Mic pre for U47V

Hi all..

Just after some opinions on the ideal mic pre for a valve 47. I'm working with a band with a female singer, very old-school. I know it's all about impedance, but detailed info is hard to find it seems.

I'm generally a fan of the Avalon VT737 but don't think I've ever paired it up with a 47. Also, I don't need compression and EQ so I don't want to pay a hire rate for stuff I don't need.

Anyone ever run a 47 through an API 512?

Thanks in advance..

A 737 will work fine, as will a 512. The bigger question is how the singer couples with the mic. Once you get into actual "professional quality" equipment it is a matter of your personal taste as each unit will have a different texture [but you probably knew that as you posted this in "High End"].

Definitely an ART Tube MP or something from Behringer.

Fletcher - Thanks. I have used 47s many times and am sure it'll be perfect for her. Money's real tight on the session so I think I'll go for the API. I love the sound of the Avalon pre when it's pushed hard, but that's gonna have to be a luxury.

Syntax - Not so helpful.
