Use any mic you have has as the mid. I suggest a ribbon or Tube LDC to try at center first. You do not have to have a match of any kind, but I would tend not to use moving coils like a SM57. The one quality you want the same is a good room sound. MS- is mainly a room mic thing, not a close mic thing. Moving coil mic's tend not be sound as good past a few feet from the source.

If you want to use two mic's for stereo close up, better off with spaced pair or Blumlien.
