Mentioned by recording engineer Richard Dodd in this Sound on Sound interview about the recording of "Learning to Fly".
"One of the amplifiers Mike was using was an open-back Ampeg, and I had a Shure SM57 on that while, to capture some low end, I had the bright idea of also sticking one of those flat PZM microphones onto the amp. It was the Radio Shack mic, not the posh Crown version, and I just blended that in. Being omnidirectional, it gave a little of the environment, and those mics were blended together and went through a Urei 1176. Typically, the pre would be an outboard Neve 1073 or an API, and only things like percussion would use the preamps on the console.
"The same recording method was used for the other guitars, with the exception of the PZM.
The SM57 is also mentioned in this March 1983 Musician article about Tom Petty and the Heartbreaks.
They all use Shure SM57s, are mixed through a Davey Bryson console and are heard through Jensen Bulldogs.
