Would getting one channel of both be unwise for resale and actual use? I feel like having a one channel system might be a little impractical being that I use more than 1 mic at a time in a lot of situations...
Anybody have any experience with this?
w/ 2k Id buy a GML if I wanted clean and punchy and If I wanted a Class A British flavor I'd go Wunder audio. Much better than GR...........
Also API is an option for phatt sound. More Versatile than GR especially nice on drums and gtrs. Also A-Designs Pacifica is very sweet on many sources in many situations.
so many options. My suggestion is block out a couple hours at a local studio that has a variety of preamps and go down there and cut some tracks. That will be the best investment you can make before you make a big 2k investment. I got burned a few times blindly buying preamps based on recommendations. If money is tight, try before you buy you will not regret it.
