What We Think

One of the most common choices for a "desert island microphone," the SM7B is a cardioid large-diaphragm dynamic mic with a smooth, flat, and wide-range frequency response. Most commonly seen on vocals and speech/VO applications, the SM7B also excels on loud sources such as drums, brass, hi-hat, guitar and bass cabinets... and many more.
