My friend asked me to do some research for him on a preamp for a Sennheiser 416. I'm stumped as I have been working in a professional studio my whole career and don't know where to start looking.
The lower the cost the better. He didn't exactly give a price-range but I'm guessing around 300-500$. He doesn't want to break his bank but he doesn't want bad quality either. Does anyone have any recommendations they have used and were happy with that are consumer-pro quality?
Thanks in advance!
