Crimson Audio Orange SM57/SM58 Modification
A premium quality tuned transformer mod for your SM57/SM58, already mounted in a replacement handle.
We all know, own, and love the SM57 and SM58. From the studio to the stage, the SM57 and SM58 have been "go to" mics for guitar cabs, snare drums, vocals, and more. But, sometimes we find ourselves wanting maybe a little more from these loved mics. Maybe a little more richness, a little more depth, or a little more air. Sometimes we want a little less, like a little less mid honk. “Enters Crimson Audio Transformers”. Crimson Audio (along with the help of Front End Audio), has designed two great transformer mods (pre loaded in replacement handles) to evolve your SM57 and SM58!
The Crimson Audio Transformers Orange.SM provides a rich and subtle enhancement, to give your SM57 and SM58 a more ribbon like sound. A deeper low end, smooth rich mids, and a soft yet airy top end, all rounded of with just a touch more output - the Orange transformer sings on guitar cabs, and adds meat to a snare. It also performs very well on kick drums, spot micing on hats, and on vocals. Pair your Orange 57 with a Crimson Audio Transformers Mogaine, and experience the 57 like you never thought possible! The Crimson Audio Transformers Orange will make you fall in love all over again.
We offer a variety of ways to get into this mod. If you have a 57 or 58, just buy the handle and install the mod (you can view our install tutorial video on the "video Clips" tab above). Want that cool Granelli 90 degree mod for snare (or guitar cab/etc)? Well thanks to the partnership with Front End Audio and Granelli Audio Labs, you can add just the conversion kit (elbow and wires only – and only available as an option to the mods), converting your mod to a hotrodded G5790! Or maybe you want to keep your 57/58, and just get a new modded one. Well, you can! Get the mod you want, the cartridge you want (57 or 58), add a Granelli conversion kit (or not), and built the mic yourself. Don't want to (or don't know how to) do the mod? Let us do it. Whether you are building a modded 57/58 from scratch, or you want to send in your 57/58, FEA can assemble and QC the mod for you!
Got questions? Let us know. We will get you taken care of, so you can enjoy the mod and focus on the music!
