I've got a great Shure 545s (rehabbed by the brilliant Greg Heumann at Blows Me Away), driving through a newish Fender Blues Junior. As you might guess, at larger venues, the sound guy mics the amp through the PA to provide volume and balance.
At other venues, I've had to mic the Junior myself. I've been using an older vocal mic - not sure if this is the best choice.
Any suggestions on the best mic to amplify my Blues Junior through standard PA systems?
As always, thanks for any suggestions.

Basically either a Shure SM58, Beta 58, Beta 57, or SM57, and those are the standard mics used by most professional sound guys to mic any amp for ages as well as in recording studios, plus they can take a pretty good beating too.
Adam Gussow recently posted a video where he described a mic he is currently using and likes quite a bit... I forget the model, but you will find it on his youtube page.
57's are more directional than 58's and hence make better amp mics. Of course if you choose an Ultimate 57, you can also use it to play harp through.....
