Shure SM57 Dynamic Microphone

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. 



We highly recommend this microphone as a go to mic that can handle most drum and percussion instruments very well, from congas and bongos to rack toms, floor toms, and snare drums to small percussion like claves and shakers. This microphone will never let you down!




This microphone is also available in the DMK57-52 pack which includes three SM57 microphones, one Beta 52A microphone, and all of the mounts that you need to get going, all in a sweet case:
