Outstanding performance, reliability, and application diversity make this "workhorse" the choice of performers, producers, and sound engineers worldwide.

Shure SM57LC Customer Reviews
Tommy Tranq

Jul 3rd, 2023
The Shure SM57 is a world class microphone. It’s been around for ages and, while that doesn’t have to mean much because some mics such as the SM58 I find to be always an inferior option, I think with the 57 Shure have really nailed it. I bought this for a recording session for an acoustic guitarist I work with. The mic sounded great on each guitar he brought in. Or rather the guitars all sounded great through it. Naturally you’ll want to do additional processing for a polished recording...

Great classic mic for your home studio or for live sound. Sounds good on guitar cabs, snare, toms, percussion, etc.


Good sound quality for the price. A must have mic than can mike almost anything.
