The SHURE SM57 Instrument Microphone is one of the most legendary wired instrument microphones for renting, which has proven its outstanding sound performance, rugged build quality and reliability over decades. It is a powerful workhorse when it comes to live stage application.

Being an instrument microphone, the Shure SM57 has a bright and rich sound with contoured frequency response. A cardioid pickup pattern that accentuates the sound you want to capture while rejecting most of the surrounding sound and noise from other performers, crowds and speakers, making it less likely to create feedback and unwanted room reflections, providing a cleaner sound to the sound engineer or directly to a PA system.

Highlight offers this product for dry or full production hire in Sydney, depending on your needs. You can even, hire the product for multiple days and get a really competitive price, plus we only charge you for the days that the item is being used and not for the transportation/setup dates.
