Still An Awesome Microphone A Year Of Ownership

First things first, go to a studio or pro audio dealer and test out mics to find the one that works with your vocal style. Now that that's out of the way, I've had this microphone for about year and it is simple awesome. Like any piece of equipment, you need to match it to the source and give it the right support. I use a Focusrite Liquid Channel, and this microphone gives me the accuracy in my vocals, (male, Hip Hop). This mic will take what ever you dish out, just don't use this microphone with a cheap noisy mic pre, then complain about the results, increase noise, etc. There isn't just one microphone for every purpose, so if you buy this microphone, get yourself a good preamp and cables and have a blast. You wouldn't put street tires on a dragster and expect great results would you! Don't short change yourself when purchasing equipment either.

Awesome Miltipurpose mic

The SM7 is the gold standard when it comes to a great multipurpose microphone. I have used it time after time on male vocals and it ceases to amaze me. If you are looking for a microphone that can tame any harsh vocalist this is what you need. The prescense boost and the HPF allow this mic to remain pretty untouched (processing wise) when it comes to mixing. Do you like to use an SM57 on guitars? Try the SM7 and you will never go back! Do you usually use a condenser microphone on HI-Hat? The SM7 allows you to set the mic up and never even touch it in mixing. No matter what your application, you will always get good results with the SM7.

SM7b mic

I just ordered and recieved my shure SM7b and am amazed. This thing is amazing. I have had three sessions since I got this mic. One of the singers loved the mic so much that she wanted to re record all of her previous vocals. Which helped pay for the mic. This thing is so pristine and clean. The vocals are so natural and I can have an acoustic playing right along side of this mic with just a very small amount of bleed over. Great separation for us engineers

AWESOME - product & Sweetwater service

RIGHT ON THE BULLSEYE with this SM7B. EXACTLY what I was looking for. Mine is a 'broadcast' type need. I didn't need any massive preamp either. And I believe I've found THE place for all my audio needs - Sweetwater, of course.

Sweetwater Advice

Brian Dillon

I've recorded with a lot of great mics over the past decade, and the Shure SM7B is definitely on that list. I picked one up when I needed to make my vocals sound thicker, without throwing off the balance. * The SM7B was exactly what I was looking for. Unlike condensers, the SM7B doesn't pick up a lot of ambient noise. That makes it perfect when I need to record in rooms with less-than-ideal acoustics. And when I engage its presence boost, my vocals can cut through any mix, without sounding shrill.

Matt Emick

When paired with a tube preamp, this is my favorite microphone for getting awesome screaming rock vocals. It also excels at aggressive rapping. If you're ready to rock, this is definitely the mic to check out.

Jeff Barnett

You've heard the SM7 hundreds of times... Aside from being a very widely-used mic for broadcast, the SM7 is all over the best selling record ever made, Michael Jackson's, "Thriller." Bruce Swedien, who engineered the album, said: "When we were doing "Off The Wall", "Thriller," and "Bad" I ended up with six Shure SM7s. That is a fantastic mic."

Charlie Davis

Easily one of my favorite vocal mics. However, the SM7B is far from a one-trick pony. If you can get two they make fantastic tom mics, but if one is all the budget will allow, they also work great on electric bass and guitar amps.
