About the same as most "what's the best vocal mic" threads, then.
The original question is so pointless, as are many of the simple "x is the best" answers.
But a lot of the other discussion is more meaningful.

:headbang: I've lost count of the number of singers I've come across who still do this. It's one thing with the kids doing school shows.
Fact: while you think it makes you look like a superstar, it actually makes you sound way worse than you actually are (unless you actually want to sound like a nasal distorted mess, and makes feedback more likely.
So, a contextual and valuable answer to the original poster's request could be "the mic you're currently using, but use it properly" - he'll sound better and get less feedback, without spending any money.
