altec 1612a
i have an altec 1612a and i love it.
a simple sm7 or even sm57 sounds amazing passing trough it; very "full sound" I mean. and the compression is what i want for what i do(rockkkk)
i prefer it to my Avalon vt737, which is the last thing i expected...!
for vocals i don't know what kind of high gear mic will be the best for that preamp : coles, neumann, brauner?
anybody to tell me a great couple 1612a + ...
