    Hello Kurt - just wondering if you are still enamoured with the Sebatron vmp 4000e or has the Great River MP2NV (or some other within price range) surpassed it.

    I'm looking for a new pre very soon and these 2 (plus Buzz MA 2.2) top the list.

    Uses will be male and female vocals - bluesy to country rock to pop.
    Also guitars synths and bass.

    Thanks Kurt and anyone else who wishes to comment.

    It's still in my rack, so I must still like it. I just don't chat it up much anymore because there's really nothing left to say ... I don't want to sound like a broken record ya' know .. it tends to discount my opinion when the answer is the same everytime ... and as you point out, everyone knows how I feel about these pre amps .. check the archives.

    Hopefully sometime soon, I will get something new from Sebatron to review. I am interested in both the Sebatron EQ and the Thorax ... if I ever get those, you will hear more about them from me.

    A little bird told me audiokid got a Thorax, maybe he has something more to offer?

    I'm loving my Sebatron VMP4000e.

    I have the upgraded version which has more headroom and tweaked EQ. I run a lot through it. I will never sell this thing.

    I also have two channels of Great River NV, but won't compare the two in a "better than" quest. They are different. The Sebatron has it's own signature, organic sound.

    The two channel Seb is about $1,150. The two channel GR is almost twice that amount. These two preamps are not in the same price range.

    Thanks again for your responses.
    Re Sebs giveaway - that bloke's got a vicious sense of humour eh! :) :) :)

    Thanks Bowisc - this backs up what I've been thinking - may need to purchase both.

    Shelltones - you're right with the price area. I'm thinking the 4 channel will be more flexible for stereo recording.
