    The SM57/58's would be fine for the level you are at. Been playing in bands for years (trumpet) and its gonna be the PA that will probably be the biggest factor here at this stage unless you got money to burn and want then best kit. When you start doing gigs where a decent external PA company do the setup then you can look at the next level up in quality but then they would supply that for you anyway.

    Id go to you local music shop and get the basic setup and see where the band goes. Seen a lot of musicians with "all the gear" but you cant buy talent and for some that's whats been limiting factor

    I record through a 100 quid AKG mic with and a friend of mine bought a really expensive 600 pound mic which had rave reviews in the Internet. I couldn't tell the difference and far more important was singing technique, the amplifier and the mix. In the end I prefer my own recordings because I could tweak to get the sound I wanted.

    Although you will find you will spend most of your time looking at the rear view during gigs

    Some would say we're well on the way. Two big tits on guitars, one on bass and one on keys.

    e935 + stand and cable cheaper than an e935 on its own, or a beta 58, and it meant The Wife (tm) doesn't buy me clothes for my birthday!

    Default Need new mic

    I am also looking new mic because my old mic is getting old now. I went through this post and browsed a bit and I am thinking about buying Shure SM58 because it is in budget and as said voice is what important not the mic.
