The Shure SM 57 is a classic mic that has a very natural sound about it. And it doesn’t pick up too much background noise. I think everyone that has every recorded has came across the Shure SM 57. For the price, this mic just can't be beat. Selling for under $100 in most retail stores and online, anyone investing in a good microphone can afford to consider the SM57. Shure has long been working men's gear, available and affordable for working local musicians, yet used and respected by international touring professionals. You can use this mic in a home studio, some major studio’s even have it. Or for a live performance in an indoor or and outdoor setting it will still sound great.

Given the choice to do it all over again, I'd invest my money in the exact same three SM57's I have now. Whenever I'm making up a stage I always run out of 57's before I'm ready, so I guess I should go get another pair of them. I own other instrumental mics designed for live and studio applications, and I'm just really pleased with the 57's.

I've used these mics in live shows to amplify guitar cabinets, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, hand drums, snare drum, and on occasion, voices. (Although, for vocal applications, vocalists will practically need to swallow the grill to be amplified well - not much of a pickup range on this mic for vocals, so stay close to it while singing.) No matter which instrument's being played into the SM57, it produces clear, clean signal; especially when used for a live horn . If you havent used this mic before I suggest you going out and getting it, even if its not your first mic, it’s a very well rounded mic and can do what ever you need it to do for a very cheap price when it comes to mics.
