Was this one done yet?

What's the difference between an onion and an SM7B?
Nobody cries when an SM7B is being chopped up.

"SM" allegedly could stand for sado masochism but what about 7 and b?

Sm7s are so smart. If you motion to them and say "stay", they will.

Brandi Carlile won a Grammy in 2019 for best American Roots Song- the song was entitled, THE JOKE.

It was recorded on an SM7.

For real.

Ask Dave Cobb.

You have to trust Cobb- he has great ears.

Corny joke.

The SM7 is now outlawed in Texas, you can even get arrested for buying one in another state, and Florida audio schools are prohibited from even mentioning it in their curriculum.

I saw eight or nine of them traveling by bus, dressed up like re20s with big caps & sunglasses on. They sort of spread out in the bus so that no one knew they were together. Think they were headed to Austin.

Let alone the fact that it doesn't even need a preamp.
But it needs a Fethead or cloudlifter (pre preamp or mic booster) since it needs a lot of boost or a special mixer or audio interface that can boost it enough. SO you would also need phantom power (which is a preamp) to boost the Cloudlifter. SO the Shure sm7b is not enough if you have a less empowering/amplifying audio interface or mixer. Hence the statement about not needing preamp is well, incorrect in many situations.
As for myself I use the Samson Q2U which costs 1/5th of the price of the Shure and with enough insulation/isolation it sounds about the same. And it does not need any preamp or cloudlifter. It is very low in noise from the surroundings i.e. reverberation build up.
I just bought the Aston Spirit and I have a hard time deciding whether to just use the Samson or find a way to avoid sharpness in my voice with the Aston Spirit. But that may be a matter of mic handling since it is more sensitive. See at 3:55 for info regarding boosting Shure sm7b https://youtu.be/cgMc-BBOct4

There is a cartel in Mexico that consists of a dozen smugglers. They will get them across the border to Texas.
But if they are caught, Abbott will put them on a bus to NY.
I hear B&H will harbor them, and you can go there and sponsor an illegal SM7B.

Ok so the first post "SM7 sounds so good I don't even have to record the performance! In fact it sounds so awesome your ears can't percieve any sound coming from it!" refers to the high need for amplification?
