Too many to list. Just make sure you get something with a ton of gain, cause a 57 is a hungry beast.

did some researching and thinking of getting one of the following

the Golden Age Pre 73
Sytek
Grace m101
great river

was thinking of getting an ARTS tube mp but apparently they hiss at high gain?

The Tl audio PA-1 is a cheap but great sounding tube mic preamp. If you’re recording using a DAW, then I find it can really warm up the mix and give that sweet analogue sound!

Another vote for RNP... Love all of their products.

I also have a Great River in 500 format.. The RNP holds it own compared to my GR IMO....

I would stay way from the ART pre's...

Some awesome pres.
Just pick the one that has what you need.
I already used eureka,studio channel and tube pre, always with great results.
Eureka really added punch to my recordings.
They look cool and sound awesome.

and cheaper too
