The popular AKG C1000s has a little sleeve that fits over the capsule to 
it a hypercardioid pickup pattern. I like this mic on my soprano saxophone

I'm just starting to use a little Behringer "Shark" feedback distroyer. it 
other PA-orientated features, but the feedback distroyer has a set of 12 
filters that (one by one) find feedback and pull back that frequency a bit
lock in. In in the early stages of using it but it does work and I've been
impressed with it - it only cost me 55 (UK). Behringer do a rackmount 
version too that I think has the same electronics(?).
