    Shure SM-57 is the standard.

    I frequently use a Shure sm-57 but also like the Telefunken m81 and will sometimes use both, the Shure right up in the speaker's grill and the Telefunken a couple of inches away to add a bit of "depth" to the sound.

    You're just starting out right?

    You could start out by using an amp that has the interface built in like a Boss Katana instead of getting into DAW's and DI's. At that point you could skip the mic and do cabinet emulation.

    You need an audio interface.
