AW: microphone

The funny thing is, while the SM58 is your run-of-the mill stage vocal
microphone (which might be used on other things as well in times of need),
the SM57 still seems to be one of the standard choices for guitar amps and
snare drums, and in this realm is also found in recording studios next to
the Brauners and Neumanns.

There are a few things you might try for fun with SM57s, like miking an
entire drum kit with four of them. You get a very punchy sound which saves
you the compressor, the EQ and even works well on small playback systems
without proper low-end reproduction.

        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 
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.
