vintage mic pre's

wasn't sure where to post this, so i hope this will do. i've been sifting through tons of schematics of compressors, pre's and all kinds of stuff. basically, i'm asking for a couple recommendations for some very nice sounding mic preamps so that i can dig out the schematics and decide which one i'm going to build. which ones do you find yourself coming back to again and again in every session? already on the list of stuff to build is an 1176LN and an LA-2A, i'm just looking for more stuff (specifically a preamp or two) to add to the list so i can prioritize and get to building! thanks guys!

p.s. vintage stuff will be easier to find schematics for, so keep that in mind
