Ash.  Try a Blue (the brand name) "Snowball."  I've used them, and they're a simple USB condenser that does a fantastic job.  For vocals, if you don't have a sound-booth, they're great.

I'll check it out. :)

I second that. I've used the snowball mic for voiceovers and such for my short films and videos and it works perfectly

If you're willing to fork out some cash, apparently Shure sm57's have fantastic quality, and get used in professional recording. they cost $250-$600 though.

I had a simple Panasonic microphone, but I mic swung too hard and now it's broken. I've been looking for a new one ever since, but I don't want to get rid of it since it's the first microphone I ever had :/

That's a negative.  Shure 57s, 58s and 58 Betas suck for recording.  They're good dynamic mics, but don't work nearly as well as even the cheapest condenser mics for vocals.

Hey Ashy... this is a GREAT place T9 take the advice of Joe... he's a phenomenal musician & REALLY knows his stuff.  I can't begin to name off all the instruments we currently have in the house... we're getting ready to record a jazz album & I'm using a snowball... not only are they fantastic mics, they're also super cute & tiny.  Not to mention fairly inexpensive.
Because that's the way I tuck and roll...

QFT.

Plus, the SM 57s used to be around $100... if I remember correctly.  Been awhile though.

Vocals.

And by vocals I mean screams, inhales, exhales, squeals, etc.

All day, every day.

I play saxophone, keyboard, clarinet, and at the moment I'm learning guitar and drums. I used to be in a band as the keyboard player and we managed to record three songs before our drummer moved. Music careers are pretty hard to get but heck might as well go for it..
