“The seventh circle stuff is ALL really good it seems. I have tried the API clone, and the N72. I like the API better, and I have a brent averill 1272 and a vintech x72… The N72 was just boring. it works, but nothing fun… The API one is great though.

My favorite new mic pre is the sage electronics pre…


Great, great mic pre. Amazingly open without being bright…. That is the mark of a classic IMO….

Hope that helps!
