Lives for gear

Sure, most of the "classic" records were made using just board pres, but that's pretty much the only way things were done back the. As time goes on I think more and more of the recordings that make those lists will be recordings done with various pres, if for no other reason than because that's how people tend to do things these days. The performance and skill of the musicians and engineers will always transcend the gear itself. Doesn't mean that there's any harm in trying different things...switching preamps out won't make nearly the difference than switching drums or drummers would, or putting carrots on your burger.
