Get as loud and play as hard as you want without compromising on quality with the SM57 Dynamic Instrument Microphone from Shure. Built for the stage but just at home in the studio, this instrument mic delivers optimal audio in every acoustic condition.
The SM57 gives you the tools you need to confidently play with power and connect with your audience. Whether you’re miking a snare, capturing an arpeggiated chord, or performing a powerful saxophone solo, the SM57 reproduces your music in a way that accurately reflects both nuance and strength. Its rugged build makes the SM57 ideal for taking on the punishment of a high kick or flying drumstick.
Turn up the volume and create an immersive audio experience. This mic is specifically designed to handle high-pressure sounds from instruments and amplifiers alike—without suffering distortion that might distract from your art.
The SM57 boasts a tailored frequency response that makes it easy to engineer clean audio in a live sound mix. Its uniform cardioid polar pattern minimizes pickup from the back and sides, so you capture all the sound of your instrument while it stays isolated from background noise. Meanwhile, a built-in pneumatic shock mount system protects your audio from handling noise.
Included with the SM57 Dynamic Instrument Microphone is an A25D Swivel Stand Adapter for easy and versatile mic placement, as well as a 95A2313 Storage Bag to protect your mic when it’s not in use.
