I rencently bought one of those mics from a TB'er and I was wondering if anyone had any experience running the mic through a D-Tar Solstice and if so what were your impressions. It seems that the mic is really hot when I used it. I had to use the 20db pad button and when I did it really did sound wonderful. I was just wondering if it is supposed to be so "hot". I have the "regular" preamp pictured at the bottom of this link: http://www.appliedmicrophone.com/products/show/11 Thanks.
