The SM-57

Details for the 

SM-57

General Description

The SM-57 is the industry standard guitar amp mic for decades. Paired with the Royer R-121 ribbon mic it is a match made in guitar tone heaven.

The R-121 is crystal clear and true to its sound source at high SPL levels. The SM-57 is musically colored and complements the pristine R-121 perfectly for that classic tube tone we all know and love.

Comments

The contoured frequency response makes it simple to engineer clean audio for a live sound mix.

Hard knocks are just part of the show sometimes, and the SM57 is built to take them on. A hit from a high kick or a flying drumstick can’t shut it down.

Only the loud you want. With a uniform cardioid pattern and a pneumatic shock mount system, you get a whole lot of tone without the handling or background noise.
