Hi, New to the forum but been reading it extensively for the past couple of weeks. My mission: To purchase a Mic and Pre amp. I'm not going to ask which ones to get. Those question have been beaten to death here and I've got more than enough great info from all the posts. I just haven't made my mind up yet. I think I want a tube mic and I'm also thinking about a tube pre. What I'm wondering is basically, are two tubes too much? Is that overkill? I like the coloration that some tube equipment adds to the sound. That is actually what I'm looking for. But would I be better off with perhaps a non-tube mic? Any experiences you can share?
