Im thinking about buying the Shure SM58 Mic, a lot of people say it is a
great live microphone for the price. but i would also like a mic that is
good at recording and they say that its not that good. if you have used this mic would you tell me your opinion. im also getting a condenser mic for my martin what do you think would be the best for that.

You getting best condencer microphone? Try SENNHEISER MKH800 P48... around 3200 - 3800 euros... xD

Ive worked with Shure microphones and its quality in recording is acceptable in my opinion. I do not have experience of that model, but anyway...

Well, my friend have AKG C2000B/H85 condencer mic and he likes it very much, Ive tried record acoustic guitars with it and works like a charm. Its around 160 euros...

These consender microphones are bit matter of taste, that how accurate or "wide frequency response" you like and how is your recording place like, studio or regular room, some of those mics are so accurate that they takes humming from refrigerator lol...

hope this helps...

I am inclined to agree with Emp - it's often the case that in professional scenarios Shure is the choice for live performance and AKG for studio recording.

Either Sennheiser or Behringer are probably your best choices for both applications. I use Behringer for live and studio and have no complaints.

It all depends on how much you are willing to spend on a microphone. Like what was said before, any AKG is great for recording, but if you want a cheap dynamic recording mic, get a SM57. My friend has an AKG 414 and said it was the best 400 he spent, and i'd definately agree. The sound he gets from it is just so crisp, and the setting on it for omnidirectional, cardioid and hypercardioid are extremely useful along with the adjustment of sensitivity.

Plus with condensers theres an issue of phantom power, but i take it you know that?

Well, I think Phippie knows this much better, but I think that those Condencer microphones need an "extra" power that Phantom Power gives. Those are usually 48 volts.

I think issue that jcb talks is that some condencer mics have batteries and those batteries should be removed when phantom power is used.

Phantom power is the means of supplying condenser mics with power via XLR cables or what ever cable your using, as they need that little extra "juice". EMP those batteries are if the phantom power fails so it switches to that internal supply.
