Recommend an MC alternative to Clearaudio Maestro

I currently have the Clearaudio Maestro Wood cart (V1) on a Clearaudio Satisfy Tonearm. I've always used MM carts and I'd like to finally give MC a shot. Are there any good MC carts at at ~$1000 (or less) that would give a good MC vs. MM comparison with the Maestro cart ? Ideally I'd like to try something relatively inexpensive to start, but my concern is that comparing the Maestro to a cheap MC will be like comparing apples to oranges. Any thoughts?
