There are two good Hi-Z mics that come to mind.  Both are, (were), mfg
by Shure.  The 55S and the 737A.

Both have a response from about 100cps to 10Kc.

I know that most folks seem to no longer consider them, BUT, Mike M.,
*WN3B* (not W3NB), has won the Heavy Metal Rally several times with his 
Gates TX and
his 55S.

Mike also has the lows.  I do to, but to a lesser extent, and use a 737A.
