If you are an active gigger, or recording artist, there is no doubt you’ve run across at least one of these mics. Extremely cheap, extremely reliable, and great sounding. Although this is mainly a vocal mic, it can used it for instruments, even drums, and gotten an acceptable sound. If you have big bucks, it would not recommend this best shure sm58, because there are many other expensive mics that would do vocals much better. However if you are a low budget musician, then it would highly recommend this mic for vocals, and as a last resort for instruments.
