The Shure PGA 57 XLR is a dynamic cardioid microphone of professional quality, suitable for capturing acoustic or amplified instruments, on stage and in the studio.
The PGA 57 XLR is one of Shure's modern solutions for capturing the sound of any instrument with the highest quality, being especially effective with acoustic drums and guitar amplifiers.
The PGA 57 XLR microphone withstands enormous sound pressure, which allows it to lean against an amplifier's cone or point it at a snare drum without the original sound being distorted, even at high volumes.
The cardioid polar pattern of the PGA 57 XLR isolates the sound source to be captured, minimizing other external sources, making it ideal for live captures on stage or for recording sessions together.
The sound of the PGA 57 XLR is clear, extremely clear, with a defined contour and presence, and an enormous fidelity that does not interfere with the quality of the mixture, providing a very defined original signal.
Its frequency range ranges from 70 Hz to 15,000 Hz, with enormous clarity and responsiveness at medium frequencies, which makes it a great choice for recording or amplifying instruments within that register.
The PGA 57 XLR is perfect for home studios, for its durability, versatility and ability to isolate the instrument from background sounds, but also for stages, where there are plenty of sound sources and structural vibrations.
It is a very resistant microphone thanks to its solid construction typical of Shure microphones, being able to withstand the most rigorous and extreme conditions without failing its function: capturing the best possible sound.
The PGA 57 XLR Performance is a microphone that follows Shure's tradition of creating equipment that can withstand everything, with exceptional performance and incredible value for the potential return on investment.
