The SM57 is a fine mic, my complaint is in the quality of the stand and cable that are included in the package. I would gladly pay a bit more for a higher quality and slightly longer cable. The mike stand is cheap as well, lacks stability, and is awkward to configure to mic and amp. I like the convenience of the packaged set-ups, maybe you could have a "good", "better", and "best" option for those of us who would like better quality and are willing to pay for it.

    Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

    TERRIBLE XLR CABLE. I purchased about 10 of these and all the XLR cables gave out. The XLR cables are cheap and unreliable and you are better off buying separate and paying a bit more for a cable that will last.

      Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

      You're going to need an SM57 or 3, and you'll be needing a boom stand and cable with it, why not save a bunch of cash and get 'em together. The stand is as good as an on-stage/pro-line stand, and the cable is pretty decent. Not the best cable, but it'll do.

          Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

          AWESOME DEAL! I've read some less than good reviews about the mic-stand. I found it great for what it is, fully adjustable and has not tipped over at all. The SM57 is a must-have on your gear box, amazing clarity and very durable. I recently added the windscreen to avoid any "puff" sounds so I can use it for vocals. This is and amazing mic, however it is very UN-forgiving when singing into it, if you miss a note, it will punish you mercilessly about it (in other words it will make you hear your mistake in a very crisp manner). Not a big deal, just raises the standard of the sound you put into it. I have not tried yet for acoustic instruments, so I cannot attest to that level of quality. But for vocals it has been extraordinarily clear. This is a purchase you won't regret, I didn't.

            The SM57 is a great mic! I use it in my studio for micing, amps and drums. I have several in my collection. I recently bought the SM57, mic cable and stand mainly to add another SM57 to my collection. The quality of the cable and stand isn't very good. I will use them in my studio and not live performances. Not transporting them around to gigs will, hopefully, make them last.

              Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

              This package is a GREAT deal for the money. The SM57 is such a work horse and to package it with a cable and mic stand is even better. Yeah the cable and stand aren't the "best" quality but they are great to have as extras in the studio or at a live gig. And you get both of those for only a few bux extra in this package. Great buy, you can't go wrong.

                  I have been using this mic on all my gigs for over 40 years. Never lets me down. I bought a new one as my older mics, which are still great sounding, are showing a lot of wear and tear. But, get an inexpensive A2WS windscreen if you are singing close to the mic to eliminate any breathing sounds. I bought the package with the extra cable and stand although I really didn't need it, but for a small amount, why not have an extra backup?

                            I purchased this Mic, Stand, and cable as my first microphone experience. I purchased this to compliment my acoustic guitar live sound. I am playing through a Roland AC60 and the sound is very nice. I actually like the sound of the Shure mic through the amp over plugged in to my pickup on my Taylor acoustic.

                            The Shure SM57 is very easy to use for the amateur, has very good sound, and is very durably made. I am not a mic expert by any means and there are certainly better mics for acoustic play, but this is an excellent buy for your first go at micing an acoustic instrument. The stand is very good also: I can see having some adjustment problems because the adjustment points are not great designs, but I basically got the stand for free as a kit with the mic and cable. The verdict is still out on the cable - we'll see how it holds up after some use. I highly recommend this product as a kit or the mic by itself.

                              The mic stand was better than I expected. The XLR mic chord looks like an average to below average chord. However, I haven't had the need to use it yet as I have many XLR chords. The SM57 mic is a standard fo miking amps. I had a SM57 before this one. It lasted about nine years.

                              A Shure SM57 is hard to beat.

                                There's not much more to say about the Shure SM57. It's a standard that others measure themselves against. Throw in a cable and stand and this is a great deal.
                                The stand is OK. It's pretty stable but once you get the boom out about half way you really have to crank on the stop to keep it from sagging. The retaining bolt for the boom is rough on the bottom and scratches the finish pretty easily. But it works and you get what you pay for.

                                  I basically purchased the package for the microphone. I needed a microphone stand but purchased a better cable at the time. I love the Shure microphones. I was not expecting much from a free cable, so that was as expected. the mic stand though was cheaper construction than I had hoped. I didn't expect a top of the line model either at this price, but the ability to tighten and loosen the height control without grabbing the entire post, would be nice.

                                  My recommendation, if you want an SM57, then buy it and buy the stand and cable you want, you will be better off.
