    Sennheiser 421 is a classic for this.

    Royer R-121 is also great, but is expensive and relatively fragile.

    I'll second the Sennheiser rec. Something about their top end seems to mesh with brass and winds well. The 421 is a classic, but if you can demo stuff, don't be shy: grab a 421, 431, 906, and 935 and see what happens.

    I'd try and find a used Sennheiser e906 or look into an Audix i5, which is another fine utility mic - it may not shine in a single instance, but it will prove very acceptable across a broad range of uses.
