Post Should I get a Yeti? I have Cardioid mics already...

I have quite a few microphones already.
For eg, Shure SM57, 58, AKG D790, EV ND767a plus many others that I used when I was wearing DJ hat years ago.
However, all of them are Cardioid.

I use Alesis Multimix USB 6 mixer to connect two mics, one for guitar and one for vocal.
For software, Audacity and wavepad are doing fine.
It's just for my own progress tracking.

It is inconvenient setting up two mics/stands, mixer etc... so I'm thinking if it's a good idea to get a Blue Yeti or Snowball condenser mic that just records everything at once and all it needs is plugging USB cable to the computer.

Has anyone tried Blue mics here for acoustic guitar/singing?
Yamaha FGX730SC Nat, FS700S SDB, FS700S BS, Ibanez PF5ECE.

I have a Blue Baby Bottle mic which does a fine job with acoustic guitar and vocals. I don't use it much, but when I did my mic comparison tests it rated right up there with best of the mics I have. I have it set up for vocals on my home practice rig right now.
