The Shure SM7B is a staple mic in many studios. You can see us using ours in most of our Live In-Studio videos and it makes it's appearance for vocal tracking in many of our recording sessions. The great thing about the SM7B is that it is relatively inexpensive for a quality microphone, retailing for just $349.00. This mic, like all good mics, performs great in an acoustically treated space. However, since this is a dynamic mic it tends to pick up a lot less of your room if you are trying to record at home or in an unideal environment. It's a great mic to have in your arsenal and if you don't have many mics we'd recommend this as one of the few staples.
