Hugo Ball is one of our fine listeners that originally wrote in to complain about something he didn't like on the show. So, we did what comes naturally, we made friends. It turns out that Hugo has quite the project studio and a passion for recording. He also happens to own one of the mic preamps I'm considering adding to my studio as part of my continuing gear conundrum, the Chandler Germanium.
But, is it worth spending over a $1,000 on a mic pre? How much better could it be than a decent lower priced unit? Well, Hugo has both so I convinced him to take a little gear trek, a mic pre shoot out for the benefit of all PSN listeners.
If you'd like to talk to Hugo about doing a voiceover for your project, you can e-mail him at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are the links to the raw wav files featured in the mic pre shootout:

Q: One night in 1968, while Gary U.S. Bonds was playing at a club in New Jersey, he thought he'd give a local kid a break and invite him up onstage to do a number. Who did that kid turn out to be?
