Summary: I have been using shure mics for years and have never had a problem with them. I have purchased more SM57's due to more on-stage amps being used ,they work great bringing the sound to the FOH for a more clear sound coming froom the speakers, once everything is timed correctly, the sound is awssome.
Summary: I bought one of these when I was 17 in a band. I'm 63 now and still love this mike and a few more 57's I bought along the way. I use for vocals, guitar mic thru the PA (works great!), and micing my acoustic guitar to the PA. There's no mic like this. This is why it has been around for so long. Highly recommended.
Summary: I have been using the SM57 20+yrs weather its on toms,snares,Bass drums(yes! Bass drums!)guitar amps,percussion,vocals you name i"ve been there done that. Very easy and quick to get awesome sound and EQ on the mixer.I purchase a Jet city isolation cab six month ago and installed an Eminence Lil Texas.
Summary: What can I say about it that has not already been said. It's a great mic for vocals and instruments. You know what else it great? zZounds! I always try and buy from them. They are friendly, competitively priced and delivery is fast.

Summary: i like the sound of the microphone, but the SM58 is lot better when I tried to used it with my friend karaoke he got one of SM58. Most of all I am very satisfied when I ordered my merchandise to zZounds, I received my order on time when I found out I made a mistake ordering just a microphone, I called the store and the gentleman I talked to is very polite and helpful, when I discuss to him my problems he didn't hesitate to correct my problems, he knows exactly how to...
Summary: This mic is the standard in the industry for recording an amp. It is solid, well built, takes a licking and still performs well. You could not hope for a better sounding quality dynamic mic than this one. Notwithstanding, I do still think the mic is a bit overpriced for what it is.
