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!

Shure SM57
- Micro instrument
- Micro versatile
- Micro Dynamic Cardioid (unidirectional)
- Bandwidth = 40 to 15,000 Hz
- Bandwidth adapted to the recovery and instrumental voices
- Impedance = 150 ohms
- Quality of recovery professional drums and amplified instruments


I use it already for almost 2 years and I'm still very satisfied.
This is probably the best mic I could use and I do it again this choice without hesitating.
By placing it in front of the amp has a particular place more or less inclined we find accurately the sound of the amp as understood when we play :) remains only to do the video editing and it is party!

I have several, they are mainly used to resume the amps (guitar and bass) sound, because they are able to eat any-and any sauce. it's strong!

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.

Shure SM57
I leave that to specialists, because I am advised and I thank the person who provided me the board said!


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 ;)

Shure SM57
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.


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!


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!
