My desert pre would have to be huge, big enough to house at least a Keg, it would have to sound good too.

haven't tried VIPRE or NPNG yet, would love to, but i think what i'd take at this point is a 1084.

I gotta give a shout out for the ADL 600. Used one last year and was super impressed by it. sounded BIG with tons of depth and detail.

Definitely way to go Jules.

So +1 for Kate Moss.
Related to pre, some Chandlers maybe...

first thing you will need after the SM57 / neve 1073 / mic cable / monitors / and some sort of recorder washes up on shore ... is ...

Gilligan to ride the bike contraption that the Professor made to get juice out of the coconut power station ... and Ginger to make Gilligan ride faster every time she trys to bend over in that fancy cocktail dress ..

i myself, would be singing into a coconut after a couple weeks alone on a desert island ... and dreaming of Ginger in that cocktail dress ...

but then Ruth Buzzy (in a T-shirt one size to small) shipwrecks on the island with an entire high end remote recording rig with a generator and fuel for years and i have to take one for the team every time i want to record something ...

so i would say the coconut is my desert island mic .. since noone is there to hear it it sounds great to me ..

sorry guys just a little fun ..
