Shure SM7B by kevgees
Hello fellow gearslutz. Its the holiday season and being the gearslutz that we are, we want another new affordable piece of gear to add to our studio setups. Well, let me introduce you to the Shure SM7B. This is the same microphone that the "King Of Pop" himself, Michael Jackson, used on his most successful album of all time to date, "Thriller". This is one of the best microphones, if not the best to use for vocals in its price range. You can find one online for $350 or less at anytime. I personally own one of these & I'll admit I was hesitant to get one but once I did, "WOW" was I impressed! Its a dynamic microphone, so you will need an audio interface or pre that gives more than -60db of gain to help give it some kick. My personal pre that I use it with is the GAP 73 which is a Neve 1073 clone. This microphone is awesome at not picking up background noises so you can use it in an untreated room at anytime & still get professional sounding results. Its sleek design & various sound settings is a plus as well. Mostly all professional radio stations world wide use the Shure SM7B to broadcast. I would strongly advise anybody with a studio, whether it be a bedroom or professional one to get a Shure SM7B! Happy Holidays!
