You should start with dynamic mics if you’re looking for something reliable and versatile. These mics reliably capture sound thanks to their moving coil magnetic diaphragm and can do so even at high sound pressure. You can use them as such to mirror loud sound sources such as bass and guitar amplifiers, and even drum kits without worrying about unwanted distortion or damage. Lastly, they are not only for applications with high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) because they work well in quieter settings.
