The SM57 is the microphone most often used with guitar cabs on stage and in the studio, but this isn't its only use. It's common to see an SM57 used on snare drums, acoustic guitars, violins, and even vocals.
The SM58 is a legendary microphone that was launched in 1966. Pretty much every singer has used an SM58 at some point! The Beta 58A was launched in 1996 and takes what's great about the SM58 and expands the frequency response.
