Yes yes yes

Got this mic because of its reputation for handling "aggressive" vocals as well as its quality, durability, and versatility. First time I plugged it in to record a pass I instantly knew how it got its reputation. It's a solid mic. It's perfect for what I do (scream vocals etc...). It has that "built in compressor" feel to it. Pretty unique. I had been using Blue mics (condensers) as well as a Flux, and while they're great mics - this mic just wins over those for my application. I highly recommend this one for sure. So many possibilities.

Amazed by this Mic

I checked out this mic because I hear that Jeff Tweedy from Wilco used it on several of his most recent albums. I love the sound of his vocals so I checked it out. This mic is nothing short of amazing. Much more than I expected. I have been using a Studio Projects C-1 and though it is a good mic, I was having to wet it and EQ it a bit much. I recorded a vocal line and compared the two. The SM7B sounded much better without much less effects and absolutely no EQ. It was perfect. Clear and punchy but not too bright. This mic is perfect for my voice which is in the tenor range No more struggling with my vocal sound..Awesome. I am using this mic through a focusrite ISA one and it matches beautifully.

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.

Needs Lots of gain but, it sounds perfect for Metal Vocals.

Sweetwater Advice

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.

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 SM4B 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.

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."

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.
