Shure makes a series of mics that are a bit cheaper than the standard SM58...those would be the PG series. If you're seriously short of cash, it's not such a bad investment. I beleive you can pick up the PG series vocal mic for about $60. But really, you should just invest in the 58, as they sound pretty good and will last forever.

The one lesson I learned from years of doing sound and spending lots and lots of money...if you're going to do something, do it right the first time. Sure I bought some cheap stuff when I didn't have the money for better, but in the end your money is better spent on something you'll want to keep using, not something you just plan to replace. My old PG series vocal mic just sat in the mic case once I finally spent the money for some real mics. Just be glad you're not a sound guy, you only need to buy one.

Also I'm not sure on the price to ship to Croatia, but there's a company on ebay called speakerrepair that makes some great color coded XLR cables at a great price...I highly recommend them. Bought a lot of stuff from those guys.

Be sure to do your reasearch guys, some people really rip themselves off thinking buying an expensive mic will do the trick. I purchased a condenser mix for only $400 which I have been using for the past year and the vocal quality is amazing, just as good as some studio condensers which cost around $2000, this is mainly because I have stuck to the fundamentals of learning room acoustics. If you can get your head around understanding your room and how sound travels around differen room shapes and size etc, you can record almost anywhere
