In my little kit I have 3x SM58 and a SM87. I'd like to experiment with some Audix mics - Sometimes I wish my 58's had a tighter pickup pattern, but I really don't like the presence peak of the b58.

I've had good results with beta57's a couple of times, but I don't own any.

I had good results with singers bringing their own Beta57 as well (which I do not own too).

Still hold firm on my SM57 recommendation. I use them for everything.
Second that.
Use them for just about everything as well.
Or even a 58 sometimes.

I have only one, and almost never use it. For each situation, I have something I like more, but a different microphone each time. It is not a bad microphone, it's a good all rounder that I used a lot when I had few mics in my locker. I think an Audix D2 would be a better all rounder though: usable on almost the same situations, slightly more expensive, better sound to my ears. I never tried the SM57 nor the D2 on vocals.

I suppose its all up to personal preference.
Everyone has different ears.

- Shure SM58, just because.
- Senn e835, similar to SM58 but better IMO. Got it in wireless as ew 135 G3 currently.
- Shure SM86, sleeper and new favorite!

Ideally, I'd like a Shure UHF-R rig in the future with SM86's or 87's, NOT the beta!

Try SM87 out before committing to it. I did not like it compared to SM86 or Beta 87. It sounded boomy for my taste.

Shure Beta 87A, KSM9, and Earthworks WL40V (wireless capsule of the SR40V)

I second everyone that the AKG C535EB is a very good vocal mic, and also the discontinued Beyer TG-X 80

I don't care much for the Beta 58A.  We use them for speech only and offer them as a "free upgrade" to the SM58 in the rental inventory.

Cheers,
JR

I made a sticky for this, just like the "kick drum" thing.

Have at it.
audix om7 just a good crisper sound
