I have two Heil PR40s on booms. Can't go wrong with the darned things, they're bulletproof and flat as a board, and will take a lot of sound pressure without distortion (very good for very "close talking," which allows minimum mike gain and zero background noise pickup).

I've tried a lot of stuff, though. No external EQ systems or anything, just use the mikes straight into the rigs. They seem to sound good on everything.
But, like many studio mikes, they're fairly large and heavy. Wouldn't want to have to hand-hold one, wouldn't want to use one on a desk stand.
