Ultimate mics are harp-optimized versions of these legendary microphones. The Ultimate 57, Ultimate 58 and Ultimate 545 are the shortest, lightest examples of these mics possible, and include an integrated volume control. BMA machines each barrel to precise tolerances in Greg’s own shop. It is made of aircraft aluminum for strength and light weight, and anodized to greatly reduce scratching and keep it looking great. Not only does the shorter length reduce the cable’s leverage on your grip, the center of gravity of the Ultimate mics toward the front, further improving grip comfort. This one features a low-z XLR connector.
Ultimate 545: The Shure 545, frequently referred to in harp circles as “The Paul Butterfield Mic” is the predecessor to the SM57. Tonally it is very similar to the SM57, with slightly less high frequency response in free air, and slightly more “color” to the character of its breakup when cupped hard. The Ultimate 545 has the most “blues mojo” of the Ultimate Microphones.
This microphone is in perfect condition. It is used, but you’d never be able to tell. This offering also includes the custom-machined Blows Me Away premium tapered, polished billet aluminum volume control knob.
