you should check out Shure microphones.
They make really good microphones.
you might want to go with a condenser type mic.
the condenser type mics need phantom power
(48 V power supply from mixer or amp)
if you are looking to pick up sound from far away,
then you will want to get a shot gun mic.
(these are used in movies and are also a condenser type microphone)
I'm in a band and we deal with mics a lot,
especially with recording and eq.
