    I suppose you could use it, but why? The nuances will be lost.

          Whoops! Sorry about the last post.

          Yes, it will work but I would recommend an SM57/58 or something if the singer screams a lot. In my experience dynamic mics have less "handling" noise. This is at the price of better fidelity. I wouldn't record with a dynamic mic

            I've recently purchased an AT3035 for recording electric guitar and it's very good. Clean, medium gain rock, to full out high gain. Sounds great, barely have to work on the mic placement as well.

              It's not ideal. I've seen them used live before, but the singer was good (read: knew and used good mic technique) and the band was not excessively loud. Whether feedback will be a problem for you is a factor of your monitor levels, monitor quality, and rehearsal space.

              Nevertheless, I would never recommend one live. SM58's are good enough for some of the top names in the business when it comes to a live vocal mic. You can't go wrong with one. You'll have less feedback, less bleed from the instruments, and it won't break if you accidentally hurl it across the room.

                My logic does not resemble your earth logic...

                ...it's much more advanced.

                  + a freakin' million. I describe this mic as "point and shoot" for guitar cabs. Good on vocals as well in many situations with no sibilance issues. Not so hot on acoustic guitars, but workable.
