You really cannot go wrong with a Sure 57. I've used it on dozens of recordings (including this one with out any fancy pre-amp (just into a Firepod interface which does have one, but nothing top of the line). The S57 will only run you around $120 and with good mixing and leveling will work great. Lots of professional studios use them quite often.

But how you mic has a lot to do with it. I find placing the mic directly in front of the cone as closely as possible and then recording two tracks and panning them makes a nice "full" sound.

What interface are you using to run the mics in?
