Buying a microphone

A young lady called Fiona who is new to singing with backing tracks contacted me and asked me what microphone she should buy :

Hi Kenny,
Sorry for bothering you, but I was wondering
if you would be able to point me in the right
direction for me getting my own microphone
or if you no of any good websites or shops
that i should go to. I’d appreciate your help.

Hi Fiona

There are hundreds of microphones on the market today but the industry standard and best all-round mic (for quality of live vocal reproduction, durability & price) is the Shure SM58.

The SM58 retails at around £89 and any local music shop will stock them.

However, usually the best prices you’ll find are online so do a search – Google is your best friend with this…
