Pull the transformer out of one and try it on snare. The only thing I’ve used that’s as consistently good on snare is the Sennheiser 541.

Funny enough, I do like my transformerless 57 on a lot of things when I’ve tried it, but the 2 things I didn’t like it on are snare and guitar. On vocals it can be very cool though.

People really must hate these things, they're so unpopular and seldom seen...

Popular and GOOD don't always go together

my test of how good or bad a microphone is for my applications is to find out experimentally how many exclusively of the same type it can use on a stage: with schoeps this can be up to ca. 100, with sm57's however (at least tzhe last time i tried), i avoid more than 4 (to a maximum of 6); anything more than this i find to be 'un-eq-able'...
