    Hey guys! I'm looking for a good/great preamp to suit my vocals well. In another thread a lot of guys preferred I get a dynamic mic instead of a condenser due to the type of vocals I record; rap. I'm currently looking at the Focusrite ISA One which is about $499.99. Mics that were suggested are: Shure BETA 58A & Sennheiser e835 (plan on getting both). Would this preamp work well with the two? If not? What do you suggest? Whether lower in price or slightly higher?

    Your ISA will work with either of those two microphones. I would say get the SM58 or SM7 rather than the Beta 58 but everyone has their tastes and that is ok. There is no point to changing the preamp unless you are looking for something particular which you can articulate in a concrete manner. Otherwise you have what afflicts many of us. G.A.S.*
