Short summary: you want an Audix Fireball V.  

As an alternative, if you've been cupping the 545SD in your hands, you might want to put it on a stand and play in front of it instead.  Cupping it in your hands is certain to drive the mic element hard, which is what produces the Chicago sound. That said, the Fireball will produce beautiful clean tones whether you cup it in your hands or not.
