Cheap is always nice although I don't wanna sacrifice the sound. I would love for the records to leave from my room straight to mastering... So I'll spend where I need to.
How can you sacrifice the sound with a standard. The 57 is the "go to" mic in snare, here and everywhere. For a long time the SM57 was part of the snare sound (and that's for thousands of records). So, how can you go wrong with a standard?
That said, my favorite snare mic now is the Beyer 201.
