The legendary Shure SM57 is exceptional for musical instrument pickup and vocals. With its bright, clean sound and contoured frequency response, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. The SM57 has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern that isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. In the studio, it is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds. Outstanding performance, reliability, and application diversity make this "workhorse" the choice of performers, producers, and sound engineers worldwide.
When I started mixing monitors for Keith Urban, we both felt his guitar wasn't upfront enough in his in-ear mix. When I switched to an SM57 on his Marshall cabs, he asked "what did you do to get it right here [motioning his open palm to his nose]." I replied, "SM57 and a Marshall... who would've thunk!" He laughed agreeably and I had job security. -Jason Spence, JSS President and Engineer
