The Shure SM-7B Dynamic Microphone. …a Classic Radio/Studio Performer
All business. Decades ago, that was my first impression of the Shure SM-7. Today, it remains unchanged. Arriving in a plain white box, the unassuming SM-7B waited for a test drive to come alive. Unique styling, solid performance and durability that should last a lifetime. That’s the SM-7 I know.
