This MB75 mic versus an SM57

It's never easy being forced to re-think your whole ethos on things like microphones. We're all told from day one in sound engineering that for snare drums, brass instruments, guitar amps and even vocals, the Shure SM57 is king. Consequently I have several of them, and have happily used them for years, thinking I was in the "can't go wrong" zone.

And then I had cause to buy a Thomann MB75, just for a small recording project that didn't really warrant getting another '57. So just out of interest, I thought I'd compare the MB75 with one of my '57s.

With the help of a friend, I recorded a snare drum track and a vocal track. Each track was recorded at the same time but with two mics - the MB75 and the '57. Then we solo-ed each track and did a comparative listening test, on both the vocal and snare track.

The MB75 won on all counts - on both tracks. I have to say, it didn't win hands down; it was a close-run thing. But it definitely won.

On the snare track, the MB75 had a warmer, rounder sound than the '57 with a slightly more pleasing mid-range. The '57 in comparison had a slightly honky sound with a nasal sharpness in the mid that would probably need a bit of EQ to smooth out. As I say, the differences were not huge, but they were definitely there. We even tried blind listening tests to make sure we weren't being influenced by knowing which one was which, and we did this by one person turning his back so he couldn't see which track was muted, then playing one track then the other. The two different tracks - and consequently the two different mics - were easily identified.

We did broadly the same thing with the vocal tracks. The same vocal performance was recorded with the two mics, and compared in an A/B fashion. The MB75 had a smoother sound without the pronounced mid that seemed to come through on the '57. We did both speech and singing, and the same was true for both. Although the differences were not huge, they were real and again, in blind tests, both mics were easily identified.

None of these differences were so great that the mics could not be made to sound identical with the judicious use of EQ, and of course some people may prefer the slightly more "middle-y" sound of the '57 rather than the smoother sound of the MB75 (although I can't think why - the MB75 definitely sounded nicer!). But of course if you rely on EQ to get the sound you want rather than have the mic do it for you, then you're using up valuable resources and processing power on your computer (or whatever multi-track device you have). In my humble opinion the closer you can get to the sound you want WITHOUT using your EQ, the better. This mic, surprisingly, gets closer to that sound for me than an SM57, on both vocals and snare drum.

We didn't do a comparative test on handling noise - given that a mic of this nature is hardly ever hand-held, we didn't think it was relevant. But, if it's of any consequence at all, the MB75 did feel a tiny bit lighter in the hand. But only by an ounce or so.

And then of course you look at the price! It kind of makes it a no-brainer, really. With the MB75 being about a quarter of the price of the '57, I'm really at a loss as to why I didn't buy several of these things years ago, and save myself processing power on my computer... not to mention hundreds of pounds!

This mic is highly, highly recommended. Excellent sound compared to an SM57 and truly amazing value for money! Go for it!

I have been buying microphones for over 30 years and have always stuck with the traditional choices - SM58 for vocals, SM57 for instruments, backing vocals etc. and have never strayed away, put off by reports of low quality with the lesser known and priced alternatives.

I was looking for an instrument mic for my studio and headed towards the SM57 but I have been seeing lots of rave reports about the t.bones including several instrument tests where these mics were used to record the sounds.

Being a regular Thomann user and always impressed with everything I've ordered I took a chance and ordered one.

First impression was very favourable, nice weight and quality feel, included lead and adaptor good to have too. Setting it up and doing a test recording highlighted its good response - trebles nicely recorded with a good overall balance just as would be expected from a 57 type mic.

I have since used this for all my instrument recording and for guide vocals - a pop guard is needed for this as it is very sensitive to popping if you get too close.

For the price it is unbeatable and I will certainly be buying more and will give their others in the range a try!

The t.bone MB 75 is an excellent buy. Usually you'd have to fork out on a Shure SM-57 to get a great instrument mic but Thomann's own brand does the same job at a fraction of the cost. It's a nice slimline design and light in weight too. The response against the amp is very good. This mic works best with a guitar cab scenario and less of a vocal scenario. Being a musician isn't cheap and for an item you might not have to use all that often it's a valuable buy. Thomann are great to deal with and items arrive well on time.

Surprisingly good!!

I was looking to chose a mic for my amp and spent a fair bit of time reading reviews, particularly on thomann product pages. I got fed up reading and trying to decide so just went and placed my order for this, and was so surprised, in a positive way, to how good this mic is. I will definitely be picking up another, soon.

I own three of these microphones and they are probably my most used mics. There is almost no difference in the sound quality or manufacturing quality of these mics to that of the SM57 and i would actually recommend this microphone over the SM57 just because they are around 1/4-1/3 of the price but just as good.

A downside is that they just come in flimsy cardboard box instead of a plastic case which makes them a pain to transport around.
