    i went the solder fumes route i started building pedals and after my feet were wet i tackled mic pres and compressors

    1 side affect is how much i enjoyed it
    i think once you get some nice pres you will see your workflow speed up (easier to get sounds that are usable,,maybe more forgiving?)
    but with modern plugins im less convinced that color pre amps are as necessary as when i started
    ymmv
