I use a shure beta 57A. It was recommended as being a great "all round" mic. I paid 120 USD for it on sale. Another mic that everyone seems to agree kicks ass is the Shure SM57 - about 79 USD. I went with the beta cuz it was supposed to do vocals a bit better than the sm57, which is used mostly for amp micing.
I was thinking of the Beta 57,But I have a ART Tube pre amp
that has Phantom power supply.So I was thinking of taking
advantage of that. The Samson runs on 48v and the price is right,But I've heard mixed reviews on it.
