The Shure SM57 is a cardioid microphone with a 3-Pin male XLR output. Frequency response on the SHure SM57 is from 40 to 15,000 Hz. The mic cartridge is housed in a milled aluminum body making the Shure SM 57 an extremely durable Microphone
Although the Shure SM 57 is suited for both vocals and instruments we recommend the Shure SM 57 for use as an instrument mic and the Shure SM58 to be used as a vocal mic. For outdoor use we recommend using the optional Wind Screen on this microphone rental.
