Industry standard, but not for 2020
Edgar Blackdagger 16.04.2020
It is what it is, you stumble upon it everywhere and it used to be convenient for any occasion, but it's not the 80s anymore, it's got medium output, not great side and back rejection and bad off-axis colorartion (now I understand why everyone else has hi-hat issues) and its frequency responce is full of peaks and drops.
For me nowadays it should be considered as just a character mic if you want the sound of the '80s and '90s, nothing bad with that, but it's not that miraculous mic you hear about, at least not for today's standards.

For guitar cabs I prefer ribbon mics (SE electronics, even some T-bones occasionally) and for drums I went all Albini and the skies opened, now I use Oktava MK-12 mics on snare, toms and sometimes room, and the only dynamic mic I find useable is the Sontronics Solo, way quieter and cleaner bleed and a way more hi-fi mic.
Also for snare I've done some shootouts with an Audix i-5 and it was awesome, but I haven't tested what it does with a hi-hat behind it.

For blues harmonica: too expensive for no obvious benefit
10HoleBlow 13.02.2020
I don't know why amplified blues harmonica players are interested in the microphone. It is heavy, not easy to hold and cup, and the rotating head with this horrible flexible ring is extremely annoying when it is inside your palm. The sound for blues harmonica is not interesting and inferior to the classic vintage Shure or Astatic elements.
