Rhode NT1000 does a good job on vocals/acoustics and drum overheads. good price also... definitely worth a look.

I'm with Gaukdawg - Sennheiser e835. I've got three of them, and insist that our lead singer use one.

The Audix mikes sound great until you are singing with someone who has a beta 58 or a 57 then you hear the difference its called clarity ...

If you are truly serious about vocal reproduction in a mic, you'll gravitate to a Neumann KMS 105. Yeah, it's expensive. But, you'll never regret it.

"What is difference b/t Shure SM 58 and Beta 58 ?????"

The Beta 58 has more low-midrange pickup, has a pronounced bass drop off as you move the mic away from you mouth and is supercardioid (the 58 is cardioid)

Beta 58

Shure SM57. I know it's supposed to be an instrument mike but I find it picks up less ancillary sound than a SM58 which is also very nice.

No, that's random order. I think my favorite is the KSM 9, but I've only used one and don't own one, so I use the Audix OM-6 most of all. There's a lot of good mics out there these days. The best thing to do is to try as manny as you can until you hear one that sounds "right" with your voice. I wish there was an easier way.
