I use a Radio Shack 33-3013 Tie-clip/peanut/electret mic.  It has a clean response and is so tiny that you can completely enclose it in your hand where it is completely responsive to cupping effects.  The 1/8” cable exits your cup between your fingers. It uses a button battery that lasts for many hours IF you remember to turn it off. It needs some adapters to go from 1/8” plug to 1/4” plug or XLR.  I understand that Radio Shack may have discontinued it but it is available on ebay for as little as $10.

I suggest that you try it.  I think that you will like it.  If you don’t, you have most of your budget still available for a more traditional mic.
