The SM-57 is the industry standard guitar amp mic for decades.

The Seismic Custom Twin 12" Celestion Creamback cabinet, is used by the "Bedroom Amps" as a shared cabinet. It is mic'd with two SM-57s, one for each Celestion 12" Creamback speaker.

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.
