Shure 57 and 58

You can also get a halfway decent one from Radio Shack for about $50

Akg c414. Or any of the Studio Projects Mics. The Studio Projects TB1. Regardless you will need a Mixer or audio interface with 48v Phantom power if you want to use a condensor mic unless the mic comes with and external power supply. There are a lot of good cheap condensors out there now. best thing to do is go out an listen to them.
