I've been using an SM7b for vocals and electric guitar for a couple years and I definitely recommend it. It does require a little extra kick, as said previously.

I've primarily been using Shure dynamic mics for my recording for years. Apart from a small budget stereo pair of condensers for drum overheads. I've been...
