ShureSM57 Cardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone
- Low Prices
Known as a workhorse microphone due to its reliability and flexibility, the SM57 from Shure is a world class instrument microphone that sets the industry standard. The tight cardioid polar pattern blocks out unwanted off axis sounds and only picks up what the mic is pointed at, great for isolating one sound source. In addition, it can handle a ton of gain before it begins to feedback, perfect for live settings.
The natural presence and frequency response highlights the best parts of your vocals, drums, guitar amp, or just about any other instrument you want to point it at. It handles loud sounds with ease, capturing them without unwanted distortion. As you decrease the distance between the microphone and the sound source, the proximity effect brings out more of the bass frequencies, great for miking drums or amplifiers with a full sound. Not only does it sound great, it's durable as heck, able to stand up to extreme usage, night after night. The frequency response is wide ranging, allowing it to be used with a plethora of different sound sources. If you want an all around great and time tested microphone that fits into a wide range of usage scenarios, the SM57 is a must have for your studio or live sound settings.
