I used the room that I gained when I removed the filter to mount the transformer in the sm7.

I found out later, that the sm57 capsule has the same Z as the sm7.
Tell me what you hear differently? How does the sound change?

Just gathering info before I consider having the tech open one up.

It sounded about the same with a little bit of presence boost in the highmids, but not as much as when the filter did. I noticed it worked better on preamps that I tried before, and the sm7 works well now where the sm58 and sm57 does (don't even need to change the gain when swapping between the three).

Cool, we will explore it.

Here's a before and after on guitar cab (re-amped for repeatability) to hear the difference for a Shure SM7b / possible TAB T58 mod.

It is as extreme as we expected, going from transformerLESS to transformer.

wow, very interesting, I prefer the T58 mic on this guitar amp, sounds really good

but I also like to use the SM7B to fight overly bright amp sounds that people sometimes insist upon. On a darker sound it's not so good though. Like this one.

the T58 one sounds like it would be useful more of the time on guitar.

I wonder how it will sound on voice?

Wow! Excellent demo!

The stock SM7 sounds like it has a blanket on it.

We are in the middle of some ribbon mic videos and doing vocals tomorrow so, I will see if we can make time to track a with and without on voice to post then.

Guitar cabs are very telling and 100% repeatable so it's a good idea of how the response and tone shifts.

People use the term night and day a bit too easily sometimes.

This is night and day!

yea its a little bit more forward sound isn't it?

I like the a t-58. It doesn't sound like I'm bogging down the mic pre with the mic, and all of its mids getting scooped out.

also what is interesting is comparing the mod sm7 vs stock sm57. I like them both on m-s.

Nice results! I guess we'll see the T58 SM7B in the store soon, War?

This TAB SM7B combo sounds very good . I have tried that mic on cabs - gtr and Bass and found them to be a bit too flat sounding . But It works great on Hat or Ride with the top boost . Was this without the top boost ? Would like to hear both versions with top end boost . This would great on a Kick or Bass cab for sure
