Get yourself a Schoeps CMC64 Set Modular Small-diaphragm Condenser Microphone with Cardioid Capsule.

Good general-purpose and the cardiod capsule suppresses noise from other directions besides (mostly) right in front of the mic. What, you don’t have a spare $1700 lying around to spend on such a mic? Buddy, that’s your problem, not mine. 😉
