Didn't someone start a new thread just yesterday or so about this same topic?

I'd go for the new SM7b. In fact, I did. Twice.

Are you very happy with the SM7B(s)? Have you worked with the SM7's?

Is an SM-7a going to make the music better than an SM-7b?

Yes, I've used both, and was happy with the results I got with both. I found them to be pretty much the same, although my experience with the 7b occured years after the original 7. It's the same thing, tho, if the source warrents an SM7, then either will do.

And yes, like Nathan is alluding, the source is more important here than the model number. The SM7 has a pretty unique and easily identifiable sound. It's a good mic for engineers that are starting out to begin to use their imagination to pair up mics with different sources mentally before they hit record. Get the 7b and get to work!
