I play bass, provide/mix on-stage, presently a brand-new project still rehearsing.

Heil PR35 works best imho for my thin voice.

For one guy I provide a Sure WH30 condenser headset mic for when he's behind the keys, and an SM-58 on the stand (it's just what I have, and he thinks they're the standard).

SM58 also for the drummer who tries to sing some backups (I'm going to have to limit his vox to his own monitor).

Other guy is switching around with his own stuff for now, just pulled out his Sure 55... that didn't work in his past bands, but I guess he's going to give it another shot here, lol.

A pleasant surprise for me recently has been using a Sennheiser e965 for singing drummers. There's bleed there, of course, but it sounds good enough that you can use it to build the drum sound.

Really liked the e965 with the people I've used it with, better than the Beta 87a.

My main go to that I use on events where I donít know the vocalists in the Sennheiser e838. I find these have greater clarity, lower handling noise and less susceptible to feedback. They are a great workhorse mic that sounds great on most things!
For singers I know, I may reach for something like my Telefunken M80, Sennheiser e945 or Audio Technica ATM 710.

I've been putting in a bit more time with the 965s on recent gigs, and have been consistently impressed:

- Set to super cardioid, there's just about enough side/rear rejection to get a quiet-ish singer 4" off the mic up to a decent level over a noisy stage. Just.
- As a general-purpose mic, they do really well. Saturday's gig was a St. Paddy's Day festival, and they got used for a range of vocalists, plus washboard, bodhran, bongo-cajon (yes, really), and some others I've probably forgotten.

Oh, and they work fine on cabs as well.

IMO, a small-but-welcome step up from the e935.

Has anyone ever tried singing into Sennheiser's e906 guitar cab mic. I tried one the other day on some other instruments and the results were not good, yet they're so good on guitar speakers? I wonder if they're any good for vocals?

Back in the day Pink Floyd and the Doobie Brothers used the original 409 on vocals at one point.
