You can say this microphone is a great all around microphone and it is if you need it to be. It is definitely a microphone that you need to have around because you never know when you will have a use for it but I would not use it for vocals if you do not have to.

I had been using a Sure KSM27 Condenser Mic for years on my Guitar cabinets with mixed results. If I recorded at low volume I would hear way too much background noise (picking, breathing,etc.). This mic allows for me to record in my apartment and not ♥♥♥♥ anyone off.

We have an announcer on our show who is a Metal singer and because he lacks a certain amount of finesse when doing voice over no broadcast mic seemed to do the trick. This one did.

A friend had one of these and I liked the sound and volume he was getting without feedback. Bought one myself and wish I had done it sooner.

Very strong, clean Mike! My lead singer has a powered Beta and was impressed. I've use 58s & 57s for as long as I can remember. I've been at it professionally and semi-pro since 1969. Shure G is the BEST!

so far, so good. Solid product

used for a harp mic. the proximity effect is real good at boosting low notes. less handling noise than my 57

This is the upgraded version of the sm57; more dynamics, more detail. Generally, the sm57 are used to capture acoustic or electric guitar and drums. I found out that the Beta 57A does an excellent job on my voice, and just had to buy one for my self. Great value for the money.

A friend of mine who runs sound professional recommended this mic for me and my vocal register. I've used it now for 3 live shows and I have to say it blows away some of the other mics I have used. It replaced a TC Helicon MP 75 I was using with my VoiceLive 3.

Great mic for any kind of use. Vocals sound great as well as guitar and bass amplifier. I use this mic in my home studio and live performance.

I have three of these that I now use on stage. Incredible, clear crisp sound.
