I need a good mic for vocals...
I heard of SM 58....

price?
....so little time.
#2

#3
All purpose....
to be used on gigs..
budgets not a problem
....so little time.

for all purpose i would go with the Shure SM57. but the 58 would be a pretty good choice too.
i think the 57 is like 100 bucks US.

57 is totally an instrument mic... never EVER heard of it being used for vocals.... actually, thats not true, the only time I saw it being used for vocals, was when this guy was using synth and different effects on his vocals.

Shure 58's are the standard, but try out some of the Audio Technica vocal mic's, they are a little more forgiving.

57 can be good for female vocals, but the sm58 is the industry standard "live" mic. its almost indestructable and sounds good enough.

also, look at the shure beta58. its very like an sm58, but with a different frequency response, which suits some people better.

how do those marshall handles compare tonewise to, say, mesa handles?

All Peavey microphones are good. I have one that I bought new for £30 ($60) and that can manage gigs and all.

Explain it like this:
This is a professional grade microphone, what the pro uses. The thing is that it's almost the same price as most microphones and if I get this, I will never need to upgrade! It's hte best vocal mic there is.
