The ultimate answer is when you try them out.I have different kinds of 1 to 4 transformers, and I will check them out.
I believe the "altered 58" has no transformer, just the capsule direct. It's a quite common mod to SM57's also.The sound does not get as good as a sm7, but it gets closer, IMO..
Even with my 73 yo ears, I could detect the nasty fizz from the 58; I was not foolds one second.
