My current favorite has been the Shure KSM8 into the Cloudlifter and I will always have a use for that mic. It is an extraordinary dynamic mic.
What do you use it to record, primarily? Do you have a favorite preamp/chain you pair it with?
I pre-preamp it with a Cloudlifter CL-1, carefully position a Blue pop filter 1" away and go from the CL-1 right into a Presonus Quantum. The noise floor from the mic/line might as well be non-existent.
I have carpeted cement floor (ground floor) so I can get way without fancy shock mounts for the most part since this is a home project studio and I am usually the only one in the room. I do put a 16" square of stout packing foam (with "pyramids" on it) about 6" behind the business end of the mic to cut down on other stray noise, that works well without becoming cumbersom.
The great thing about the KSM8 is the extended sweet spot. I can be a couple of inches away from the pop screen when I sing and it still sounds great (well, great for being me singing...). The proximity effect is closer to an omni mic, even if you get right up on it you get nowhere near the same bass boost that you get with most cardiod dynamic mics. At about 3 inches out with the pop filter, I don't have problems with sibilence or popping my Ps. Very nice.
While I mostly use the KSM8 as a vocal mic, I would not hesitate to try it on anything and everything. I have a project studio in a condo. I am on the end so just one neighbor above and one to the side. There can be considerable freeway noise, something I am addressing little by little. I've grown accustomed to either close micing (very close) or running things direct when possible.
Other favored dynamics would be my EV PL95 which I think is a bit of a sleeper. That can be a good vocal mic too. And my (don't laugh!) Peavey 520i super cardiod dynamic, it's a large diaghragm mic with a neo magnet and a huge low end. Proximity effect makes it a dificult choice for vocals but it is fantastic for micing various instruments. It can also be had for very reasonable prices considering the quality so it is truly one of the great sleeper mics.
And now I have a MDC and ribbon mic to play with, fun!!!!
Edited to add - I also have a Shure Beta 87a, a friend knocked it over onto cement and is getting it fixed, it died. I found an Azden SGM 1x shotgun mic at a thrift store for $14, it uses a AAA battery and is fully functional with the wind screen. Haven't used it enough to say much about it. Last but not least, an omni Audio Technica condenser mic that was design as a table mount for conference rooms. I've lost the model number but when I looked it up it cost a couple hundred. Ebay score, the seller was remodeling a conference room and had a few of these he was selling as salvage - $16 delivered. It is a nice guitar mic but picks up EVERYTHING so it has to be close or there will be background noise.
That is pretty much my mic locker. I have a couple of dynamics I use live, they might be good drum mics but I don't get loud here.
