I have two SM57, a pre-2000 (Mexico) and one from after 2004 (China)
Dynamic Microphone

The main difference between Mexico and China: they send the same pattern of EQ, but Mexico sends 6 dB more gain! Product quality has declined since, to Chinese materials ;-(

OVERALL OPINION

Used for years, even for the voice to repeat (beware it is very sensitive to feedbacks).
Super use on stage to send the signal to the mixer.

Pretty horrible in a home studio ... it's better to leave room for the pickups with large membrane condenser (48V power supply).
