No experience with the Focusrite, but the 737sp was quite possibly the best sounding pre and comp I've ever heard. As good as a Neve pre and an LA-2A. I don't know what more you could want.
no one else has any experience with both of these, I find it hard to believe fella's....... please enlighten me.
Avalon all the way. It's one of the new standards in single channel opto-compressor preamp for the studio. At 2k it's not cheap but it's a quality piece. Especially good with the ubiquitious Neuman U87.
I've heard good things about Joe Meek OneQ
I'd choose the Mellennia SST over both although you can't go wrong with any. You're talking about a tube v. transistor pre and opto v. fet compressor so it'll be tough to make any direct comparison. The Focusrite's comp might work for more sources. Being a bass player though, you'd probably prefer the opto comp.
