Upgrade Mic or Channel strip 1st??

Currently have a tlm 49 going into an empirical labs mike-e

Plan on u upgrading to a u99 and a retro powerstrip

Its going to be a few months before I can get both

Should I get the mic or the powerstrip 1st?

Thanks for your opinions in advance

I’d get the U99 first. The Mike-E can be really clean and tell you exactly how the U99 and TLM49 differ.

The U99 is a fantastic vocal mic, especially nice on tenors. I’ve only used the Powerstrip a couple times, and it’s a quality unit, but it didn’t grab me.

i'm leaning toward the u99 first.

mic makes the biggest difference is what they say.

i just really want my hands on the powerstrip compressor!
