Transparent 500 pres? Any good ones out there?

I guess the question is in the heading...

For my uses, the Buzz Elixir was pretty clean relative to most other modules in the format. Wicked DI on the thing too.

Buzz Elixir. Not GML clean (closest thing to the Buzz would be the Hardy), but very clean and fast compared to any of the intentionally colored 500 pieces around.

i liked the buzz elixir not very colored at all.
the MINT JULEP, very little color.
the ShinyBox Si very little color.
the A-Designs EM-Blue has a bit but i love it.
their is a new 500 format pre coming that i can not say much about but when it is out it will defiantly be one to look at as well.

Purple PANTS !!!

Light as a feather and very clean. Still not devoid of "mojo", but its less dense than the BIZ MK for sure.

I Love the Buzz, crystal clear but still very fat sounding somehow.

The Shadow Hills Mono GAMA in Discrete mode sounds great. I have had excellent results on string quartets and Piano, plus you get the bonus of 2 Transformer options for everything else under the sun. Those little Preamps kick ass...
