Shure 57 vs. 58?

Would a 58 with the bulb part taken off sound the same as a 57 for puting in front of a mic cabinet?

I would think that the lack of the 57 plastic filter thingy would be a problem. Does the 58 sound that bad on the cab?

Not the same, but similar, and not at all bad if you're looking for a sound in that ballpark. It should be totally useable if that's all you've got.
