Default Mics and more mics ...

I belong to the old school. Senheiser and an awful lot of microphones are good but Shure are still ahead in the front of house and backline world. They stand up to a lot of abuse before they stop working! The better vocal mic is still the 58 range. The SM58 is good but Beta58 will give an extra 3dB lift getting the vocalist up a bit higher before feedback sets in, using a Sabine Workstation.
I have never found a band that is unhappy with Beta58's and drummers do like Beta52's, they are on a par with the very old 110. SM57 is a good all rounder for micing up Marshall/HiWatt/Vox and most backline, producing a good workable signal for the desk.
