hey,

as you may know i have no vocals on any of my songs. and im looking to write some death metal. and i definitely want some vocals recorded so basically whats the cheapest decent mic i could get away with at the moment.

cos im skint and i can part with as little money as possible so suggestions are good then ill scan ebay.

yeah but its pretty expensive its like 60 quid.

if i got a 57 for recording guitar would i be able to get decent vocal recordings with it?

this is death metal vocals you dont need a really expensive mic trust me i used to do death metal demos with a shure beta just do a little track tweaking and it is good

57's are great for vocals. You might need some kind of pop screen for it, though.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?

Yes - a 57 would work well for guitar and vocals. In fact a lot of death metal albums done by Andy Sneap utilized a Shure SM57 for the vocals.

you'll probably need a preamp too? your vocals might sound ****ty without one,
Too cool for a signature.
