      Skip to bottom for tl;dr

      So a little backstory first. So I used to gig quite often in high school with both an original band (progressive rock/indie) and a cover band (Rock/Funk). I eventually got a hold of a Mackie Onyx mixer w/ firewire (unbeatable for it's price, seriously) and started recording with it. I was by no means a pro audio engineer, but I prided myself on some decent mixing abilities. I had an array of sm57/58's, a couple of Studio Projects B1 condensers (unbelievable for the price, check youtube for sound demos), a Beta 58, and this mic (usually used for our lead singer live -this is a given, as it is an excellent vocal mic- and I think I used it for bass some as well). So, for a hobbyist, I was set up pretty darn well, except for one issue. I was never completely satisfied with the kick drum sound in my recordings. It seemed impossible.

      Fast forward to about a month ago. One of my old high school buddies was now doing an apprenticeship as a sound engineer in a pro studio in Philadelphia and I was going to school for Computer/Electrical Engineering. He wanted to start jamming/gigging again for fun and possibly some extra income as well. So, I broke out the old mixer to hack around with some recordings. I had tried every microphone on my kick drum except this one, so I figured what the heck, might as well try it. I also made a subkick microphone out of an old car sub and some resistors I took out of the lab to see if this could fix my problem. Well, the subkick project went quite well, but I was absolutely shocked at the kick drum sound I was getting from this mic. It sounded verysimilar to the highly regarded and more expensive Audix D6. So out of curiosity, I checked out it's frequency response curve and compared it to the D6. Not surprisingly (but still shockingly), in close miking, this phenomenal microphone had a very similar frequency response curve to the D6 and was able to handle slightly less, but very similar sound pressure levels (a necessity for kick drums, as they are LOUD up close. I had finally solved my kick drum woes! Punchy, with no distortion, and it could pick up the low frequencies needed for kick drums. I need to pick up another one or go back to the Beta 58 for miked gigs!

      Too Long; Didn't Read: Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these babies. They are not only one of the best vocal mics you can buy, but also sound unbelievably similar to an Audix D6 and can handle high sound pressure levels.

      Warning: while they can handle high SPL's, if you tend to beat the crap out of your bass drums (I mean REALLY crush the drum), I can't say with absolute certainty that this mic will not distort. However I tend to play really hard, and it has worked beautifully for me thus far. So, I would say this microphone should be more than fine for the vast majority of drummers. It can't be beat in it's price, and I really cannot say that this mike has any flaws at all, except for maybe an on/off switch? Who cares, nobody uses those anyway.
      It comes quite close to perfection. Everyone but the most picky sound engineers or vocalists (and even those guys really) will find no microphone that they can say are better (although some may prefer another mic). Some may prefer other microphones to this one simply because of the way in which they prefer to mix. But in my humble opinion, this microphone simply outclasses every microphone I have ever heard in it's price range. It rivals and often surpasses MUCH more expensive microphones).

      Even if you tend prefer another microphone (which is totally understandable if you just like the reputation of quality and durability for something like a Shure), you really should add one of these to your collection. While I have heard nothing about it's durability, I have used this mic for 7 years and have yet to have even a minor problem. The sound quality speaks for itself.

      If you are looking for your first mike for either recording or live, you simply can't go wrong with this one. It is highly versatile, and is totally worth the extra few bucks over slightly cheaper mics. It can produce a high quality sound from virtually any instrument (from vocals/guitars to kick drums and basses). It absolutely demolishes Shure's similarly priced mikes at lower frequencies and I like it better for vocals, but Shure products are the standard for a reason.
      Slightly more expensive than say a Shure SM58, but the price difference is negligible given this microphone's superior all-around versatility. I've never tried to hammer a stage together with one of these, but I would bet a lot of money that it could be done quite easily.

      NOTE: please do not try to hammer a stage together with one of these, I was only making a point. You are solely responsible for any damages that are done to this microphone, and agree to not sue me if you break it (haha).

      I've owned this mic about five years. It's always sounded great, but got to the last gig and it didn't work. Figured it must be the cable but no it was the mic. Surprised I have never had a mic fail to work in over 30 years as pro musician. I'm always careful to not drop my mics and pack with care. Don't understand why it would fail. Looks like durability is not as good. Considering what to buy next as this mic sounds much better than all my shure mics(even beta 58). Learn why to always have back up at the gig.

          I purchased 3 of these mics in 2016 for my 3 piece band. I have used this cartridge in several wireless units through the years, and they were very durable, clean, ad easy to EQ. If you are looking for something different then a SM58, which I am also a fan of, look no further! You can push this mic without it distorting, and its a hot mic without feedback. You will love it!

            I had a EV PL 95 Pro Line mic that recently quit working. This mic sounds pretty good but it distorts badly if you get too close. It also has a brash tone to it compared to the old PL 95 which requires eq settings to bring it into a mellow range. Not as good as the old mic but it isn't made anymore. For the amount paid it is a very good value.

                I had a specific need to replace 1 of three 757 mics, and we agreed this should do it. I don't think there was anything wrong with the mic, it just didn't match. We has to add these in to a live performance with no adjustments. Thanks for your experience for the whole transaction

                  I have 3 of these mics and the sound for vocals is fantastic. However the other day 1 of them just stopped working completely. And it was only 3 years old. Checked the line in the amp, the wire, and no it was the mic. It wasn't dropped or abused, I've never had that happen before, but I see on this site others have had the same problem. The other 2 I have still work great so I'm going to buy 1 more and see what happens.I hope its just a fluke.

                    As a professional singer I used a Shure Beta 58 for 15 years. One day I simply decided it was time for something else. My only regret is that I didn't look sooner. I bought 12 Mic's that ranged between one hundred to six hundred smackers. I wanted to find THE BEST and money was no object. I bought every popular brand you can think of. Some sounded flat and lifeless, some sounded very bright, but harsh. Some sounded muddy. The EV was "just right". In fact, it was perfect. It didn't matter if I was singing softly or screaming into it like Robert Plant. Very clear, dynamic and you can understand every word I'm saying. The best part is price. I honestly couldn't find a single microphone that sounded nearly as good at this price point and yet I was prepared to spend 10 times more to find perfection. Didn't need to go that far at all. Not even close. I sing Baritone but had other friends sing on it who are Tenor and Soprano. This Mic makes EVERYONE sound great which is incredibly difficult to do. Most Mic's only do one thing well. This one does it ALL. I would buy this Mic again and again and twice on Sunday. In fact, I did! I own the plug in and wireless version. Rock on.

I've been using a Shure Beta 58 for years and decided that it was time to get a new mic.I ordered this E/V N/D767a because of the great reviews I'd read about it. It is clearer than the Beta 58 and is more responsive. The Beta 58 is now in my gear bag as a backup.

                          Was singing Friends in low places in a key that was to low ,so when I got to the low part, my Shure sm58 would not pick up the vocals because there was not enough pressure in my voice for the mic to pick it up. Then I got my e/v 757 and it will pick up a soft whisper. It was so good that 3 more people in the band bought them. I've been using mine for 20 years now. Love it. Nuff said.
