Omni mics for piano

Which small diaphragm omni mics would you suggest for classical piano recording? My price range $700, but at the moment I would prefer going lower. I would not mind getting second hand ones. So far I was looking into:

Oktava MK012 from Sound-Room
Superlux CMH8K
Akg C451 with CK2, or CK22
Akg Blueline with CK92

On the other hand, which omni capsules only can you recommend, as I could DIY preamp body myself.
