What are U Guise...
#1
Using for recording?

I want to purchase a new microphone - easy thing is just to get another SM57 but want to look at other options.

Have a couple of mic preamps and a Presonus Firebox. Also a SM57 and cheap ass mic stand.

I now have a Stereo setup so need to capture 2 sources. Ideas?

I use an Sm57, or an audio technica at2035, into a focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and reaper as my DAW.

Rodes are reasonably good and affordable.
AKG has the C214 which is studio grade but also affordable within reason.

Everyone should be armed ...until nobody has guns.

General use - Mainly miking cabs. Seems like the 57 is the way to go.

Right now cheaper is better, but not penny wise/pound foolish.

+1. SM57s are great for guitars.

If you just want more guitar mics but different flavour than the SM57, check out the Sennheiser MD421 and e609/e906

e609s are good for cabs also, more for rhythm. They're a bit scooped in the mids, but you can control their frequency response by changing the distance from the cab.

There is a great mic on sale at MF, the TSM411. It sounds like a SM57 with a wider range and more pronounced midrange. They go for $89 but MF has them on sales for $29. I bought one and went back today to buy a second one. I haven't recorded with it yet but it sounds great live.
