Buying couple more Mic Pre

I already have Great River MP-2NV and just ordered API A2D for the new project studio I’m putting together.

Will be buying two more units for more flavor and to compliment the ones I already own.
Tested or worked on most of these units (except the API A2D) and love them all but will only buy 2 of the following units.
Wunder PaFour
Chandler Germanium
Shadow Hills Gama

Any suggestions from people who work with these units regularly?

Why does it have to be only those units?

I'm trying to choose from the current badge of designs plus those units are the only ones I tested. Nevertheless, open to suggestions.

Why does it have to be a different flavor ? I've been subscribing to the Whitman school of thought lately - one mic pre for the whole record and it's transformed my sound. It's great to have one or two extra flavors but if I were you I'd concentrate on more API or Great Rivers.

out of those 3 I like the wunders. Really sweet sound.
The germanium is kinda spongy and 'old' sounding which is not to my liking.
It's a cool unit for a retro vibe but I like a polished pristine sound. The gama is nice its kinda like an api 512 on Anadrol and with more features

They are all good but I think the wunder is the best for me.
what type of music do you usually produce?? I would say the gama is the best as far as being versatile though
and is a great price. I think I paid 650 for mine
