Which best mic option to match my voice timbre/range??

Confused on which mic would best fit my voice. A 47, 67, 87, C12 type? Don't have time to audition all of these mic flavors, but I've been doing a lot of research. Including Warren's Clipolator at Zen Pro. My question is - does my vocal range, nasally resonance, gravitate toward a certain mic type to keep the sibilance and harshness to a minimum. Really interested in matching up with a mic that has a smooth top and no sibilance. (< $1500)

A Pearllman TM-1, Telefunken Copperhead, Blackspade UM17R are a few mics that I'm looking at.

An example of my voice is below. SM7B (heavy vocals), Mojave 301 ("normal" vocals). Should give an idea of my vocal type/problem frequencies.

This one - using a CM-6 but squashed it too much with a Anamod 660 going in.

Thanks for your time!

**edit** - Would a 47 be too dark?
