go-to Pre amp?

Hi Erol, you mentioned a nice pre amp going in a few times. Do you have a go to piece of kit for this or do you jump around depending on what the source is? Could you elaborate which are your favourites?

yeah, I just bought a UA (and I can't remember the model for the life of me as I'm not in the studio) but that is spectacular! I also use my Trident Fleximix which I find to sound really warm and bold.. I also have some Schlumberger pre's from the late 60s which are brutal, I used them across the drums on the Late Of The Pier album.. Other than that I sometimes just use the ones on the front of my RME 800 as they hit the spot if I want something transparent.. I believe a mix of old and new, expensive and cheap always covers every base

I should add that the Schlumbergers are also mic amps (I have 4 mic amps, 4 line amps), very rare and insanely different to anything else I've used
