Can't go Wrong With This One
by Mike K from Austin, TXthese are my all time favorite for drum overheads, coupled with a pair of AKG 414b-uls's. They are also excellent room mics, sound huge on bass guitar and keyboards (using the DI). They really excel... read more [+] for just about anything you can throw at them - I have never been disappointed with these.

The build of all of the A-Designs 500 series pres (I have the blue and gold varieties as well) is extremely solid. The layout of the minimal controls is very easy to use and an LED indicates when phantom power is engaged.

The P-1 was used in every phase of tracking on my current project. Snare->57->P-1 gave a live, snappy snare sound that needs very little in the mix to sit perfectly. Bass went into the P-1 and was nice and fat even in dry rough mixes. This thing really shines on vocals, though. A Studio Projects C1 into the P-1 gave such a sweet, silky smooth, slightly airy tone that the two other singers in the band were blown away when they heard their tracks played back.
I don't think you can go wrong with this one. close [-]
A mini Pacifica.... sigh... there is a God! If you love the sound of the Pacifica and only need one channel for your 500 rack, this is the module to get. Great sound all the same features and it fits in your A Designs 500 rack. What a great pre.
