Microphone Preamp Question For Big Al

I received an e-mail from Mike today with a great question…

“Would you have any suggestions on a good pre amp in the 500 dollar range? I use a Shure SM-57 and a Korg D3200, mic all my guitars and bass. I just can’t afford the computer and software setup just now.”

With all the preamps I’ve gone through in this price range, I think the hands-down winner is the True Systems P-Solo, no question.

The True Systems P-Solo Ribbon Mic Pre

It sounds as good as preamps costing many times more. There are two models, the P-Solo and the P-Solo Ribbon. Since you’re using a dynamic microphone I would have to recommend the P-Solo Ribbon, as it has the extra gain that you’ll need for your Shure SM-57. If you later want to use a microphone that requires phantom power it’s easy and inexpensive ($30-$40) to add an external box that can do that for you.

I personally have this model and I love it, it’s great. If you’d like to read what I’ve written on it before, click here to see my review.
