I suspect that your Pulsar will do just fine within the budget you
asked for. You should probably experiment more with placements and
mixing techniques. Is that room really something you want to share with
the rest of the world or will a good reverb (say IR) do the trick? If
your room is important, then just keep a longer distance from the
instruments, but that mic will not hear what you hear anyway.

You will probably not want to hear that because both the guitar's and
the bass' low frequencies will interact and muddy your recording when
they are mixed together from the recording.
Why not use that money and buy one of the small Mackie VLZ3 mixers
(possible the 802)? They have wonderful preamps and when you get more
money, then you can buy even better mics. :-)
That said, if your target is is to mimic you ears, that you will
probably not find anything better then the Zoom H2 in this price class -
or wait a little bit longer, then you can afford H4.
