    The pop filter is for a side address mic and the 57 is an end address and the 57 is at the large end only 32 mm so no this won't work. Not sure why you would need a shockmount (as a 57 is a very low handling noise mic usually mounted in a hard clip) but assuming you do do this for $5.00

    Add a foam windscreen filter from your local radio shaft or buy a SM58 pop filter included, thats what the ball is a 57 with a pop filter

    Shure actually makes a couple of shock/isolation mounts for the SM57 as well as windscreen/pop filters designed specifically for the SM57 and as jg49 mentioned the SM57 is designed for direct head on use.

    Okay, do you know where I can get one of the shock mounts?
