  • Excerpt: “No, not the Shure SM57,” I said to the young clerk at the mega guitar market, “I need an SM-SEVEN.” “Dude,” he replied. “There’s no such thing. You mean a FIFTY-SEVEN.” At that point, luckily, I spied an SM-7A box behind the counter and pointed it out to him. The poor fellow was embarrassed, to say the least. He said, “Dude, I had no clue.” “You said it, not me,” I thought to myself.

  • Excerpt: bought it a year ago, I would say that the song, c is the dynamic that I use the most. J also have an RE20, m88, 421 and 57 of course, it looks not bad at RE20. nice bass, very full sound with great fishing and not aggressive at all, unlike a lot of condensation today .. I'll get when my static reinforce treble a bit tiring, as i...

"Great Go-To Mic" - MatrixClaw

Audiofanzine
31 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The SM7b is a great mic and, with the right preamp, can be the center vocal mic in a professional studio. Not only does this mic sound great on vocals (especially male, in the heavier styles of music), but also on guitar cabinets, snare drum, hi-hats and the occasional bass drum. This was the mic used to record the vocals on the highest sellin...

" voice in "proximity"" - coolwaiss

15 March 2012
  • Excerpt: This mic is great in a home studio not "treated", unlike static u it does not capture the sound of the room with acuity, but isolates the voice giving him a "color" close to a statique.Son gain is its "Achilles heel." The price / quality ratio is "breathtaking".

  • Excerpt: This mic picks up all the nuance and character that I want while also providing amazing ambient noise rejection. I can record in any room in my house and the sound is nearly the same in each place. And while I wouldn't call this microphone a jack of all trades, that doesn't stop me from telling you that I love this microphone! You will too.<br ...

"Great for all vocals" - James...

18 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Oddly enough, I first came into contact with one of these during a live session recording. I had seem them before being used on vocals, but in this particular setting I was given one to use on my own vocals. I looked at the engineer like he was crazy. It was a live acoustic session. I had a guitar, drums, and an acoustic bass, on top of me s...

"Forgiving. Solid. Not very flattering." - Kierkes

27 June 2011
  • Excerpt: This microphone will always find its way into studios because it just WORKS on everything. However, keep in mind that if you're a project musician, you shouldn't listen to a bunch of gearheads talking about this microphone. They are enamored with the ease of its use and its versatility, but understand that there is probably a micr...

  • Excerpt: This is a short week it is in intensive testing at the studio ... Very nice microphone, in any case, I am a fan:) Having bought many of my favorite albums included some voices principal made with this mic. Verdict: not disappoint, output level, but my feeble excellent GTQ2 has recovered all that, do not be afra...

  • Excerpt: I've been using the Shure SM7B for about four years and have found it to truly be a great sounding microphone. It doesn't differ too much if at all across the board from the standard SM7, sharing the same qualities in terms of tone that includes a big sounding response as well as the ability to handle louder signals and instruments. I've used th...
