Shure announced that it is marking the 50th year of the SM7 microphone, first released in 1973 and primarily designed for professional broadcasting and voiceover microphone applications, by offering 50 units of a limited, numbered, Signature Edition SM7B Collector’s box set.
“In the history of audio, very few microphones have delivered the sound of as many generations of entertainers and creatives as the SM7 family,” said Eduardo Valdes, Associate Vice President of Global Marketing, at Shure. “The fact the SM7B continues to be adopted by new creators, artists, and broadcasters is a testament to the Shure engineers who designed the microphones and all those who have relied on its pioneering audio quality.”
The box set will be available only through a sweepstakes in select regions (United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and France). In addition to the mic, it will include the engraved signature of S.N. Shure, the founder of Shure Incorporated, as well as a set of five custom backplates adorned with vintage Shure logos from 1925 to the 1960s. It will also include custom packaging, a limited-print SM7B poster, heritage booklet, and alternate screw set emblazoned with the classic Shure logo.
