ShureSM57-X2u Instrument Microphone w/ XLR-USB Adapter
- 15% OFF
Combining Shure's legendary SM57 microphone with their X2u USB adapter, this package provides what you need to start recording, right out of the box. Shure's much loved SM57 is a workhorse microphone that is suited for instrument or vocal usage. It provides a natural presence and features a wide frequency response that helps to bring out all the nuances in your performance. Able to handle high sound pressure levels, it accurately picks up even the loudest sounds you point it at, helped in part due to the cardioid polar pattern. Cardioid polar patterns only accept sound directly in front of it, and blocks unwanted sounds coming from the sides and rear.
In addition to this sought after microphone, Shure included the X2u, a XLR to USB adapter. This plug and play device lets you record directly into your computer, without the need for drivers, and records at 16-bit/48kHz. The built-in preamp has gain control and can even power microphones that require +48V phantom power. A built in headphone jack with volume control provides zero-latency monitoring of your performance.
Together, these two items make a great combination, allowing you to record straight out of the box, whether that's instruments, singing, or podcasting.
