Make sure you get the physicists scopes that measure current going in the opposite direction.
But seriously, you can't got wrong with Tek scopes they are everywhere, a good interface to learn, but not cheap. As far as analyzers, really depends on your needs and once again budget...

Just find your local sales reps, they'll gladly loan you some.
