I was wondering if anyone uses a dynamic microphone to record their vocals in their studio?

Ya, we just used one tonight. The vocalist was a man in his 50's who has always done stage performance. He could work a 58 like puddy. No sense at all in trying a LD condenser with him. It would have totally ruined the performance.

The only quality mic I own is an SM58 - I do all my vocals with it. I also used it to mic my acoustic tho it wasnt great results, tho no bad.

For my vocals, its all I use and I am very pleased with it.

Canny go wrong with a Shure for my needs anyway.

I use an SM57 for vocals. And acoustic guitar. And electric guitars. And to hold the door open sometimes.

I use a 58 stacked right over top of a Neumann U-87.... then blend the two together. A large diaphram and a 58 sound really nice together.

good idea...never thought of combining two like that...

I'm looking to get a dry sound and am still waiting to move to my new place where I can install some studio foam. So until then, I was going to pick up a dynamic mic because I've used them before for vocals, and they gave that dry sound I'm now looking for. Problem is, that was a while ago and no longer have one. So I was looking into a new one. The condensor mic I have picks up every sound reflection possible, so until I can install some foam, I need to maybe use a dynamic. Suggestions?
