The SM57 is still a decent choice for snare. My bread and butter snare mics are the AKG D40 and Sennheiser E838 but my absolute favourite is the Telefunken M80.

I did a search and it seems all the topics are pretty old.  What's everyone using for a snare mic? What do you recommend?  My band is Motown, Soul and some Rock.

I used a SM57 for a long time, switched to Audix i5. Similar to a 57, I think it cuts through a little better. The body length is a little shorter, which does help  a bit when getting crowded with hardware.

My D40 is the least used mic I own.  Once only.

Not a bad sounding mic at all, but the size and arrangement made it difficult to place.

Yes I found the clip configuration a bit of a pain. I've since upgraded this with metal K&M drum mic clamps and these work much better and I'm able to get decent positioning now.

For live systems, I've been using the Beyer Dynamic TG57 or TG58.  These are awesome little mics that have great clips.  Makes setup and strike super simple.  I like how small they are as well, so they don't get in the way of the drummer.
