The best bang for the buck!!!

The Shure SM7B is a must have microphone for recording applications. Can't believe I waited so long to get one. In addition my sales rep Michael Baldonado recommended the Cloudlifter which boosts the SM7 and the mic really shines that much more. The Cloudlifter also works great when using the RE 20s, 57s and 421's. Simply awesome for tracking electric guitar . My clients love the sound and you will too!!! It's a winner.

This microphone is just what I've been looking for! At last my search is over. I feel like an idiot spending 100 dollars on a usb mic. I should have went straight for this one. The USB mic I was using is a joke compared to this baby. My Brother screamed as loud as he could into this microphone and it captured it perfectly. He sounded like a rockstar! Now I feel inspired to make music! This mic could easily be a 1000 dollars and it would still be worth it.

The BEST purchase for your studio

I originally purchased this mic after using it to record my vocals and it is hands down awesome. A few years later we went in to record our third album and this mic ended up on EVERYTHING. We used it on my guitar cabs, the bass cab, heck, we even used it on the kick drum. It just sounds good wherever you put it. I know that all microphones color the sound in their own way but this one is VERY true to the ear. I want to purchase a couple more, one as an additional and another for backup. Get it, seriously.

I was shocked!

this mic has left me nearly speechless....i stumbled across it and was very intrigued by the i bought it.....placed it on my guitar cab and within seconds i was smiling from ear to literally cannot get this mic to sound bad no matter where you place it on your guitar cab. rich, full, creamy and present without any harshness. this is by far the best mic i have ever seen to capture my guitar tone as i have ever sounds like what your ears hear. so that you can put these comments into perspective here are some of the best guitar tones i love; EVH (dave days), eric johnson, david gilmour, george lynch, andy timmons, andy summers, alex life son, john petrucci, joe bonamassa, warren haynes and brain may. so if you agree that these guys have great tone most of the time then trust me when i tell you this mic is PERFECT to record your guitars with. now that leaves the vocals.......superb, once again, whether i sang or tried to nearly scream or sing as loud as i could the mic easily handled it and sounded as smooth as butter in the process. for this price EVERY studio owner should have this mic in their locker.....but it now, you wont be sorry.

Sweetwater Advice

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."

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.

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.

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.
