Forssell SMP-2 vs Gordon Model 5 Condenser Microphones

Years back, I borrowed a friend's original SMP-2 for my amateur home solo recordings on my Steinway D.

The Forssell and the Fearn VT2 had the most open, sweet and musical sound out of the many pres I tried.

I lost the desire to record at home - these days I prefer to leave that to the Pro engineers , my time is better spent practicing and writing - but "that" sound is itched in my mind.

What's your vocal choice(s) preamp nowadays?
