An AT PRO35 “condensor” should smoke the sound quality of the Shure dynamic mic.
Live or studio.

Dan…

I have used both, as a player, as a live sound engineer and as a recordist producing CD’s from live performance. As stated above, I also have the option to choose from a host of other mics. In my personal mic locker I have well over 100 different mics. I will use whatever makes the most sense GIVEN THE CONTEXT. But the bottom line is this:

It’s not the hammer, it’s the carpenter.

The OP has access to Shure dynamics and has been advised that they can work and how to do it. He does not have the Pro-35. That’s the context. Should he gain access to more mics in future he’ll know where to look and what to try. For now, let’s just say that a 57 or 58 will be fine.
