Lives for gear

more mic or more pre?

Hello, I'm looking to put together a decent vocal chain. Currently using AT4050 into Mackie 800r. I think I want a u47 type mic, and I've been reading largely positive reviews on the Pearlman TM1. Some 47 style mics are reported to beat the Pearlman, but at a much higher price point. Similiar money could buy Wunder, etc. or the TM1 and a used Pendulum Quartet or similiar. Should I put the money in the mic and live with the mackie pres, or grab the TM1 and a quality pre? tracking rooms are treated but not great. Thanks in advance
