One of the most versatile mics in the audio industry

For sheer versatility and durability, nothing comes close to the Shure SM57 instrument / vocal microphone. This unidirectional dynamic microphone is exceptional for musical instrument pickup or for vocals. With its bright, clean sound and carefully contoured presence rise, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source and minimizes background noise. In the studio, it is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds. For musical instruments or vocals, the SM57 is a consistent choice of professional performers and has even been the standard microphone for the podium of the U.S. President for over 30 years. See the video for more details on applications and specifications.

Shure SM57 Features:

  • Contoured frequency response for clean, instrumental reproduction and rich vocal pickup
  • Professional-quality reproduction for drum, percussion, and instrument amplifier miking
  • Uniform cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while reducing background noise
  • Pneumatic shock-mount system cuts down handling noise
  • Extremely durable under the heaviest use
  • Frequency Response: 40 Hz - 15 kHz
  • Replacement Cartridge: R57
