Mic of my dream

Back to the Gear Room

I instantly love two mics. Shure SM57 with deep bass (thanks to proximity effect) and Audix Fireball with clear and sweet highs and mids. I wanna mic which has all these features. Maybe it's possible to remove grill from fireball and replace it with 57-like small grill? Any other ideas?

Confession: selfish interest within..... ;)

One solution that gets you close is an SM57 with a volume control, like the Ultimate 57. The 57 DOES have clear mids and highs - you just have to get your hands further away from it than you do with the Fireball. That means the volume might drop too much. SO - you set up for "hands free" play, and then back off the volume with your pinky when you want to cup it hard and get that wonderful bassy grit.

Good idea too. I do this often while playing with small band when no drums with sticks (brushes only) and no electric guitars. For louder gig it doesn't work without volume control. You make me wanting ultimate more and more.

The other problem is reducing volume reduce gain while I playing to tube amp.
