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.

            Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

            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?
