SM57 Mod

I’m prepared to do this mod for people, but you can save money by doing this stuff yourself.

Be aware that in chopping off the ‘ribs’ of one 57 (not shown) with the tin-snips, the ring of the plastic grille cracked! I had to glue it back together and fasten it with the foil tape bearing the SM57 name, before it would hold the little plate securely. The resulting mic is fine, but it underscores the obvious fact that when hacking apart SM57s with tin-snips and pliers, you could just possibly break something.

Cheers! :)
