    I've mentioned my Shure SM57 with the TAB Funkenwerk transformer upgrade, as being smoother and more open than a stock '57

    These upgraded Shure's are available through Zen Pro Audio.

    Over at Gearsluz, an engineer just A/B'd a modded SM7b against stock.



    I haven't priced Zen's upgraded SM7, but the TAB 57 runs $200.00

    They sell them pre-modded, but will also retrofit stock mics for a reasonable fee.

    I'm a spazz with a soldering gun, so I don't feel comfortable doing a mod like this myself,
    but if you're handy, the mod should be pretty straight forward if you want to do it yourself.
