Thanks Zachary, I’ve heard so much love for the SM57 that it’s definitely something I’m going to buy, very likely a pair as you suggest. I’ll have enough budget to buy those and potentially another option, but I reckon that’s where I’ll start. I’ll get a couple brand new I think, got to be worth the investment. Thanks for the advice everyone 👍😁
Oh that’s good to know, I’d much rather not spend $4000 anyway 😄
I have an Audio Technica ATR25 stereo shotgun mic that I’ve used lots for field recordings loads and it’s not bad actually. That’s probably what I’ll be using until I can get something better I reckon.
I have a Korg Sound on Sound for field recordings too but sadly that is limited to 16bit 44.1khz so it’s not ideal
Thanks for jogging my memory that the SM58 is just a 57 with a grill on. The missus has one of those so I’ll have to nick it off her and see how long it takes her to notice 😁

Hey thanks for the replay electronic_tiger, sorry for the delay getting back to you
Thanks for the suggestion, I’ll certainly look into the Shure you mentioned
The more I think about it though the more I’m thinking about getting a matched pair which narrows my options down a bit. At the moment I’ve got my heart set on a pair of sE Electronics mics, either the SE&’s or SE8’s depending on what budget I have when the time rolls round. I have a mate that owns a studio nearby so I asked his advice too and he loves his SE8’s apparently
