The Legendary SM57 That's Easy to Position!

The studio workhorse turns 90 degrees! The G5790 is a modified SM57 shaped to make your studio and stage miking tasks even easier - with that same industry-standard sound. Granelli Audio Labs uses a brand-new Shure SM57 and inserts a custom-made aluminum part with a special acoustically engineered internal sound path to make the microphone sound exactly how you trust it to sound. This means you've got the renowned ruggedness and familiar tone with even more functionality. Every stage or studio engineer needs a Granelli Audio Labs G5790!

Granelli Audio Labs G5790 Modified SM57 Dynamic Microphone at a Glance:
  • Gives engineers an edge
  • Changes the shape, not the sound
  • Durability and quality

Gives engineers an edge
The G5790 gives engineers more options when miking crowded drum kits, so you can choose a position that minimizes unwanted bleed and doesn't obstruct the drummer. It also creates a neater appearance and takes up much less space on stage when miking speaker cabinets, percussion, and a number of other sources.

Changes the shape, not the sound
Inside the handle of the G5790 is a small acoustic chamber that affects the tone of the microphone. Granelli's patent-pending design manages to change the shape of this chamber without increasing the air volume. That is critical to keeping the sound that engineers know and trust. Granelli did not adjust the frequency response, alter the pickup pattern, or change any other components inside the microphone. It's still the mic engineers love, with the mod it's always needed.

Durability and quality
The part that Granelli Audio Labs has added is machined out of a solid block of aluminum and then threaded into the original microphone's body. Their modifications are done by hand without the use of power tools, welding, or any other process that may harm the original microphone. Each unit is individually tested after modification, and guaranteed by a two-year warranty through Granelli Audio Labs.

Granelli Audio Labs G5790 Modified SM57 Dynamic Microphone Features:
  • Modified SM57 dynamic microphone
  • Includes a zippered carrying bag and a mic stand adapter
  • Changes the shape of the SM57 for easier positioning
  • Retains the familiar sound of the workhorse industry microphone
With the Granelli Audio Labs G5790, you've got the famous SM57 in an easy-to-position design!

Great mic and fits in tight spaces

Keeps the treasured SM57 sound while turning it 90 degrees. Perfect for tight spaces, and we use it on a snare within a drum enclosure at church. It just works. Worth the extra $$ because space, for us, is at a premium.

Perfect mic for drums

Randy Akins was very helpful as usual in guiding me to all the right gear. This mic is perfect on my drum toms and makes my life easier when drummers randomly hit mics that are shaped like a regular 57.
Music background: Jack off all trades

This Mic has Personality!

I recorded on the Along Those Lines full length album with this mic, and i definitely recommend it! It takes up close to no space over the snare drum eliminating the worry of bulky mics getting in the way during fast maneuvering around the kit. It finally allows you to be yourself on the kit.

The mic to have in the studio and an stage!

The must have mic, the SM-57 is now even better as the G-5790. This modification makes this mic more flexable and easier to place in tight spots, the ones where the 57 works best, snares and amps. Well worth the extra 50 bucks.

Fantastic mod - Perfect for drum vocals!

With a shure a2ws windscreen attached, it is perfect for drum vocals. Stays out of the way, but is rugged enough to get hit a few times as well.
Music background: Profesional drummer
