Sounds awesome! You see, this is the thing about the SM57. That guitar sound just soft and dull, right up until the second the rest of the band kicks in, and then it's just 100% the sound of rock 'n' roll. And that snare could almost be a tom. Is that a problem? No, because all you need is a "hit".
Yeah, you can generally make an SM57 work. Actually, with some care and intuition, you can always make it work, at least for rock music. Out of both ignorance and poverty, SM57's are all I used for years. It's not a great mic. Actually, it kind of sucks. But if you want to sound like this, well, it's the way to do it.
- It looks just like a Telefunken U47 - with leather. You'll love it ...
- Jazz is not dead - it just smells funny.
- It doesn't make much difference how the paint is put on as long as something has been said. Technique is just a means of arriving at a statement.
