The upper-midrange of the SM57 either works or doesn't depending on your tone. A lot of the time it sounds just like a record.

Usually if you want a more natural and fat tone you'd get an M201. It is also more directional, so it will remove more of the crappy bedroom acoustics. I tried the PR-20 and the latter sounds good on first listen, but after a while, and especially comparing to other mics, you can hear certain frequencies in the upper midrange being dipped out due to I guess internal resonances or acoustic shadows.
