    I'm looking for a low cost premp to drive my Beyer M260 this is a bit above what I would like to pay but looks very interesting. I live so far off the beaten path I can't try stuff out which sucks. Any other suggestions? Are the PreSonus BlueTube DP Stereo Dual Path Microphone/Instrument Preamp With 12AX7 Tube I like the price break. I want to try this with vocals (flavor I hope) and possibly record some pipes.

    If you let us know what the rest of your signal chain is it might help in getting better advice.
    I don't know anything about the Grace unit but the Presonus one I have used, it added a smal amount of "warmth" but was not an outstanding difference IMO. This DP unit is a stereo (dual input) that uses one tube not sure how they do that, but Presonus makes a similar single path unit for about half the cost. http://www.platinum-records.com/Presonus-TubePre-Mono-tube-preamp-prod9488.htm

    Here, check out this pre. I've got to get one soon, they have variable input impedance for your ribbon mic and are worth saving up your$ for, i've heard they are more versatile than the Grace:

    I'm running into a Phonic Helic24 firewire board. I also have a TC Helicon Voice Live which I may or may not use. I was just under the impression that the Ribbon have very low output and need a good pre. I will try mine when I get it in but was just checking out possibilities.
