The SM57 is a MUST for any audio engineer, whether in studio environments or in live audio. It's durable, it's classic, and it's highly versatile. It's got a great mid range with excellent rear rejection with its cardioid polar pattern, making it perfect for just about any use.

One of the best microphones out there!
Great for recording a crispy Snare! I also use it as a substitute of a condenser akg 451 for drums overheads.
You can use it for recording a violin. Insane microphone that is!
