Alright UG. I'm sorry to say that I know nothing about microphones and I'm looking to buy an all-purpose one (for vocals, amps, whatever). Please explain to me a little bit about how they work, what kinds are better (dynamic, condenser, ?), and some good brands. Thanks in advance.

Shure SM57

as for mic types this link should suffice

Or SM58's are good aswell. They can both be used to mic up drums too if you're interested.

for amps, if you want a new age, dream theater sounding tone, take a shure sm57, stick it right on the grill of the cab on the sweet spot of the speaker...and press record. for a more old school, gnr sounding tone, get a good condensor and put it like a foot away or any distance for that matter from the amp, and it should be a creamier, smoother tone.
