Talk about the SM57, and words like “workhorse” and “legendary” come up. Shure built this exceptionally versatile microphone to produce a clean sound with bright coloration — ideal for putting some pop into vocals and instruments. The SM57’s cardioid pattern picks up the sound you want while minimizing sound from extraneous sources. That makes it a great choice for recording instruments like guitars and drums.

Built to last

The construction of the SM57 further clarifies the sound — a pneumatic shock-mount system cuts down on handling noise. And how about reliability? Can’t beat this mic — it’s proven itself over millions of miles of touring and millions of gigs.


Overview: The Shure SM57 is a rugged professional microphone 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 over 180°.

Connector: The Shure SM57 has a 3-pin male XLR connector. No microphone cable is included in this package.
