    Here is a little technical secret regarding the Shure SM 7 microphone that makes it different from the popular SM58. The microphone capsule in the SM57 & 58 are very close to the front screen of the microphone. Where as in the SM 7, they capsule is actually midway down that long foam pop filter. So no matter how close you get to the front of the microphone, you are still a good 1 1/2 inches away from the front of the capsule. This changes the whole ball of wax so that you can never get to close to the capsule. This makes a huge difference in proximity effect & overload. So it's a smart choice if you are a screamer. Personally, I've never gotten angry enough at a microphone to scream at them. Digital recorders perhaps, computers perhaps but rarely microphones.

    If you want to scream on a SM58, purchase an additional foam pop filter. Then purchase a second foam pop filter to place upon the first pop filter. You'll love it.
