I recently joined a blues band, and I was just wondering if anybody has any recommended mics. Most saxophonists that play live use the ones with clips, but I just dont know what model's of mics people recommend. Any help is appreciated

Shure SM 57. About $90 new and can take a lot of abuse (physically and sonically). Keep it in the pouch that it comes in and throw it in your gig bag, you'll never have any problems.

You can find them a little cheaper than that. It's not a clip on obviously, but it's probably the most popular live mic around (and it's brother the SM 58 for vocals).

I keep a 57 in my case, just in case:)

I use an SM58 for vocals, and sax live. Usually on a boom stand. Usually the wireless, but when that is not an option, the one mic does double duty.
