"Solid and dependable mics"

By a customer from aol.com, zzounds.com
13 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Sure SM58 and SM57 have been the industry standard for a long time. You realy cant go wrong with these mic for live sound. Do I recomend these mics for the studio, no, but for live sound they are road worthy, tested and worth the money.

"Great Deal on a bunch of Microphones"

By a customer from comcast.net, zzounds.com
4 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Great deal on a bunch of microphones. I had to get a bunch of mics together for a 5 piece acoustic band, I only owned a SM 57 and a couple of SM58's. It's not cheap, but for a full bands worth of mics that are road tested and decent sounding, it's pretty reasonable.

A nice, classic microphone, though today the Sennheiser E-906 is better.

Maxinator, Dooyoo
21 December 2013
  • Excerpt: You want to record your guitar amplifier? - Get a SM57! I guess this dialogue exists like the SM57 is on the market, because it's the classic microphone for recording gutiar amplifiers. Quality/processing: The microphone is black and made of metal.

" A must have microphone! "

severinsteel, Audiofanzine
29 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Dynamic cardioid microphone. Well, this microphone needs no introduction. Chances are, most every recording studio has one and every recording studio should. The SM57 is a studio staple for guitar cabs and snare drums. It has a mid heavy but pleasing sound and handles high SPL's very well.
