    mixed percussion guitar amp

    OVERALL OPINION

    20 years was a sound engineer I have the other for something else (such as old nails 545
    Amphenol connector has a Russian tank) and solid fible is better to see (but solid?) I persist and sign

    The "Standard" for a Reason!

    Shure SM57Published on 03/31/12 at 00:53
    Microphone Type: Dynamic
    Polar Pattern: Cardioid
    Frequency Response: 40Hz-15kHz
    Impedance: 150 ohms
    Includes clip, XLR cable tie and bag.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've used nearly all the studio go-to mics for guitar cabs, and I keep coming back to the SM57. The e609 sounds great for lower gain, but lacks aggressiveness for higher gain applications, the 57 does it all. The Sennheiser MD421 is a great cab mic, but is also 4 times the price - And at that price, it's certainly not $300 better. The Royer ribbons sound AMAZING, but not something I'd use as a standalone sound - Pair it with a 57 and you're golden.

The Royer ribbons sound AMAZING, but not something I'd use as a standalone sound - Pair it with a 57 and you're golden.

    These mics are the most popular dynamic mics on the planet for a reason, they can literally do anything, and sound great doing it! Guitar cabs, toms, snare, vocals - If you can put a mic in front of it, it'll probably sound pretty good with this one. It might not excel as well as other mics at certain applications, but where you'd normally use a dynamic mic, in order to find something "better" you're looking at spending MUCH more money. The 57 works amazingly well with nearly any preamp you pair it with, thus you can make great tracks on a cheap $100 interface, and in a $1 million recording studio with it.

    The SM57 is a workhorse in the studio and live. Every musician should own at least one.

    I leave that to specialists, because I am advised and I thank the person who provided me the board said!

    OVERALL OPINION

    For the use I made it perfect: sound for the melodica in studio and on stage. He follows me around for ages and never fail like all the microphones of the brand elsewhere.
    Incidentally I'm using it to catch voice and percussion, it's okay and versatile for its price.
    It has its limitations and its color, but they fit me well ;)

    Although Shure, you market a good mic :-)

    What kind of microphone? I generally used my mics for a little while, I do not hesitate to experiment. This mic is very bine his work, it's a classic and I think it is part of the microphone that we must have in its fleet.

    What technology? it is a dynamic cardioid.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long you use it? for 6 or 7 months
    What is so special that you love the most, least? manufacturing and sound, at least I do not know. nothing?

    Did you tried many other models before buying it? no, I wanted to have. this micro

    How would you rate the quality / price? very good.

    With experience, you do again this choice? absolutely.

    for details see above and everything!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year and I 'am very satisfied! robust and sound of madness! I love it because it's a super versatile microphones and very sturdy!
    but I think that for voice c not really the top except for the metal can be good but now it depends on what you want to do ...
    I think with experience I redeem 100x!

    Dynamic microphone that is no longer such specifications are available everywhere on the net, I do not leave it here ;-)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used for nearly 10 years (occasionally as too much time to record).
    Bought without trying, but simply because of its side "indispensable" in the studio and live.
    Served with a friend who recorded the album in a punk group typed for guitars and snare.
    For my part, I do not use that for the guitar: very accurate with the exception of the famous bump in the treble!

    In short, it is indeed a must-have micro. This cash very well the high level of noise a "big mess" drivée by a beefy amp, restores a clean and easily workable.

    not as legendary as it

    I bought it to make subcultures amp live and studio.
    cardioid dynamic microphone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I had the opportunity to use it several times on stage being very satisfied with the sound (if I may say so)!
    versatile microphone that works well for transplanting ausssi amp grata or low toms and snare drums also.
    it can also help to sing if you just steal your sm58!
    That said, I bought this mic like the legendary 58 sm, believing something to be mad when I have a prodipe tt1 to 40 € (I invite you to take a look on his test) and I see no difference with the sm 58 sm on edge or on transplanting 57 amp, yet my sound system sound card and my studio are good and I know a poor q…

    very honest, if I had the choice again, I think I'll take it because it's still a very good microphone that you must have (basically if you have not a sm 57 mic in your set, you almost missed your life is what people say even if I am not so sure but hey)! but I wanted to buy 4 sm 57 for live and now I know I redeem prodipe tt1. I put him still a 8 / 10 because it is a very good micro but there is also much cheaper.

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

    OVERALL OPINION

    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 ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    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.

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.

    Micro Amp back scratching, snare, toms, other percussion, brass.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the past ten years, it's simply the best quality / price ratio.
    I never encountered any problems with this microphone, I still have my first copy that works like new.
    I remake that choice.
