Default Mics

I was hoping someone could help me out with a little schooling on mics. I'm interested in something for vocals . . . nothing that will tip the bank but will be conducive to live play.
Live play ranging from rock session to simple acoustic settings. SM57s and 58s I know are nice for this but anything in addition to this would be nice. For intance, I have a Peavy head and amp with the "1/4 inputs for preamps. If I buy a mic will I need to get an adapter to fit this input or what?

Both of those microphones use XLR connectors. I'm unaware of if they can be converted, but they will have to be converted in some fashion before you can send them into a 1/4" jack.

Simple enough to buy an XLR to 1/4" jack cable, if you're not too particular about a crystal clear noise free sound.
