Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi I'm looking for a suitable high voltage prob for my research project. I'm in contact with voltages that can have transient spikes as high as 3.0kV but my DVM only measures up to 1kV and 97% of the time im under this range. I bought this and it was perfect the only problem is that it has a range on 1kV to 40kV. Does anybody have a solution or know of any sub $100 probes that can measure from 0V to (3kV - 10kv). Or does anybody know a DMM that can reach 1.5kV w/ data logging capabilities?

Can you just use a high-voltage probe with a standard logging DMM? This probe is listed at $65 or so...
