I'd say that using the same (good) pre-amp will make everything sound good.
The main purpose of pre-amp is to make the solid pleasant signal out of the (weak) source.

Not all pre-amps are equal tho.

The pre-amps like API 512c or UA Solo/610 for example are very versatile and always useful, no matter what you're doing, tracking synths or guitars or recording a shaker through SM58. Having both handy doesn't hurt either.
