    Question best mic pre/compressor to match KSM-32 ??

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Just got a Shure KSM-32... great mic used it may times before and had nice results.

    I'm currently using the Blue Tube & Blue Max and thats.... OK. I just think that it could be much better.

    What mic pre & compressor do you think would give me the best preformance for the dollar?

    Please refrain from saying Neve, Avalon, Focusrite, Manley or any of the other big dog pre's out there. Those can make a coke bottle sound good but I can't sell my car for a pre-amp.

    Thnx

    Cool

    whats your $$$ budget?...

    will it be for vocals only? if not, what other applications?....

    i would go with either a JoeMeek VC3Q or VC6Q, depending on your budget.....
