Yes, Avedis at Averill is a good guy and willing to spend time sharing his knowledge. Here's another 'amen' for the Brent Averill 1272's.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">I have one and like it a lot, but I don't use it as much as I thought I would. The tube chain is not as distinctive as in other pres (even with the Russian tubes option, which I recommend). Don't get me wrong -- I think it sounds great, it's just not quite as warm and round as, say, the Summit TPA-200B (which is my gold standard for tube preamps). The solid-state pre is very clean, and is my first choice when I want as accurate a response as possible.

The STT-1 EQ is very, very nice. I haven't had alot of luck with the compressor, but I'm a bit impatient. In comparison, it seems like I can get a great sound with a Distressor almost instantly...

Houdy... i have a bunch of 1073's and 1066's in my board. I love them like they were my little kids and they don't puke on you at 3am. The EQ is very musical. If you can cough up the extra dough for these guys ... you will love them too.

Just saw the topic and thought I'd try to get a question in. Is anybody out there recording foley? If so, which pre do you use? I'm looking for suggestions on good foley pre's. Low noise and fairly flat response are my primary needs. I've been using pre's on an O2R which are always disappointing. I've also tried my focusrite green pre which sounds decent but doesn't have enough gain to really get clean tracks. If anyone has any thoughts please throw them out there.

Basically if I were you, I would get one of the following:

1. Neve 1066/1073/1081's or Chandler LTD-1

2. API 512 or 7600

3. Millenia STT-1

Any of those would be a great choice if you were to only have one.

I design studios for many platinum selling hip hop artists, and all of them are using one of the above for vocals. I've seen a lot of artists using the Avalon VT-737SP in the past. I am not a huge fan of that particular piece, and it's popularity has dwindled in the last year or two.

If you want, I can give you some personal advice, give me a call at 781-982-2600 Ext625
