Basically, I got one from Ebay. The end of it... grill end (It must have a technical term) can be swiveled 360, and the bit below it poked out a bit. If I shake the mic, it also shakes, making noise.

Is this a bad, damaging factor?

The 'grille end' on mine rotates as well, I've never had a problem with it. Was yours new & sealed? You could have easily got a fake - there are far too many floating around on ebay.

I think it's a fake....the SM57 band is a sticker, despite the type being correct.

That's usual, if you google "ways to spot a fake sm57" there should be a couple of guides. Does the microphone work? To be honest even if it is a fake, most fakes aren't all that bad - if it works use it!

The resistance is under 300 ohms. Should be 400. Is slightly lighter than most, it has 3 wires instead of only the two green and yellow ones...

Really? How much so? It's nearly half the resistance. Is this gonna affect its performance in anyway?
