Shure SM57 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
Shure’s SM57 dynamic microphone is a jack of all trades, and definitely a master of them all. You can’t go wrong with this unit, as it has been proven to successfully capture sound from almost every instrument in both live settings as well as recording environments. The unit’s natural presence peak helps to bring out extra clarity in a variety of instruments, particularly in vocals. It can be used as a handheld mic, but also works great when paired with a stand mount. It is also built to last forever, which is one reason why so many touring veterans favor taking this microphone with them out on the road.
