: Try Pendulumn Audio. Look on the web. The owner Greg is the nicest person.
:I've heard great stuff about Steve Rabe from SWR. He makes some EXTREMELY versatile preamps. Also I am just about to receive Schertler's new preamp and heard it's a killer. I owned a T.C. Electronics parametric equalizer/preamp that was just amazing. I heard it's fairly rare but keep your eyes out for one. As far as mics I personally use a Rode NTK tube condenser ($500 with power supply and cords) and it is just great. I have had the pleasure of recording with some Neumanns and a Soundelux. They worked perfectly for the bass. As far as studio preamps go I really like the Avalon piece that is like a half-space width DI/pre and it rules for anything, especially bass guitar. Hope that helps.
