Some folks asked about my "pennies on the dollar" mic setup. Here you go: The Shure SM-57 works well because it's ubiquitous, cheap, incredibly sturdy, cheap and probably the single most "known quantity" for soundmen in the world. And it's cheap too. Also, it's the perfect shape for running this particular dodge as you can see. Start by sticking two rubber bands around the body of the mic. Lift the butt up through the afterlength of the A and D strings. Wrap one elastic out around the G string and over the butt of the mic. Wrap the other elastic around the E string and over the butt of the mic.
