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 ;-(


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).
