Ah, no. That's not the one I was thinking of. I think I've seen Ed Vedder singing into one of them though.
What type and size you need, and where you should point it. Does a large diaphragm do a better job in preventing pregnancy than a small? WTF is phantom power and why do you need it? All these important questions and more, discussed within. Entendre at your own risk.
As for wartime BBC Hetfield mic, you might be thinking of the Super 55. He uses them live. People regularly put SM58 capsules into the 55 to make it sound good while still looking good.
Yeah, that's the one I'm thinking of. Hetfield always had one live.
I think you're right about what he used in the studio though.

I have a "cloudlifter" which boosts the signal of the SM7. I guess I would recommend it if your preamp can't crank enough clean gain for the SM7. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/CL1Cloud
It's really not necessary though, but my SM7 came with one as a package deal. I've used it but haven't noticed much difference in audio quality between the Cloudlifter and just turning up the gain on my focusrite.
EDIT: Speaking of the Cloudlifter though, I have used it with my modded SM57 (transformer removal mod) and it really helps that mic achieve greatness.
Well today I ordered another 57. I got sick of changing the one I have between my snare and cab. And I don't record that much so I'm pretty lazy and an impulse buyer unfortunately. I got one at Sweetwater with a low profile boom me cable. I used to have a e609 until very recently but preferred the 57 so I sold it. Now here I am lol.
Love the 609 on guitar cabs.liv_rong wrote: ↑Mon May 15, 2017 7:15 pmWell today I ordered another 57. I got sick of changing the one I have between my snare and cab.

Yes indeed, no mic stand needed with the 609. I still see guys draping a 57 over the cab and it drives me nuts Lazy fucks.
Yeah it just didnt do it for me, but Im an inexperienced hack. For cleaner stuff it was fine but anything really loud and broken up or high gain just didnt sound good to me(though Im not good at recording that stuff anyways). My ES57's actually sound better all around than the e609 did.
I haven't bought a mic for about 5 years. Spent far too much on them in the early days. Won't rule it out, but no current plans to expand.
