Default What kind of mics pair for a vibraphone ?

I'm wondering what could be a good choice for a pair of condenser
microphones, in order to record my vibraphone (not only, but mainly).
I was told that Gary Burton uses only his matched pair of U87. But I suppose
it will be hard to find a matched pair of these vintage mikes and perhaps a
little expansive (I don't play so well as this wonderful vibes player).
I thought about a pair of CMC6 Schoeps with an MK matched pair caps (OK,
it's quite expansive too...).
Which MK caps would be the more appropriate ? the standard MK4 ? or any
other one ?
My recorder is a DtD VS 2400 Roland with a DBX 386 preamp. Not wonderful,
but the only ones I own.
Thanks for your suggestions, remarks and all kind of answers.
Sorry for my poor english, I'm french...
