FS/FT: Shure SM57 Microphone
This is the industry standard for instrument mics. I'm not really using it much, so I'm looking for an outright sale for $65 or trade for a SansAmp VT Bass V2 (+ cash from me).
Everybody pretty much knows these, but for those interested in the technical blah, blah, blah...here it is:
Delivering a smooth and classic sound, the Shure SM57 handheld professional microphone is an ideal choice for home studio, project studio, and professional studio recordings. The cardioid polar pattern of this Shure microphone blocks out unwanted background noises and focuses on the audio input from the performer. A wide, flat frequency response of 40 -15,000 Hz ensures that the audio recorded by the Shure SM57 retains its natural sound. Moreover, with the Pneumatic shock-mount system, this handheld professional microphone cancels out undesired noise that comes from a cable or microphone. Relying on no external power source, this dynamic Shure microphone is renowned for its rigidity and reliability.
