Shure SM57 Cardioid Dynamic Instrument Microphone
The Shure SM57 unidirectional dynamic microphone is exceptional for musical instrument pickup or for vocals. With its bright, clean sound and carefully contoured presence rise, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. In the studio, it is excellent for recording drums, guitar, and woodwinds. For musical instruments or vocals, the SM57 is a consistent choice of professional performers. It is also the standard microphone used on the podium of the U.S. President for over 30 years. Its outstanding performance, legendary reliability, and diversity of application make this "workhorse" the choice of performers, producers, and sound engineers the world over.

The Swiss Army knife of the audio world. You can use these for anything and they last forever and sound good.
Since the early 70s, it continues being all that I anticipate of the Shure SM57, including its ruggedness!
You can't go wrong with these, they are an industry standard for a reason. Vocals, guitar, snare drums, toms, etc., they do the job and they're super-durable. A bargain, frankly.
