Hello guys.

I really gotta get myself a mic for my amp so I can hear myself in my in-ear monitor system cuz otherwise I hear only bass and bass drums (I hear only a little of snare) cuz the in-ear headphones cuz everything else out.

SO I was looking at amplifier microphones but I thought I might ask UG what it suggests?
I don't wanna spend more than 50€. I know I know...good mics are around 100€ but...right now I don't need good quality.

thanks UG!

Yep, the Shure SM57 is the industry standard.

nah... I'm sure you can find em cheaper than that. They run for $45-55 used in the USA, can't be THAT much more expensive over there, can it?

If that's the case, Behringer makes a few pretty decent mics that you can look for.

I wouldn't get anything cheaper TBH. An SM57 will basically last you forever if you treat it well, so it's something you will never have to replace. Anything cheaper will most likely sound like ass. I would buy one used if you don't want to pay for a new one (eBay, etc...).

^Well, Behringer makes an sm58 clone for like $30 new. It sounds surprisingly the same, and is built like a tank. In a pinch, any vocal mic would work to mic a guitar amp, as both vocals and guitar are mid-range sources.

But as has been said... The sm57 iswhat you wanna aim for.

The SM57 is the cheapest mic I would spend money on to mic an amp for a show.

If you can't afford it, save up.

Listen to MatrixClaw. I've tried a few cheaper mics and they were just pure **** as far as tone is concerned. The SM57 is an incredible bargain for what you get.

I just need it to put in on my in-ear. On shows I get the sm 57 there.

ur amp should have a line out, perhaps just using a standard guitar lead to connect it to the mixing board can save u needing to purchase a mic... for now.
