Summary: This Microphone (Shure Beta 57A Microphone) is the best mic I have ever used. I can't say enough, everyone should try one of these. I have been playing lead guitar for 4o years. I use it to mic my 65 Fender Twin Reverb. It made my guitar sound full and clear and improved my sustain. My only regret is that I did not try this mic sooner. "It is a great Microphone", 150% satisfied !!!!!!!

Summary: The Shure Beta 57A is an absolutely unmatchable live microphone. The entire beta series by Shure is well known. This particular microphone works well for about anything. Traditionally 57's have been used to mic amps for live use, and this one follows suit. it sounds absolutely amazing when positioned correctly on the cone of a good tube amp. However that is not the limit of the beta 57's capabilities. I actually use one for a vocal microphone.
Summary: This mic is awesome. I wasn't sure if upgrading to this from the original SM57 would be worth it, but after playing this weekend, I couldn't believe the clarity and warmth this mic provided. I'm glad I bought this mic, and it will be replacing the original 57 used for my guitar cab.
