I really like using this on my voice. It seems to work fairly well. I have heard that dynamic mics are affected much more strongly by preamps than condenser mics because the gain change required is so much greater. This leads to two questions: 1) Will a better mic pre fundamentally change the sound of a 57? and 2) Which is the best pre to use with a 57? There must be some standard combinations for this mic. Can someone recommend a budget pre that would work in this capacity? Thanks in advance.
