Best Preamp 1 Channer for Audio Technica AT5040?

I recently bought an AT5040, does anyone have experience with this extremely high-output microphone?

I would like to buy a 1 channel preamp to devote to this mic ... advice?

I think it is necessary that the pre has at least one pad of at least 20db ... and possibly also the regulation of the output, in order not to saturate the converter. It should also be a pre that handles high levels of input because this microphone has a very high output.

Tips ???

Hello Paolo,
What are you using the 5040 with at the moment? Which pre did you use?
What are you recording with it?

Paolo,
I have been using the AT5040 for almost 2 years now, and I have found great success with the great river ME-1NV.

+1 on the Great River. It sounds great and is versatile IME. It’s surprising too that it cost the same as it did almost 15 years after its release!!

Yeah, I really recommend you Great River. It's my favorite preamp. I used it also with Audio-Technica.

Check out Revive Audio. They fix up good used preamps and make great clones.
