The Sennheiser MD-441 is in fact one of the best dynamic microphones
ever designed. It lists for $895.00, but you can often find it for about
$680. Of course you could buy 6 to 8 SM-58s for that price -- or an
entire portable PA system.
There are dozens of popular models that are good for a clarinet, but
the fact remains that 58s (and their equivalents) outsell everything
else 20 to 1. What you plug the mic into matters more than which
particular mic you use.
