I'm want to get a mic to record vocals and instruments.

I have it narrowed down between these 2

Shure PG58

and

Samson C01
http://www.axemusic.com/product.asp?numRecordPosition=1&P_ID=1708&PT_ID=164

I'll be getting it from this site, and they are both $68 cdn (about what I want to pay)

I want to know which will be the better choice.

you'll get better results in the recording forum.

and specify what instruments you'll be using it on and what kind of vocals (singing/screaming).

Pay a bit extra and just get an SM57. They work really well for vocals too. In fact a singer I worked with for many years had his favourite mic (like all good singers do) and it was an SM57. He had his choice of quite a few good mics and his trusty old SM57 was the one he always used. Many times he'd end up with an SM58 on his amp and his 57 in front of his face. Back the front I know but he was right, the 57 did sound better for his vocals and as he was just the rhythm guitarist it was more important to get his vocals right than his guitar, not that the SM58 did a bad job on the amp.

I demo with an SM58 on the Vadis sometimes. Sounds pretty good, too. Mainly because I'm too lazy to dig out the SM57 if I've already done an acoustic scratch...
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.

I would also look at the Audix i5. Better than the Sure SM57 IMO. Same price. http://www.audixusa.com/docs/products/i5.shtml works for vocals well too.

I've heard good things about those Audixes as stage mics. I will be in the market for some mics soon because I have lost two Shures, both an SM57 and an SM58, and a Crown condenser (probably all stolen). I'll have to keep those Audixes in mind. Thanks for reminding me about them.
