Interesting to see so many suggestions for SM57 which is something of an oddball in terms of frequency response (super uneven in the high frequencies).
I guess there must be a good reason why it’s used so widely, however I thought that recording instruments (especially quiet sounds) is better with more sensitive – and more linear mikes.
