Shure SM57 Dynamic Instrument Microphone

Multi-purpose Shure microphone with contoured frequency response

Written by

Will Brook-Jones

The Shure SM57 is a legendary dynamic mic; even that’s probably an understatement. Its easily the most popular, ubiquitous instrument microphone in the whole world. You’ll find it being used to mic up everything from toms and snares, to brass instruments and guitar amplifiers. Some vocalists even prefer it ahead of its cousin, the SM58. 

Deserved Reputation

It’s a popular piece of gear for a reason. It features a supremely clear, bright sound, with a well-shaped frequency response. This makes it well suited to recording in the studio and capturing instruments live. It’s this versatility, level of performance and reliability that has solidified its reputation amongst the music community. 

Perfect Pickup

A cardioid polar pattern effectively isolates your source. It highlights it in excellent detail, while reducing any unwanted background noise. This makes it perfect not just for guitar and drums, but woodwind instruments too. 


  • Seriously durable; these mics withstand extensive usage. 
  • A pneumatic shock mount design reduces the amount of handling noise. 
  • Cardioid polar pattern picks up focused sound from the front. It reduces incoming ambient sound from the back and sides. 
  • Ideal for capturing instrument amplifiers, percussion and drums. You can even use it for vocals. 
  • A meticulously shaped frequency response reproduces your source clearly and cleanly. 


  • Type: Dynamic
  • Polar Pattern: Cardioid
  • Phantom Power Needed: No
  • Frequency Response: 40-15,000 HZ
