I am seeking pointers on this decision, even created my own thread but have gotten no response (probably because I have not really learned what to do here on Gearslutz, lol). Anyway, my feeling is that the TLM 103 will really shine on a Tube Pre more than Solid State (and that is based off of all my work with a U87 through an LA-610, which are both out of range for me). Is it not the pre and should I have gone with the C-414 over the 103? I do almost exclusively vocals (80% hip hop, 20% male/female vox). I also already have a baby bottle, a reactor, and the Avantone CV-12 Tube Mic. Any thoughts will be appreciated.
I've picked up a gap 73 mk3, UA 710, and TONE BEAST recently and let me tell you. The GAP and UA Has earned its place in my setup. I LOVE THEM!

I am into the 1990's hip hop and use a twin also. I love that phat vintage boom bap sound and with those 2 I got it.
