I love using this on everything from vocals to Foley. It has a warmness that is highly sought after these days. It sounds great with shotgun mics in the Foley suite and doesn't sound brittle like some preamps can do to shotgun mics. It has a good relationship with acoustic guitars and doesn't make them sound to sharp. If you have the budget I would highly recommend this preamp
