TERRIBLE CABLE but stand and mic are ok

        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.

          If you are not using the SM-57 or SM-58, you really need to. I have been using these mic's forever and have two 30 years old and still sound great.

          Classic mic with no flaws, decent cable, but the stand. The stand isn't really worth the package. Would gladly pay 20 extra for a good stand to come along with it

            Everything works perfectly. Microphone is durable and really isolates the sound you want. Perfect for micing amps for guitar, bass, etc.

            Excellent value. With a 10 rebate I pay the exact same price for just the microphone but I get a free stand and cable.

                Bought this Shure 57 to mike a djembi drum. By simply placing the mike a few inches from the fluted bottom of the drum I am able to shape its sound with no feed back at the mixer. It truly is an all purpose standard of the industry yet inexpensive mike.

                    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.
