A pair of audio heads with a studio based outside Tokyo recently contacted me with their first recorded mic preamp comparison tests. I was impressed and happy to have made friends from studio trenches far far away. Let's take a look at what they came up with.
The guys at Studio J conducted their preamp test by recording two songs through the following preamps:
- Chandler Limited TG2
- Chandler Limited Germanium
- Chameleon Labs 7602
- Focusrite Red 6
- Grace Design 201
- Sound Devices MP-1
- TC Electronics Konnekt 24D
- Yamaha 02R

We were joined by Mayumi Sano on her cello, playing Pauly J’s original song “Maybe Sometimes“.
