This is an excellent, general purpose microphone at a reasonable price. I'm a classically trained vocalist, and I use the SM58s for rehearsal and "scratch" recordings. It delivers clear, true, and warm sound under all standard conditions and requires essentially no fine tuning or signal processing. I still prefer the crisp detail of a condenser microphone for formal demo recordings (my favorite is the Studio Projects C1), but it's hard to beat the simplicity and reliability of the SM58s for everyday use. Also special thanks to the bajaao team for delivering this on a priority basis. appreciate it.
