Mic advice?

Recommended Posts

How affordable is affordable?

What is the rest of the gear you will be using?

What is it going to be used to record?

Shure SM57 or SM58 is sometimes used by choice by professionals in expensive recording studios, because they like the way it sounds. Mainly on guitar amps or voice.

With good pre-amps and ad converters the SM57 or SM58 should sound good. Good placement and source is also essential.

There is not a great deal of point on spending a great deal of money on microphones unless you have good ad (analogue to digital converters). You will also need a reasonable set of studio monitors to mix your recordings. You could use headphones but they will need to be fairly accurate (which there is a cost involved in) if you are to mix recordings effectively.
