The 57 is remarkably similar to an SM7B when you use the large A81WS foam windscreen. I can't tell them apart other than the hotter signal from the 57 because of the transformer.
Not the President, but the Queen of Soul. If anyone has watched the recently released Amazing Grace church concert of Aretha Franklin from 1972 you'll see her using the SM7b and SM57's podium ancestor in the Shure line. Sounds pretty good, but then it is Aretha Franklin.
