hi all - there's always a raging discussion about mic preamps and which ones are the "best",etc. - but that's usually from the point of the cleanest or purest "warm" sound, and usually for voice work. but what about when you need a preamp for mics that are going to be on a bass cabinet or a guitar cabinet? i would assume that you are going to get and / or want a fair amount of distortion so why spend big $$$ on preamps that you probably won't "hear" anyway? in that light, does it make a difference between the cheapos like behringer or nady or SM audio, etc. or the next tier up which would be presonus tubepres and the like. i want a 4-8 channel preamp that fits into this category. any suggestions?
