Im owner of an sm58 (well, itÃ‚Â´s my only mic) and itÃ‚Â´s great, even trough the crappys IMPÃ‚Â´s.
but... imo, the 58 its a live performance mic.

number two: once possible id like to get some nice preamp. i guess i can do for the moment with my fast track pro, but i will need to get to something better if im thinking of getting serious. i'd love to get a rnp, but its simply impossible: the thing is im in argentina, and prices are trippled here, so i guess the most expensive piece of equipment i could get would be just a piece of junk. any ideas on the bestest possible two channel preamp in the $200 price range?
thanks to you all

The Shure website wrote:The SM58 and SM48 use different cartridges. That is to say, they have different frequency responses, different off axis responses, different handling characteristics, different transcient responses, etc.

I pulled it right off the FAQ on the Shure.com website, skippy....

No, you found it at shure.custhelp.com.
So far you haven't stated exactly what you don't like about the SM48. You've established that it has a different capsule from the SM58 and that's about all. Have you ever used an SM48? Have you A/B'd it against any other mic under controlled conditions and if so, would you care to share your impressions with us?
you contradict yourself even in your opinion (first saying that you think that the SM48 is a better sounding dynamic mic than an SM58, then say that it probably uses the same capsule and thus has a nearly identical sound)
sounds clearer and more distinct, possibly due to the lack of an output transformer.
