I use the Great River and the Flamingo and love them both.
For vocals, a SLAM wins every time but both the GR and Flamingo are excellent mic pres.

The GR has more of a 'sound', maybe fatter? it's all subjective.
The Flamingo is slightly cleaner, sounds great on overheads and acoustics.
The GR is better for ribbons. It's great for electric guitars too.
I don't think you can go wrong with either. Get both.
peace,
