Heh, not to sound like an ass, but for vocals, really warm/bright vocals, the EV 635a sounds great. I got one that cost me $35. I got two used, and I'm glad. The damn mic holders cost more at Ametron.
I'd like to say something passionate like I'd buy 2 more of them before sm57's but honestly, I'd rather buy two salt shakers or just save the money. Money really doesn't always = target. I've learned the hard way.
My quick opinion:
EV 635a for vox
RCA BK-5 for guitar (f'n killer, soaks up clipping like a sponge)
if you want an awesome fet condenser for around $1000, get a Sony c37p if you can find one. They sound great on snare. I haven't tried it on guitar cab or my vox. Could be cool. Don't know.
