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 like using these for live vocals, they do well with syblance, feedback and translate vocal characteristics good. I find it is easy to get a full body vocal sound with minimal eq. Works well for snare, bass and guitar as well. They are a little large for tom placement.
I purchased one of these microphones to be a snare mic for recording. I bought it from AMS about 15 years ago, and it still works fantastic. Have used it on the snare drums, toms, guitar cabinets and my vocals. It's worked flawlessly on everything.
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!
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.
Just like its Shure cousins, this microphones has beautiful sound when put through good PA system, great purchase.
I'm guessing people know the basics of this mic, so I wont bother adding the details. I have recently been flitting between a shure beta 87 and a sennheiser e935, but having read various reviews on the beta 57 i thought that I would get one for work and see what it was like, and i have to say that...
I use this mic to record me singing or scatting for Jazz Band Classes as well as to play saxophone online with my friend who lives in Blacksburg! I read the instructions and watched some online videos and I sound great when i record songs I play on my Bari Sax.
Good output. Sounds great and helps my muddy voice cut through the mix well. Good feedback rejection. Built tough as nails.
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.
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.
