The Shure SM7B is a large-diaphragm dynamic mic with a smooth sound and wide frequency range for vocals, speech, and high-SPL instruments

 The Shure SM7B is a large-diaphragm dynamic mic with a sound as hefty as the mic itself. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because the SM7B was the mic that Bruce Swedien used to fatten up Michael Jackson’s vocals on the world’s top-selling album, Thriller. Known to industry insiders for decades, the SM7B excels in a multiplicity of uses: from kick drums to smoothing out hi-hats and cymbals; on bass amps and guitar cabinets when you want thumping rhythm, or to smooth out the fizz of heavy distortion; and also as a broadcast mic, when podcasters and YouTube newscasters want to sound as authoritative as their network counterparts. It features excellent shielding against electromagnetic hum generated by computer monitors, neon lights, and other electrical devices. In short, the SM7B is the go-to mic for high-SPL, low-frequency instruments and smooth, “voice of god” vocals.

Shure SM7B dynamic mic in one take:

  • Wide, smooth, and flat frequency response for ultra clean and natural reproduction of instruments and vocals in professional applications
  • Bass roll-off and midrange presence-boost controls with graphic display of response setting
  • Improved shielding optimized for rejection of hum and broadband interference emitted by computer monitors
  • Internal air-suspension shock isolation virtually eliminates mechanical noise transmission
  • Standard windscreen eliminates need for add-on pop filters, protects against explosive “P-pops” even during close-up singing or speech
  • Also includes the A7WS detachable windscreen, designed to reduce plosive sounds and provide warmer tones for close-talk vocals
  • Yoke mounting with captive stand nut for easy mounting and dismounting provides precise control of microphone position
  • Cardioid polar pattern provides maximum rear rejection and minimum coloration of off-axis sound
  • Rugged construction and excellent capsule protection for outstanding reliability
  • Improved bracket offers greater stability

The Shure SM7B is a dynamic mic for all seasons and reasons. If it’s good enough for MJ, well, that tells the whole story. Order yours now, or for more information, talk to your Westlake Pro Sales Consultant.
