2 channel pre for m160 overhead

Hey guys,

So I went and bought a pair of m160s to try on the overheads of a drum set. BTW thanks to Warren at front end audio.
Problem I think I am going to have is a good 2 channel pre for them. The only 2 channel pres I have now is a Vintech 1272 and a Langevin (all the rest are one channel). I think the Vintech is going to color to much and Langevin is not quite enough (it may just be my unit). So can anyone recommend a good pre to try for around $1600 or under? I think a nice quiet pre with no coloring is the way I want to go, right?

Also does anyone have any cool tricks I should try with the overheads using the m160s? Just so you know I was using SROs from Earthworks, so this is going to be a completely different sound for me.

Glenn, you're very welcome of course.

I would seriously pick up a Pacifica for overhead duties and well...pretty much everything else. The Pacifica delivers a great presence and punch on drums which is perfect for the music you're doing. You're going to love it on guitar cabs and vocals also.

Well look who it is!!!!!!!!! WARREN

I thought those have a lot of color to them. You think that would work ok with those mics? I was hoping someone would say a 428, but maybe not.
