Best combi mic and preamp for ufx+?


Basically i am setting up a studio for professional recording. I will mainly be recording vocals. then violin, harmonium, tabla, dholak and dhol and bansuri (indian flute.

I have a RME UFX+, mac laptop, logic pro x with kontakt library Korg pa4x arranger keyboard and kronos workstation.

Now i want to buy a mic and preamp. I know ufx has a preamp so i am confused of whether to buy just a good mic or a preamp with it. I have considered U87ai with avalon 737sp as i have heard its a good combi.

i feel i have a couple of choices...

1. Buy a high end mic and use ufx preamp.
2. Buy a good preamp and not so good mic.

I have a good budget where if i wanted i could buy the u87ai and avalon 737. is this a good buy that woll wprk gppd with the ufx? do i need a external preamp?
