We [fingerpintaudio] offer a loaner service if that helps [for the sE 2200 and any sE mic]. Also a new 2200 debuted at AES 2017, that's a bit different in a good way.

*Good luck on your search!
I agree with the SM-7, M88 and sE V7 tips. Screaming "screams" dynamic mics. Sorry about that bad pun, couldn't resist!

@ Killerkiwiattak : you might want to consider two mics since screaming is a bit too specific. Not a bad idea to have one good dynamic mic and one good condenser mic around.
