Microphone Preamplifiers
Hello Mr Schmidt

which microphone preamps do you use on bass and vocals? Do you go out of your way to use one brand over another? (martech vs a neve 1081 or mastering labs for example)

Thanks for your input.

I love the Martec and I also love the Neve pres. I have a lot of special pres that i use, Mastering Lab, Studer Valve, upstate audio and some great Neves. I kind of mix and match. I use my ears to tell me what is working best. Al
