Sweetwater Advice

  • Kenny Bergle

    Beautifully clear and clean with tons of headroom (and even up to 70dB in the
    'ibbon mode), this Grace preamp is no exception to the wonderful build-quality and audio excellence of the whole Grace line. This 2-channel version goes well with any mic (where one wants clear, transparent, un-colored results), one of my favs to use with this pre is the Royer SF-24 stereo ribbon. Also Mike and Eben and all the Grace employees are super with supporting Sweetwater customers. Love their stuff!

    LOTS OF SOUND!! 17 years RE experience

    Best ever but no Line Level!!

    I am definitely in love. My girlfriend is ok too. ;) but seriously its very very very very VERY clean and accurate without feeling sterile at all!!

    Makes me wish it had line level.

    Despite no line level i cherish this thing! hope it works forever! 20k ohm ribbon mode is stunning. i am afraid to use my ribbons with anything else. A pair of Royers and this are a match made in somewhere better than heaven.

    remarkably clean

    This preamp is beautifully clean. Its almost like getting all new mics. The ribbon mode sounds amazing - some dynamic mics seem to sound much better through it, too. I would say there is definitely an advantage to the somewhat higher than usuaul input impedances (8.1 K and 20K for ribbon mode!). This amp's output is clean and open. What goes in is pretty much what comes out, but with gain. I hear very little coloring of the source. Things sit nicely in the mix, and can take a little eq nicely. Don't wait - buy one now! I sat on the fence for quite a while - it was my mistake!

    Search no longer, the Grace M201 is IT!!!

    The first time I heard Grace Mic pre's was in the 90's, the 801 to be exact, and I have always been blown away by the incredible accuracy and spaciousness of the Grace pre's. I also consulted with other engineers and studios who love the transparency, openness and shimmering clarity of this pre. It absolutely phenomenal, if you are wondering what to get, wonder no more! This pre is IT,THE FINAL WORD! In my opinion, nothing else comes close in value, features and sound, I can't believe what this thing contains in one package. Also, when people see it...they say.."Wow, that's a nice looking piece". In fact every wants to touch it, it looks and sounds like the Mercedes,BMW, Cadillac of gear, and it is! Get it, you won't regret it!!

    This is the one!

    If you need an all around coverage preamp that works
    for everything from DI Bass, ribbon mic and dynamic.
    This is the one you should get. It has the clarity
    and openess you'd expect from Grace. It will not paint you in a corner. You get what your source provides. You can manipulate from there
