I would recomend the Sure “sm58 a beta’ which has a little bit more top end and pressence than the standard sm58. It is much sweeter on the top end and has a much stronger output level.. It is totally worth the extra few bucks.

It depends on your voice sound, some prefers Sm58, some BETA, I like for my voice EV ND257 and Shure Beta Green 5.1. In general from my experience:

: - for strong rock vocals better buy dynamic than condenser, for light voices – condensers

- Sennheisers are more sensitive but Shures are more feedback resistant

- for lower sounding vocals try AKG D3700, Electrovoice

- Beta is more crispy than SM58, but both are very fall and shock resistant on scene, but beware of fake chinese Shures

- condensers on stage – find super or hiper cardioid – less problems with wedge monitors

This is about right… Depends on the singer, but I prefer a Beta58 or Senn e835 (my go to) for strong male vocals… for female vocals, I prefer the Beta 87. More expensive, but much more sensitive since a lot of the vocalists I work with don’t like to get on the mic like they need to…
