    I think you want to record vocals so I would say a good budget dynamic microphone would be AKG D5. I worked on it and really liked the performance, I'd even put it infront of the Shure line. The response was great with the particular artist I was recording.

    Even in a professional environment alot of artists/engineers back their vocals up with a dynamic microphone because it catches harmonics in a different way that condenser does. I heard really good mixes of dynamic microphones that sound like a higher end Shure. No joke it's all in the mix ... I heard neumann microphones sound like complete cow shit.

    with that said .. if he knows his program he can get good quality with a dynamic microphone but condenser is always better

    truth is the shure sm57/58 are used for vox in studios quite often...

    it ur best bet for a dynamic mic...if ur shyt dont come out hot it aint the mic...cant tell u how many times I asked dudes in studios what did u use to record with and they say a plain on sm58.great all purpose microphone thru and thru
