I'm not the vocalist but since I work for the GuitarCenter family I'm the designated "buy shit for the band" guy. The person who will actually be using this is influenced by such bands as The Word Alive, Underoath, and Dance Gavin Dance (to name a few).

Any suggestions?

microphones aren't hardcore

Neither are the bands he mentioned.

If this is for live use, anything will do.

It's not my typical style of music so I have no idea who's who in that world, I just know those are three bands he likes and he asked me for a good microphone. I know he'll also be doing screamed vocals so I figure eh why not ask here

But anything would do? You wouldn't recommend a particular brand over another?

I don't know anything about different brands, but I'm fairly positive that dynamic mics are better for harsh vocals than condensers.

Anything would do fine really.

My friend's band used dollar store mics for their harsh vocals and it sounded perfectly fine. I mean... it is supposed to be harsh.

Shure SM57


Eh with hardcore it may actually be a good choice, the result will probably be thinner than the "normal" use of a large diaphragm condenser.

I disagree. High end condensers usually have a stronger high end, make it sound "thinner" than a dynamic. Plus, I think the most common mic in hardcore would probably be the Shure SM7B, which doesn't sound that different from the 57.

No one posted a Jeromes Dream link yet?

Also, I assume if the dude is influenced by those bands, he's probably not a very good musician (no offence, but those are basic intro bands), so I'd suggest any cheaper mic. Shure sm58 is a good call, I guess. I have that one I think.
