Sm7b pre amp suggestions
(If this is the wrong forum mods please move this thread)So I currently have a basement studio, 13.5' x 9 x 7(treated with an auralex roominator kit), that I use mainly for tracking/mixing my own hip hop projects. I mostly record vocals with the odd acoustic guitar or bass every so often. My current signal chain is a Presonus Eureka into a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24(non dsp). As far as my limited mic collection, I own an Sm-58, an Sm-57, and a Rode Nt-1a. Monitoring through some JBL LSR2325P in case you're interested.
That being said I'm going to have some money for some gear soon (between 6 and 7 hundred) and I have already decide that I am going to be picking up a Shure Sm7b after reading many threads on this site about its versatility for the genre I'm working in.
Now I also wanted to purchase another preamp as well. The two that have been most attractive to me after doing some research are the GAP pre-73, and the Black Lion Audio B12a.
So my questions are this. Do any of you slutz have experience with the sm7b and these two pre amps? What other pre amps might you suggest would be a good match for this mic?
