The Model SM7B dynamic microphone has a smooth, flat, wide-range frequency response appropriate for music and speech in all professional audio applications. It features excellent shielding against electromagnetic hum generated by computer monitors, neon lights, and other electrical devices. In addition to its standard windscreen, it also includes the A7WS windscreen for close-talk applications.
The SM7B is an outstanding choice for the following applications:
The SM7B can be mounted on a microphone stand or hung from a boom. It is shipped in the boom mounting configuration. To set up the SM7B in the microphone stand mounting configuration, proceed as follows:
NOTE: If the tightening nuts do not hold the microphone in position, one or both of the brass sleeves may not be properly seated within all the washers.
Use the standard windscreen for general voice and instrumental applications. Use the supplied A7WS windscreen for close-talk applications, such as voice overs or radio announcements, as it offers maximum protection from plosive breath noise and creates a warmer, more intimate sound.
To install the A7WS, follow these instructions:
