hello

i was just wondering what everyones opinion of micing up a guitar cabinet or combo with a shure sm 58 is and is it worth selling it going for an sm57 or something similar.

i pretty new to home recording and was just wondering if it would make a dramatic difference

cheers

try taking off the silver wind-shield that covers the capsule,
(be careful not to damage the mic capsule when it is off)

it behaves almost like an SM57 then

The difference isn't enough to warrant selling it in favour of a 57, and taking the metal grille off a 58 does make it sound a little closer to a 57, but I've achieved good results with both.

Isn't a shure SM58 only suitible for live stuff as it isn't a condenser? or am I totally wrong?
