You wouldn’t use a saw to pound in a nail or a hammer to make a cut. You have to use the right tool for the job. A good, high-end microphone would cost as much as all of my microphones added together. My best microphone is called Josephine. She is a fantastic microphone, perfect for playing music in front of an audience but she is not getting the job done in the studio. I think that I’m trying to force it to work because she is my most expensive microphone. When you need a hammer, use a hammer. An SM57 is the most common microphone available. Anything cheaper wouldn’t be an actual microphone. I recorded guitar, vocals, and harmonica with the same SM57. This workhorse got the job done. I’m working on the final mix for “Not as Regular.” It should be streaming soon.
