I ended up going for a 3rd option :)

3 Beyerdynamic opus 83 (pencil condensers) mics to add to my 1 stedman
large condenser.

For the preamp i got  an SM pro ep84. Pretty cheap on ebay, and a
company from Melbourne, Australia so I can go around and complain if
it's not great ;)

ADAT option to plug into my echo Gina.

Hopefully the preamp will turn up today so I can try recording the
band. The Beyerdynamic mic's sound fantastic so far. They sound really
clear, crisp and balanced recording my Collings acoustic. From a quick
comparison I think I prefer them over my much more expensive Stedman
large diaphragm condenser.  Though I think the Stedman suits vocals

I have one art tube MP preamp, Should I  run the vocal mic through
this or will the solid state sm pro pre's sound much nicer anyway?

Thanks everyone for the great advice!
