I like them both.I think the Beta's have more high end "sizzle" but a plain jane 58 sounds smoother if not "warmer" to my ears. I'd have to A/B them both again to be more accurate in my judgement.

Would you rather drop a hammer on your right toe or your left toe? It's somewhat like that difference. I'd prefer an OM3, 767a, or PL80a.
So, using your analogy, you would rather drop a CHEAP hammer on YOUR toes? I would have understood you offering an alternative if you said "Neumann KMS105", but neither Audix nor EV are as reliable and rugged as Shure for live applications.

I'd rather have a mic that's 90% reliable and sounds good than one that's 99% reliable and makes me wish I had a different mic every time I use it. And that's before taking into account how much more bleed the Shures pick up.
