Overview

The Shure SM57+X2u XLR-To-USB Digital Bundle includes the SM57 instrument microphone, and the X2u XLR-to-USB microphone adapter.

SM57 Instrument Microphone
The legendary Shure SM57 microphone is exceptional for musical instrument pickup and vocals. With its bright, clean sound and contoured frequency response, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern that isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. In the studio, the mic is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds.

X2u XLR-to-USB Microphone Adapter
The Shure X2u XLR-to-USB Microphone Adapter is a modular accessory that connects any XLR microphone to your computer to create better-than-CD quality recordings. As home recording flourishes, the Shure X2u adapter redefines what musicians and podcasters can do in their homes and for on the go sound capture. The X2u mimics the sleek, beautiful design of Shure's iconic SM57 and SM58 microphones and can be used unobtrusively for live and in-studio recording. The X2u microphone adapter provides phantom power so you can use your favorite condenser mic for direct USB recording.

Excellent for home studio recording...

By Lon Diffenderfer

from Thompsontown, PA

Comments about Shure SM57-X2U SM57 MIC WITH XLR-TO-USB PACKAGE:

Although a long time semi-professional singer/actor/musician, I am fairly new to recording in my home. However, I am pleased with the response I am receiving from colleagues and fans about the recordings I have made using this mic. I run the SM-57 to my laptop (running Windows 7). The sound is quite pure. Despite the limited resources I have available for creating a home studio, the reproduction of vocals using this microphone sound great on every system from which they have been played. Shure has won me as a loyal customer. As a recommendation to others who are also new to purchasing their own recording equipment, be careful when purchasing accessories recommended on this site. They are not always appropriate for use with the products for which they are being recommended. For example, the Nady SSPF-4 Pop Filter was recommended for use with this microphone but is not appropriate for the SM-57.

SM-57

By Aaron

from Buffalo

Comments about Shure SM57-X2U SM57 MIC WITH XLR-TO-USB PACKAGE:

This was the mic that got me into recording. The sound quality is amazing and does not even require phantom power for a good sound. This mic has been the studio standard for years and still continues to do so. This is a clasic mic with a clasic price. This is the mic that will help you take places. I curently use this mic for amp micing along with acustic guitar unpluged recordings.

Industry Standard.

Comments about Shure SM57-X2U SM57 MIC WITH XLR-TO-USB PACKAGE:

I can't say enough good things about this mic. I have compared it with high quality dynamic mics and the Sure 57 still sounds warmer then all of them. I would suggest getting a Mogami cable to insure no cable noise. You are good to go...
