Shure SM57-LC Cardioid Dynamic Microphone
The legendary Shure SM57 is exceptional for musical instrument pickup and vocals. With its bright, clean sound and contoured frequency response, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording.
The SM57 has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern that isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. In the studio, it is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds.

This is the one - bulletproof, full sound, clear, clean and bright - the Swiss army knife of microphones. Paul Rodgers of Bad Company recorded all his vocals with one of these - some of my studio clients prefer to sing on this mic for recording, instead of an expensive large diaphragm condenser. You can't go wrong with an SM57, and you will want more than one, cause they reproduce the sound of everything so well
