Re: Acoustic micorophones
That's kind of hard to say, as basically "the sky's the limit" with spending on microphones. Check "Recording" magazine or "Sound on Sound" magazine for some examples.
In general, though, you'll probably want a condenser microphone with a cardioid pattern. I would recommend something like the MXL 991. In fact, you can get the 991 through Musician's Friend along with an MXL 990 vocal mic for an excellent price.
Any other suggestions out there?
