Scott Stewart, dusty reels studio
from West Asheville, NC
The Grace m101 is a "wire with gain" style preamp. What you put in is what you get out. It excels at bringing your mics to life. It sounds great with condensers but where this pre really shines is bringing clean gain to gain hungry dynamics, without adding noise at high gain settings (this baby is dead quiet!). If you have never used a quality pre with your 57, then you would straight up be blown away at how good a 57 can sound. I bought one, then had to get another so I could have a stereo pair. It's the best stereo pair that you can get for under 1,100 bucks period. Transients, harmonics, and tonal character of your instruments and mics are maintained. This pre preserves the highs, doesn't alter the mids, and delivers a full body to the low end like few pres anywhere close to this price range can(up or down.) I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to add a quality pre to any rig, low end or high end .
