Versatile mic that works with Audient ID preamps

Hi folks!

I just bought a Audient ID14 for my little home studio and now im searching about a good (and not too expensive) that work Wells with the preamps of the interface (i mean dont need a fancy preamp to dont sound shrill for example) and versatile (vocals, acoustic guitar and guitar cabs mainly). Currently have a sm57 and a pair oficina cheap chinese ribbons (need a ribbon replacement)

What would you choose? Around 300 euros (max) new or used.

Thanxs!

Mic choice is very personnel and dependent on the room you will be recording it in and the sound source it will be capturing. It depends on many variables and what sounds good for one person in one room may not sound good for that same person in another room.

For the things you listed, you already have a versatile mic that can record professional quality vocals and guitars, The SM57. This mic has captures some of the best vocals and guitars in hundreds of top songs.
I would use the SM57 and not spend the $300, as the SM57 can do what you already need.
