I bought the LaChappell 992 EG and was really not too excited about buying it, but I did buy it. Little did I know what was yet to come. I had it for a few days and finally got a chance to try it out. I ran a Lewitt LCT 940 in Fet mode. I hooked it up to my LaChapell stood in front of the mic and started to strum a few chords.

I was not at all ready for what came back into my head phones. The more I played the more I was astounded with what I was hearing. It was so natural and so if I wanted in your face. . It is a well thought out mic pre. Love the channel mute. Love you have total control over the input and out put which makes a huge difference in sound. I was very very impressed. Saturday and Sunday I was recording in my studio and used this combination and added the AEA R84 for vocals on both days. Both days I got compliments on how good the combination sounded. All weekend long all my other mic pres were turned off and the LaChapell did everything I needed and the sound was bar none, the utmost best I had ...So if you are thinking about buying this mic pre, stop thinking and buy it. This mic pre has found a home and will never ever be not in my studio, it is that good.
