    I use it for miking live on my little vox amp, also on percussion. And I am fully meet these criteria. I must say that its Value for money is unbeatable :). I'm not an expert by far but little by little I learned and I team. The more time passes, the more you become demanding.

    For the guitar and acoustic guitar amplifier recovery.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Well, everything has been said and written about this reference. Because its reputation is well deserved: this microphone is near perfection.
    His character is sturdy and yet unanimous. Here is rather rare! Everyone agrees to praise the quality of the microphone and I'm one!
    In recovery amp, it is flawless: it faithfully reproduces the sonic character of the speaker combo or before which it is placed and it is both normal and many more. Do not forget that the price is still relatively low.
    You can really talk to her about quality / price ratio extraordinary.
    It is said sensitive placement? I think that …

    You can really talk to her about quality / price ratio extraordinary.
    It is said sensitive placement? I think that this is a true quality because beyond its own sonic character, it remains neutral and transparent enough to respond to its position before the speaker.
    I often couple broadband static which gives me two tracks with different colors and an interesting mix. But even alone, he is doing well and does the job.
    It also captures happily acoustic guitars although I prefer other solutions. It will restore in any case, life in some guitars that fail due to its generous return of mediums.
    A legendary product that deserves its legend.

    Cardioid microphone electrodynamics.

    OVERALL OPINION

    For almost 20 years I use SM57. With its companion SM58 is probably the most common micro world. This hegemony is not misused because these two microphones are reliable and make a sound less correct in all circumstances. However, I do not know a single application where the SM57 is my best choice. For me, the SM57 is a spare.
    The SM57 has something slimy in the upper midrange. On hand percussion (congas), I feel that the finger sticks to the skin. It does not return the presence with high fidelity, it is diluted in a little time, making it last longer, so you can hear better but it is less clear. On dense sounds in this regis…

    The SM57 has something slimy in the upper midrange. On hand percussion (congas), I feel that the finger sticks to the skin. It does not return the presence with high fidelity, it is diluted in a little time, making it last longer, so you can hear better but it is less clear. On dense sounds in this register (saturated guitar), it becomes quite fast aggressive.
    On a saxophone in concert to choose between SM57 and SM58, SM58, which I take is thinner in the midrange. A snare I rather to the M201 or M88 Beyerdynamic home.
    Despite these criticisms, the SM57 is a basic tool that always gave me a usable result.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for seven or eight years.
    Bought as a lot of people to regain their guitar amps and snare.
    A fully met my expectations.
    Note that one of my best stopped emitting its net after a concert. He took a wand? Exchanged uneventful by my supplier. That was my only failure microphone.

    Basically optimized for miking, dynamic type. However, with a great pop to the song!

    OVERALL OPINION

    1 test today and it does well in singing and tested quickly resumption amp 5 watts. J bought directly shure because c is a reference. The quality is perfect for a reasonable budget remaining. I remake that choice without hesitation!

    Cardioid microphone and a frequency response of 40 Hz - 15 kHz and a sensitivity of -54.5 dBV / Pa (1.88 mV) according to the information read on the net.

    It looks pretty solid, I traveled around a lot, and it looks like it is still new ... However I suggest you buy a microphone support, because otherwise it is a hassle to put it ...

    I read here and there that there was a bump in the spectrum, I personally feel anything, or at least nothing that has bothered me.

    Excellent value for my home use, and the creation of my models. I do not need more, I'm primarily a guitarist, no sound engineer, so this model offers a quality / price ratio perfect. Now I have not tested other models, but I know that if I were to break or I lose, I would take the same model!

    The microphone is very good but the USB interface causes a noise rather painful. So I use the microphone without this interface, except for troubleshooting ...

    Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
    ideal for vocals / guitar and others.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for barely a month and I am very satisfied.
    A microphone is recommended to everyone who is on a budget (or not).
    used in home studio as a professional studio mic this extremely versatile reserve more of a surprise! :)
    This mic is a standard and it is not for nothing.
    Issue price / quality is top!

    I would do this choice without hesitation.
