Default Mic for a hihat

What would be the best choices for a good overall (studio/live/rehearsals) hihat microphone? Something between 100-200 euros (or dollars) would be ideal. I was thinking about AKG Perception 170 but decided to ask your opinions first before buying anything.

Those little Crown CM700's are great for hi hats too.

I use these: http://www.amazon.com/Samson-Stereo-.../dp/B0002D0KBE

They work great for me as overheads as well as general live/rehearsal mics.

Here's a quick test I did with them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUpNNlE93ik

Oktavia 012 if you want an open, airy sound, or an SM57 for a tighter, more present sound...
