Matching Mics and Preamps

I get asked "which pre-amp should I buy" a few times a week at least. To put to rest the technical side of this conversation I wrote a Microphone to pre-amp matching article for Issue 117 of Audio Technology which includes an online calculator where you can input key technical specifications of both Mics and pre-amps and the calculator will reveal whether they match well (technically)......Use the links below to open the article.....hope this helps.
