      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.

          Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

          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.

                      Comments about Shure SM57, Stand & Cable Package:

                      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.
