  • A must have

    As reviewed by Matt on 6/26/2008

    If you record music, then you need at least one of these. A excellent all around mic that has many uses.

  • It is a Classic!!

    As reviewed by Mark Bras on 4/20/2007

    I bought the SM57 about one year ago for my home studio and have had no complaints about it so far. I have recorded with more expensive mics, and very few have the versatility of the SM57. Bass cabinet, snare, guitar amp, even vocals! For a very good price!! You won't find another one that meet these standards, including low price!!

  • Wow what a great Microphone

    As reviewed by zolojub on 8/5/2008

    This mic has the most transparent sound. You will not regret getting this mic. We use the SM 57 for recording snare drum and guitar amps, and it works great. There is a reason why it is an industry standard. PS. We also use a Shure SM 58 for live/recording vocals. Get a couple of those too!
