    Shure SM58 or beta 58 for vocals, sm57 for instruments : they are robust and efficients.

    Although I agree that an SM58 is not the best choice for most recording situations, this statement is plain nonsense. You can plug an SM58 into any ordinary mixer and it will work.

    Not after that statement, I wouldn't :(

    Try out Superlux for drum mikes. Used them in a live situation a while ago and they did a great job. Pretty cost efficient as well. (Keep in mind that we didn't use you overhead condensors for the drums as we used some high end condenser mikes). Good luck to all.:cool:

    a good cheap allround condenser is the Behringer B1 or B2

    A very good all-around all-use microphone would be the SM58 from Shure, it's well build and *very* versitile.
