I like the Heil PR35 for drummers. Seems to reject the drums pretty good.

EV N/D967 and plenty of EQ. The lower-mid can get quite excessive when used up close, but the flat grille means people are invited to stay right on top of the mic.
Rejection is excellent.

Another alternative is to find a mic where the bleed sounds good.

Iíve been using the new Electro-Voice ND46 on singing drummers to good effect. The head swivels to the side making for a compact mic that wonít get in the way of their drum sticks and the large diaphragm sounds great on vocals. 

The supercardioid mic has great rejection from the sides. I have not had a problem with snare drum bleed. Itís also a great guitar amp mic and general instrument mic. I take a few to every gig.

Jumping on this supercardioid bandwagon, I've used an sE Electronics V7 for drummer vocals.  Nice, tight pattern with good rejection.  It has a bit more pronounced proximity effect than an SM58 but nothing that some EQ can't tame.  And it's relatively inexpensive.

I have some of the ND408 and ND468 that are from the Telex era.
How does the ND46 compare to the old models?
Iím not sure if the old models were considered to be large diaphragm.

I usually will start with a Shure beta 56A.

One more vote for Beta 56A.  If not that, Telefunken M80SH.

I've asked my contact at sE Electronics about a "pistol-style" version of the V7, but nothing has yet developed on that.

As Michael mentioned, I also start with a Shure Beta56 as it is small and right angled it gets in tight and the super-cardioid pattern seems to work well if the nulls are facing the hats and snare.

Been back and forth with this over the years with everything from OM11 to SM57 chasing isolation.

Lately I've moved the other way and use a d:facto vocal mic on drums. Yes, it has bleed, but it sounds good so I find it a lot easier to live with as long as I don't compress that mic too much.
