Mic Preamp Shootout (Acoustic Guitar)

I posted this on another thread but I thought I would open a new one seeing that I think many of you would be interested. This is a microphone preamp shootout I did when I was shopping for my last preamp. I only had acoustic guitar on hand and used a new U87. The levels might not match so if you are absolutely interested I can send you the stems.

The preamps in this shootout are the API 512, BAE DMP, Chandler Little Devil, Chandler Germ Mk II, Daking Mic Pre 500, LaChapelle 583, Neve 517 500 series

ps- please excuse my playing as I had no intention of posting this on Gearslutz.

Cool post Travis, I really enjoyed listening. FWIW, the Daking impressed me most and my 2nd fave was the Neve after you push the gain up a bit.

The other clips are all usable of course but the Daking really shines IMO.

BTW, I really dig your track titled Ambient.

Hey Turbo, I appreciate you listening and the compliment! A year and a half ago I ended up getting the Chandler Germ MK II. Still a great pre. Chandler just came out with the TGII pre in 500 series format which is very interesting. No affiliation fyi.
