Move the 57 around and dont stick it a half inch next to the source. I have been very surprised at what I have got for a sound when the capsule isnt pushed against the grill or the mouth.......etc. I will still put a 57 up against any high dollar mic for certain situations. It has been done before. And on many records especially for vocals. Just my opinion. If it doesn't work then grab another mic. Doesn't mean you have to grab it first. A few sesions ago I actually used a 57 inside the kick with a soundelux U195 outside and the sound was amazing when blended. The 57 picked up the snap perfect. This was for a metal band of course. But would love to try a 57 out with a vipre.
