Need a cheap preamp for talk-back mic

    I've got a Tascam FW-1082 with the headphone output going into a Samson C-Que headphone distribution amp. I want to add a talk-back mic without sacrificing any of the board's 8 inputs.

    The C-Que has an additional inject input that mixes with the stereo outs from the board. I'd like to add a preamp and mic there. I tried it with one of my other preamps and it works well.

    Can anyone recommend a cheap single channel mic-pre? Say under $50. Both XLR and 1/4" inputs would be nifty. Sound quality obvisouly doesn't have to be high, or even good. Just decent enough for my musicians to hear me.

    Thanks for your time!

    Behringer makes a cheap single channel pre about $50 I think. Rane makes one, more in the $100 range. There's the Studio Projects VTB-1 and a company called SM Pro Audio is doing some cheapo pres in that price range .... there are many to choose from.

    Check out Rolls. They make a cheap little preamp box.

    These are all great suggestions! I'm gonna keep an eye out on ebay for some used versions of these! Many thanks!
