If you are looking for a vintage-sounding microphone and preamplifier chain, check out the Vintage-Style Microphone and Preamp Kit from B&H. It includes a Telefunken CU-29 Copperhead tube microphone with NOS (new old stock) Telefunken tube, a Black Lion Audio B173 preamplifier, and a 10-foot XLR cable.
The CU-29 tube microphone has a cardioid polar pattern and is built around a single-membrane version of their TK-67 capsule, also found in their AK-47 microphone. It is designed as a multipurpose mic, and can be used on vocals, bass, electric and acoustic guitars, piano, and more.
Based on the famous Neve 1073, the Black Lion Audio B173 preamplifier boasts a discrete Class-A-circuit design and features independent microphone input and output gain controls, allowing you to drive the input without overloading your output signal. The B173 also features a 1/4" high-impedance input, allowing it to be used as a DI. The CU-29 Copperhead can be connected to the B173 with the included XLR cable.
The CU-29 Copperhead Tube Condenser Microphone from Telefunken is a part of their R-F-T line of coveted tube condenser microphones, and is a viable option for crucial recording of vocals and instruments. The CU-29 features a single-membrane version of the large diaphragm capsule used in the AR-51 and AK-47 Mk II microphones. The capsule reproduces audio with presence and detail. The Telefunken EF-95 vacuum tube output stage adds warmth and a wide frequency response. The microphone's cardioid polar pattern controls off-axis feedback and noise.

Hi-fidelity microphone with a "present" but not "harsh" character, with clarity and detail, but entirely devoid of the "bite" usually found in microphones in this price range
The R-F-T line of tube condenser microphones utilizes American designed electronics in conjunction with New Old Stock tubes and standardized parts from overseas manufacturers
Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 15' (4.6 m), Black
The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (15') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.
Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.
95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity

Black Lion Audio B173 Single-Channel Microphone Preamplifier
The Black Lion Audio B173 Single-Channel Microphone Preamplifier is a 1RU 1/2-rack chassis preamplifier designed for studio recording. The unit is based on the classic Neve 1073, utilizing a discrete Class A, single-ended style microphone amp and a discrete balanced output amplifier.
For I/O, it features an XLR-3F microphone input as well as a 1/4" high-impedance buffer DI input for connecting instruments such as guitars and keyboards. The output is supplied via a 1/4" back plate connector.
For controls, the unit features a microphone gain knob in 12 steps from +12 to +80 dB of gain, and output gain control, selectable +48V phantom power for utilizing condenser microphones, a power switch, and a switch for routing either the XLR or DI input to the output transformer. Due to the circuit design of the preamp, it will require approximately two to three minutes of warm up time for distortion to settle throughout the signal path.
