I use Blue Yeti to record vocal and I am very satisfied by its quality.

You can also record instruments, but vocal sounds especially good.

Shure 58 has been used by bazillions. Cheap, decent sounding, readily available.

I know this thread is a little old, but thought I'd pop-in anyway.

The SM58 tends to be used more for live performances, especially where you need a cardioid pick-up pattern.... The 58 is also a dynamic mic. Usually with studio work you want a condenser mic.

Dynamic mics have a shorter frequency response range, where as condensers usually cover the entire range of human hearing (or at least close to it). The point of dynamic mics is to use something that has a narrower pick-up pattern to reject feedback, and to also reject some of the frequency ranges that only other instruments would put out, like bass guitar.

So for studio work, you definitely want to look for a condenser. To the original poster, if you can swing $300 a Shure SM27 might be reasonable. Also a "pop filter" wouldn't hurt to have; it'll soften some harder consonant sounds.
