Shure SM7
dynamic microphone for voice pick


I use it for 3 years
is perfectly suited to a micro voice "nag" genre rap, hardcore, metal.
it is also excellent in isolation, it was designed for radio at the time newsrooms noisy, internal air cushion suspension has done its office.
I use it for "live" recorded when the singer also plays an instrument, to avoid repeating the instrument.
Coupled to a preamplifier 610 LA, it's wonderful!
I've never tried on a female voice
I successfully tested on low toms, brass, guitar amps
however it is quite unsuitable for remote sockets, atmospheres, and instruments to soundboard.
not very expensive for a micro in its class, it's still a specialized micro, if you have only one microphone, choose a more versatile model.
I would do this choice without hesitation, this microphone is very special, but what he does, he is the only one doing it as well!

Large diaphragm dynamic mic multipurpose!

A switch allows you to add the rear of the presence, another gradually lowers the bass below 300Hz. It comes with a specially fixed for a conventional microphone stand, does not need to clamp amortized.

[9] If it is not Prou, ay looks good. The wide dynamic membranes are not lgions the European market.


This in spcificit CHARACTERISTICS continues in the sound. We are facing an alien my faith very enjoyable. First, as discussed below, we see immediately what ct "on air" he emphasizes. It feels to talk radio ds first takes. It has a warm nature with nature smoother but also his Ractive confrre the sm58 and the 8 microphone akg who were around him. it has a grain less apocalyptic, but wide and, when pushed in to a corner, he Ragit trs dnaturer naturally without grain, but by grafting texture.
But mfiance the catgoriser in micro radio without worrying about what he may have in the belly can be a big mistake. With proper installation derrire, it is possible to get out about the results really bluffing. He loves the dynamic voices, whether live or in studio and n'corche not "s" and "Ch" as the other mikes. They spend more smooth, but without losing lgrement FLTs body. Instead, he likes to add more. Knowing right to keep, I would say that Violet Design "The Wedge" and the Brauner "Panthera" microphones are relatively similar principles, although still more expensive because pousss further. But the SM7 can find his marks on scne. Indeed, it seems to sound ractif parasites sent by your collgues request for it be used trs prs Mission of the source of sound. Something else ... it is also good for the resumption of guitar amps, for which he is more rich, warm and soft as a sm57; to take over bass amp (which does adj explained below ) and to come to the reinforcement of a floor tom mic or a kick that would stain Different.

[8] will not take you be a millionaire to have a sound that kills. The SM7 is a good investment for those who want a micro reliable, robust, versatile and affordable, yet without compromising on the sound. Quick Tip our Swiss friends, buy it for 399 in Germany, Switzerland, the market price Exceeds 535 euros.

Shure SM7


Just an opinion on the microphone: microphone in use in radio studio frequently.
It is perfect for recording a guitar amp (given its freq response)
Also perfect for recording a voice close (very close).
What is nice is that it is not very sensitive,
it captures what is at 5 cm, period ... very interesting if several sources.
Brief everyone will tell you, "this does not micro ahaha this is not done for"
well try and see for yourself. Surprising result.
