Lives for gear
Yea, you can definetly hear a bid difference in this mic pre, I'm sure some of it has to do with the replacing the transformer with a Jenson, but I'll bet the caps had a lot to do with it as well, particularly when using the transformerless output (the TMP has both). But overall, something I've noticed is when you add some high end eq to a recorded vocal, tracks recorded on the lower cost units (I'm generalizing of course not all I'm sure) tend to break up and not sound good, where tracks recorded on a higher end mic pre tend to get airy. So that is always one of my tests when trying out a new mic pre (of course it depends on how much high end the mic pre has to begin with as well).
