    Pre for an SM7 or an RE-20?

    I got to test out a Shure SM-7 and an EV RE-20 just recently on some male and female voices. I tried them with 2 different pre-s: a Pre-sonus Eureka and my SP VTB-1. In both cases - I didn't have enough power to drive them. I ended up maxing out the gain and getting a bunch of...

    High tom --> Snare buzz

    So I just tuned my toms for the first time. It took me 3 full sweeps (and I know I still have a lot to learn about tuning toms) - but they sound great. Better than any toms I've owned so far. I imagine that in time, they'll sound even better as I improve my ears. So I put all the toms back...
