designed for live performance, sound reinforcement, and studio recording
applications. It's the industry standard for miking amplified or acoustic
instruments, as well as percussion. This SM57-LC model comes with a swiveling stand mount and a
zippered carrying bag.
Pickup Pattern: The SM57 is has a cardioid polar pattern,
which picks up the most sound from directly in front of the microphone, and some
sound from the sides. This makes it less susceptible to feedback.
Construction: The microphone has a durable die cast steel
construction with a dark gray matte finish. It has a polycarbonate grille and a
stainless steel screen. The advanced pneumatic shock mount system minimizes the
transmission of vibration and handling noise.
Mounting: The SM57 comes with a swiveling stand mount, which
provides a secure mount to a floor stand or a boom stand. The microphone slips
into the swivel mount, which lets you tilt the microphone forward or backward
Connector: The Shure SM57 has a 3-pin male XLR connector. No
microphone cable is included in this package.
