Anyone know if there is much, if any, difference in these two mics?
Shure has the answer in their Knowledge Base
As somebody who owns both mics, they do seem to have similar pickup patterns and sound. I prefer the SM57 on my guitar amp because I can get it closer to the signal source. The PG57 isn't bad on guitar, but I prefer it on vocals to the SM57. It might just be because I seem to hear more of my voice in the PG with its pop filter... I don't know why.
Maybe my SM57 isn't working right, because I used to love how it sounded with vocals.
Of course, I prefer a SM58 on vocals in general.
