I am looking for a good microphone to record my flute playing while keeping the flute sound in tact. any suggestions?

I have recorded and my best recordings were with the studio mic above me rather than in front of me because my movement did not fluctuate as much. That is just my experience and I am a novice at flute recording.

I believe I may have addressed this in a previous post, but I get the best results from a pair of Rode NT5 small diaphragm condenser mics in X/Y stereo. When I'm feeling too lazy to pull those out of my mic cabinet and set them up (most of the time!), I'll use the Rode NT1a large diaphragm condenser that's always on my mic stand. When I'm recording something for an album, I use a Mojave MA300 tube condenser AND the Rode NT5's and blend the two sources in the mix.
