    I have an acoustic guitar and a voice and I'd like to record them. I'm a poor student so I can't afford much. I need to know what type of mics I should be looking for. I already have a nice sound card with a mic input and preamp. I just need mics. What's the cheapest option I could get away with so that the recording doesn't sound like crap?

    The Shure SM57 would be a very good choice for you.
