Episode 7 - Are the SM57 and the SM58 really the same microphone?

This is episode 7 of The Metal Shop Podcast! In this episode, I do a comparison between the Shure SM57 and the Shure SM58. I've heard people say that they are essentially the same microphone, and I tackle that by talking about their similarities and differences. I used another Shure mic, the SM7B, to record the beginning and end segments of this episode!

    [All music in this episode was original music that I, Brandon S. Hire, had a hand in writing and recording. The music bed at the beginning and end of the show was created specifically for this podcast, while the music bed at the beginning and end of the Shure comparison segment is a song called Pullout, and was recorded in 2001 by a former line-up of my band Day Nine.
