A true workhorse
Sompn Brurl, 14.05.2020
Probably built even sturdier than the sm57, this mic is an all around good tool for capturing sound. It has a powerful output and good anti-feedback characteristics, so it's perfect for live applications. It works great on vocals, except that it's pop filter is only a cloth-like material put inside around the mesh. Not ideal, but it works and I've seen many singers using it.

It shines the most on guitar amps, it captures more information on mid - high mids than the sm57 which is also muddier, but beta doesn't have that bright snap 57 is known for. I don't prefer using it for snare because it lacks the punch, also somehow makes area around 350 - 600 Hz ringy.

It's a bit pricey, but we know what we pay for - quality and reliability by Shure.

Great value!
DMM , 11.11.2020
Great mic for snare and vocals!! Brighter and softer sounding than the standard 57 with nicer sounding bleed overall. Not much to say here. Good value for the money.

Shure need i say more
Daniel B. 502, 14.11.2017
Here you are receiving a quality microphone at a great price. I have a couple and have multiple uses for them in my studio. As my old studio wizard once said 'if you have only a few quality mics, you have the world at your fingertips'. This is definitely true of this work horse. I have one on my snare drum and toms and with the tiniest compression this has a beautiful fat sound. Vocals also sound good through it and I've even recorded a sax with great results. Don't be scared to throw it in the mix of applications you wouldn't normally think. You will be pleasantly surprised with the results.

I personally so far have never had a problem with any shure product I own and quality in build as well as design is why. get one of these and you wont be sorry.

Good improvement from the original 57 counterpart
TARushton, 11.06.2020
So far I've use the Beta57 on guitar amps and micing snare/toms on drums and this mic thrives in those situations.

After doing some shootouts with the original 57, the overall sound is almost the same as the original but with reduced bleed so when used for close micing on a drum kit it sounds slightly clearer. The construction also feels a lot sturdier than its original counterpart with the new mesh head.

There aren't any cons for this mic as far as I've been able to pin point and I intend on building an army of them in the future
