The Shure SM57 is thought by most to be the cheapest, most durable, most flexible multi-purpose mic in the morld. I once worked with a band that miked their entire drum kit with nothin but 57's.

Yeah, its the "no. 2 pencil" of the live sound engineering world, and they're dirt cheap. The SM58 is the vocal mic equivalent of the 57. perfec investment if you want to start a band and plan on doing any singing.

Studio mics tend to be of higher quality and, subsequently, more expensive......WAY more expensive, but there's nothing wrong with using the mics I reccomended for studio work. Ya' gotta start somewhere, and not a lot of people have $2000 to spend on a vocal mic.

you can functionally mic an entire drumset with 57's, however i dont reccomend it. go beta for the kick drum and if you can most pencil condensors on the toms, but i love the sound of the 57 on the snare. my band recently self recorded our last cd at our studio. we used 57's for guitar cabinets, and used 57's on our floor and snare tracks. i think it came out really well. if you want to check out what they can do www.myspace.com/harbor567
