A must have studio mike!

Summary: I had to give this mike a chance with it`s great reputation. It works great on a bass amp! It works great on male voices in my opinion. Be aware this is a low output mike. You will need a Cloudlifter(about $150)or something similar to get the signal up. Good Luck!
Summary: I bought this mic to record various sources such as guitars, drums and vocals. It works really well on most sources I have tried it on and is great for male vox especially. I'm fairly certain this mic will be constantly in use in my studio for the foreseeable future.
This is the best of the large diaphragm dynamic mic, no contest.

Summary: This is probably the most versatile microphone I have ever used. The possible timbres available are enormous. You can record without a windscreen, with the standard windscreen, with the large windscreen, with the high pass filter engaged, with the high pass filter off, with the presence boost engaged, with the presence boost off, and any other combination you can imagine. Each of these combinations yields a different sound quality!
Summary: For a very reachable price, I was able to buy this new SM7B mic and match part one of the signal Chain used to record many pro recordings from Michael Jackson's Thriller to Chickenfoot's III. You can see the mic briefly in the studio parts of some Chickenfoot videos from III including the video for "Three and a half letters". You can find that video online. I've found it to be a quality mic.
My favorite recording tool since I got to know it!

Summary: Fantastic microphone. I am a voice over professional and a good mic is the first thing I need to get the job done. Condenser microphones are great, but they capture the room ambience and a lot of unwanted noise if you do not have an appropriate recording place, like me. The SM7B captures my voice and almost ignores the noise around me as a good dynamic should do, but the dynamic response and natural EQ make it a great tool.
Summary: I am retired, after over 30 years, from the music industry. I worked as an engineer and live soundman. I own over 60 mics myself,about every brand available,from AKG, Sennheiser, Neumann, EV, Pelouso, Blue, Heil, etc. Being the curious type I've tried them all on my rigs. Since the ear is the final judge and not a spec sheet, I won't bore you with the engineering data or manufacturerer's propaganda.
Summary: This is the mic they used on Michael Jackson for Thriller. If that's not enough of a selling point it has a midrange AND low end filter. Its also available in black, FTW. Get this mic if you want to sound pro but don't have a bunch of cash, be ready though, as it is a relatively low output mic.
