That's what I thought, but when I introduced the
topic to a music store owner and sound engineer I know, he said the good ol'
SM57s still sell better and are more popular. He didn't particular like the
newer Beta models. The old Sures are just work horses. For me it's either an
SM57/58, or jump to a $400+ microphone.

of the SM57, though...there's only a $50-$60 difference on average.
Each probably has its strengths depending on the application. I'd

I would have
it on stage either handheld for vocals or on a stand
and acoustic instruments etc.
I guess good anti-feedback properties
and quite high
sensitivity/directional properties would be good for
