Why I Hate The Shure SM7b!!!

Why I Hate The Shure SM7b!!!

If you know me, from any of my comments on forums and groups, you know that I’m no fan of the Shure SM7b. In fact, this is a mic that I have grown to loathe. Hate even.

Now I should say, that I do hesitate to knock any company’s product. Especially one that is fairly priced for people who can’t afford the mics that I typically use. But I also think I wouldn’t be doing my job, in the audio community, if I didn’t share my opinion of this mic.
