Im sorry if this isnt the place to post this, im new to forums and couldnt find the right place but here goes...

Industry standard is the good 'ole Shure SM57. i used them on my band recordings and they sound okay, if a little fizzy and nasly.

A mate said to use an SM58 vocal mic cause they have a bigger diaphram so theres more bass frequencies. (which will in theory get rid of the nasly/trebly sound)

Has anyone tried this and is it any good?

they are the industry standard for live vocals, are you asking about using it for vocals or guitar?
for guitar, the SM57 is easily the best, yours was probably just positioned badly before.
if you're asking about it for vocals, they are great live, but there are better (beta 87 is a good one)
and if you mean for recording vocals, get a condenser mic

No im on about amp micing

I'm starting to mess with that right now. Bought a shure 57a beta (used) and a new 58 yesterday. Gonna get this Vj giggable if it kills me.

You use condensors live? Bit risky.

Generally I'd say no to using a 58 for amps. It's probably just an issue of mic placement.

Also, if you look at the frequency response graph for the 58 you'll notice it dips quite largely at low frequencies. So it wouldn't have a tighter low end than the 57.

They sound so great, and they're less dependent on their location or angle than a SM57.
A lot easier to get a good sound out of
