hi sebatron. i'm very pleased with my vmp-2000e. out of all my preamps that includes an API and neve copy i turn to the seb as my goto preamp first.i sometimes wonder if i should have got 4000e for the extra channels.it certainly has made my recordings another level. do you recommend any particular mics for acoustic guitar ? can you recommend a suitable compressor to match/? what else have you got up you sleeve.?
