Summary: I bought this mic once before but it was before I bought a decent preamp, not a good idea. However, If you have a good mic pre, it will become more apparent when you buy this microphone. It's very crisp and clean but not two bright where you have cut a bunch of frequency when mixing it for vocals. Great for loud singers with lots character. It sounds great with the ISA one and the 610 solo.
Summary: The shure sm7b is just a beautiful well built mic.... It's very good for a high pitched loud singer like myself.... The settings in the back of the mic names the mic work on anything!!.... Just make sure u have a preamp with tons of gain and this mic will just shine!....also make sure u know why ur buying it!!! It has a wonderful tone and if you guys have a noisy neighborhood it cuts off background noise very well....BUY IT!!!!!!!
Summary: I use this on my singer's voice. It's very unique so not all mics sound right for him. I've heard great things about these SM7b's so I thought I'd give it a shot. Wow! IT's smooth response and bass roll off is just what the DR. ordered! He sounds amazing. After each show people say how great his voice was. Nice job SHURE.

Summary: I own 4 Large Condenser mics, but they didn't handle the dynamics of expressive vocals well, so I went to the SM57 and loved it..... until I bought the SM7B... enough said... Genni is out of the bottle now, so can't go back. The SM7B is a very clear sounding mic over the SM57 and is a keeper. Using it with the Golden Age Mic Pre73 and a Focusrite 2i2 and have zero noise... Worth the money for sure.
Summary: After doing home recording for 15 years, I have found the perfect mic in the Shure SM7b! I have tried many different mics from many companies and Shure has never been a disappointment to me and this mic has surpassed my expectations! I became interested in this mic after watching a YouTube clip on Bruce Sweden and Michael Jackson and the recording of Thriller.
