I have been absolutely loving the Bova Ball, and i really, really love the Sage electronics mic pre. They have become my “go to” kick and snare pre’s. So open, and HUGE. Even in a big room with a neve or API I would use the Sage pre’s on the kick and snare for sure. I only have two right now, but I hope to get a few more… amazing front end, and really well made.

… Amazing customer support, quality gear that sounds great, unique look and feel specific to you… what more could you ask for!?!? I highly suggest contacting Sage electronics, as They are some of the nicest people to deal with on the planet, gear manufacturer or not….
