I never said you did, read my post again. It's a hypothetical inference based upon your comments like "low-mid muck" and "almost always use a HPF."

My point is that I'm better off leaving it the way it is. Taking out the transformer isn't going to make it "better" it's going to make it "different."

I'm not upset, bro! From what I understood from your words, you weren't talking about just one session...Re-read your post. You say that basically once you have the mod and another high-end piece of gear (which you also sell,) you can use the 57 on a vocalist in the room with a full band successfully (which is kind of odd; I would think the "increased detail in the highs" would increase bleed.) That's what you've found, and that's cool. Lots of people have been doing it for years (without the mod) and it sounds just fine. "YMMV."

If my intended application calls for a SM57, then I'll use a SM57.

I'm sure the mod will make lots of people happy!
