Apples and oranges.  The 2020 (budget studio condenser) has a totally different application from the SM58's (mainly live vocals, general all-rounder, smash it into a punk singer's forehead and it still sounds fine).  The thing about the SM58 is that it is the standard, for better or worse, and that makes some things easier when you're working with different people, because everyone from vocalist to sound tech is familiar with how to use it effectively.
The SM57 is one of the best bang-for-buck microphones - it's used in top studios with unlimited funds, and on every stage in the world.   Maybe not ideal for all applications, but it's tough to beat for miking a snare drum or guitar amp.

True enough, I just had one on hand when I started doing stuff that involved mic's.

Are we speaking from experience here?
 
(and were you the smasher, or the smashee?

Usually with punk singers the smasher is also the smashee.

  I'm generally the guy who (tries not to) hits mics with drumsticks, not foreheads.

My Saturday is a bit fuzzy. How about let's say 7:30pm on Sunday?
 
The LCD2? I know Jim (aqsw) has one. I think Zach (ckaz) used to have one but sold it. I'm fairly familiar with the LCD2 myself, having heard it several times and I had one on loan for a while.

I sent out a small PM to a couple people. If you didn't get one but would like to attend, drop me a pm.

Hey Bear, this was sort of a last minute thing so I wasn't expecting you to make the long drive out (it's what... 2 hours both ways?). I think I'll put together a bigger meet in a couple months.

Ok, I'll keep my eyes open for it.

Hey for anyone interested, I've got a chocolate/dessert potluck happening tomorrow around 8pm. Bring fruit for dipping, or other desserts, or drinks. Location is in Lindenwoods.
