the right preamp...again...

Hey!

I still have to buy my go to preamps...
So...read the following, and give me some advice plz.

I tell you what I want basically:

- A preamp mainly for male pop/rock lead vocals, complementing the sound of my M147 (It works with my voice) , I can get very loud at 2 khz.
- A preamp that works with e-guitars, most of the times Mesa Boogie/Modern Rock style, (with Gibson Les Paul Custom), Clean Sounds with a Fender Twin Amp.
- A preamp/d.i. for my Music man stingray 5 bass
- A preamp for recording a Taylor 815.

As I don't want to exceed 4000 $, At least one of the pres should be flexible, and do more than one job.

Maybe:

- Brent Averill 1272 Dual

- Brent Averill 1073 Class A

- Aurora Audio GTQ2

- Crane Song Flamingo

- Chandler Limited Germanium PreAmp / DI

- Avalon M5 mono

- others?

Which one would you chose for what specific job?
And could you decsribe the sound characteristics in a few words??

Thanks for your help

Can all of us slutz agree that all of these options are awesome? What do you think? That is really the question. These are all WAY different animals, that will more than likely all be great for everything you use them for! At least, I think anyway. It comes down to what YOU want as a texture for YOUR microphones, when they're in YOUR room, listening to YOUR sources. I've used the Crane Song all over the place....it rulez. I used the BAE stuff all over the place....it rulez, I've used the Avalon M5, its slightly cool, I've used the Germ all over the place....it rulez, I have a GTQ2....it rulez....But I would buy a DW Fearn VT2 if I had $3800 burning a hole in my wallet.
