This is the ZenPro mod SM57, which is transformerless (and voids the warranty).
We remove the transformer and straight wire it to the XLR connector, plain and simple.
We offer the Shure SM57 modified several different ways, please see our other listings.
The legendary Shure SM57 microphone is exceptional for musical instrument pickup and vocals. With its bright, clean sound and contoured frequency response, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. In the studio, it is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds.
The SM57s outstanding performance, legendary reliability, and diversity of application make this "workhorse" the choice of performers, producers, and sound engineers worldwide.
