budget preamp + condenser mic to use with Zoom r16?

anyone has budget preamp and condenser mic to recommend
to use with Zoom r16?

I have my zoom r16 and it works great. I also have a MXL 990 condensor mic so I just plug it into zoom r16 so it uses the builtin preamp with zoom r16 for my vocal recording.

however, for this setup, I do not think the voical recording is that great, I do pop / r & b. therefore I'm looking for an upgrade setup. I guess I should look into a better condenser mic and a standalone preamp? has anyone experienced different preamps and microphones that works great with zoom r16 for pop / R&B vocals?

my budget is about $500 for both items.

thank you for your help

gap pre-73 with an apex 460.

right out of the box, is pretty killer. both are perfect platforms for modding, too.

Before thinking about which make of pre or mic, i would seriously consider spending your whole budget [ and xtra $50+] on one item with the view to upgrade the second one later... I don't know that exact mic but i would say its capable and at this point get yourself a better pre...
Think ... Chameleon labs
True systems
DAV
Grace

IE proper gear/no frills at friendly prices...
Good luck
