Well thats not how it works. You match a mic to the vocalist or the source. So a 'part' (characteristic) of a mic that you don't like on a particular source will work better on a different source. And certainly there have been shoot outs in studios where cheaper mics have won out over more expensive premium options. And to be honest the 87 is rarely the best on any one source but is more of a utility mic.
