    Does anyone have experience with this microphone by Pyle?

    Pyle-Pro Professional Moving Coil Dynamic Cardioid Unidirectional Vocal Handheld Microphone Includes 15ft XLR Audio Cable to 1/4'' Audio Connection (PDMIC78) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005BSOVRY/?tag=squiertalk-20

    From what I've read in the reviews it seems good for the money. The big difference is it doesn't have the transformer like the SM57 does but otherwise performs the same. For $14 verses $98 I am very VERY tempted to take a chance on it.

    It's not rocket science. I say go for it.

    I got this GLS AUDIO ES-57 for $35 and it's perfect.

    That's the one. And since I'm cheap, I built myself a stand with a reclaimed broom handle section. :eek:

    Monoprice also makes a 57 style microphone for around 20-25 bucks.
