We all want the fancy high priced mics. I have some like vintage U87's. But the truth is that sometime condenser are to much sensitive to transient on some instruments or voices. Some high-mid loud voice benefit a lot from a SM7b because the dynamic design soften those agressive elements. In fact this mic was the top producer secret who won't tell a 400$ mic was all they needed. For exemple the Michael Jackson Triller album voices was all recorded using it! The only draw back: It need a hefty preamplifier to drive it. So, If you have a relatively cheap interface it may be that the preamp will need to be cranked up and become noisy. With a good preamp you wont have this problem.

This is a solid dynamic microphone, and finally getting a hold of it now, I can see why people refer to this as the "gold standard" when it comes to dynamic broadcasting mic. But I need to praise that fact that they ship this product to me in one day right after the transaction. While in Amazon.ca when I ordered this, this mic got stuck to "Not yet Shipped" for 4 DAYS! I cancelled the order and got the mic in 3 days. I love you guys, keep up the good work.

Picked this mic back in Feb and I must say.. IT IS AMAZING!!! I do suggest you get a cloud lifter to boost the gain but besides that this is perfect mic for any type of voice work you need to get done.

Industry standard mic at an amazing price! This mic made its start as a broadcast mic but has made a name as a studio mic amongst many great engineers and artists!! Not saying this is the holy grail because mics are very subjective to source, style or music, type of voice etc, but this mic does do many things well! I can name a few things I know that it is proven well on. Vocals, bass and guitar cab, Snare , floor tom, outside kick! Personally Ive only used it on male vox and bass cab! it excels on male rap vox and is a go to standard for rock and metal vox because its a dynamic and can handle very high spl's! all i can say is if your serious about recording or looking for a great mic give this serious consideration, its a beast! Its also got the awsome rolloff and mid boost switch! but ya if your a rapper, rock or metal singer this should be in your arsenal! Im aiming to own 2 minimum!

Paired up with a cloudlifter, you've got a mic built like a tank, that will never quit on you. I've got two in my studio, and as the executive owner of Ward 3 Records, I do not record vocals without using one of these. Take your expensive vocal mic, take a 7B, turn on phantom power and you'll get the best vocals. The bass roll off in the back is a great tool for tracking acoustic guitar as well. I could happily use just the 7B on professional recordings with a little EQ and some nice reverb. I recommend this for LOUD vocals. If you've got a very powerful singer in your studio, or if you yourself are a loud and powerful vocalist, this mic will never distort. As long as your levels aren't too high on your pre amp. I use an AT 40/50 and two of these on either side of my vocalist, with the cloudlifter and an apogee quartet. With the cloud I find, keeping my levels around 1 quarter is more than enough volume. Running into Logic Pro x, and a compressor, you will never hear a complaint about clarity, and functionality. If I could, I would have 100 of these things. Like I said before, they are built like a tank. Very intelligently designed with heavy casing, just pop it on your stand, no shock mount required, and you are all set! A lot of the time a pop filter is not necessary. I hear people saying to get this as a "starter mic". If you've got the right pre amps, and you know how to use your DAW, you can track incredible vocals with this mic alone. I would recommend it to anyone who cares about longevity and tone. It's just a great mic.

What can I say....after years of meticulously searching for the perfect male vocal microphone, I finally found it in the Shure SM7 . I works fabulously on acoustic guitar also, as a bonus! I can now see why Michael Jackson used it on his THRILLER album. Buy one! You will be amazed!!

7B Is no matter what always one of the first mics I reach for. I tend to do a lot of multiple mic patterns recording simultaneously to get a nice balance and character from each mic. The SM7B is the most reliable, forgiving and overall fun mic to use in the studio for Vocals, Guitars, etc. if you own a studio get one of these as a starting point microphone.

Having this mic in your collection is more or less the equivalent of picking up milk/eggs/bread when grocery shopping. It's simply a must-own essential. All of MJ's thriller was done with this mic. If you have never purchased a mic this should really be the first one you buy, after owning this one and getting to know it better... then you can branch out and get a more characterized mic, this one is just perfectly flat and will record anyone's voice without cheaping out on the highs/mids/lows.

Great Mic right here. I work in radio and have used this mic many times. It is an essential in countless studios. Fun fact: Michael Jackson recorded the album "Thriller" with this mic. As soon as I got a few bucks extra this is the next thing I add to my studio.
