and I took to do everything and anything.

If it does not catch too much feedback is that it does not look far. So taken for proximity. Do not we stick them in Overhead over a battery (except if it is a style so there ...)

It to the famous triple bump between 3 and 5 kHz (from memory) which is quite "practical".
It is easy to detail what you want to mix with the decision made in SM57.

Value for money ... at the top.

Buy, buy.

andymorton's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good mic amp for concerts"

Shure SM57
A microphone designed for the stage.


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 ...

blue.not's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Effective"

Shure SM57
I use it to transplant the guitar amp, but also sometimes to sing with a talkbox (shape lends itself well).


I use it for several years, I have chosen for its reputation. I have not tried many other pickups, and I'm not an expert ... and then the record is sent on the front so I can not have a serious decision. But this is a reference microphone. Other musician friends use it and it sounds great.

Parker75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A possder park in any good microphones"

Shure SM57
Versatile dynamic mic, but I only use it on guitars amplified


I use it for my beginners in the studio.
It is a microphone that always makes me service when I took the guitar, either on or scne studio.

I have not tried other mics before you buy

Even today, I use it for guitars made.
I a couple Lab Royer R-121 (ribbon) and I Ramna a little "spice" very useful for some decision.

I like the fact that it is indestructible, reliable and compact.

I would do well srmme this choice if other microphones are now similar in terms of functionality.
A would cost, but there is little risk of being the.
