Product Description

The spirit of classic British consoles lives on in the Pre 73 MKIV, and it sounds warm, punchy, sweet, and musical. Use it to add tone and colour to your favourite mics, or keep things clean; it also doubles as a line-level preamp and DI box for electric guitar and bass. Get classic console tone and get the most out of your mic locker.

Key Features:

  • Classic Console Colour:
    Get vintage colour and punch by cranking up the Gain knob without fear, a dedicated Output control lets you attenuate the signal so you can drive the preamp without overloading your interface inputs.
  • Connect To Anything:
    The Pre-73 MKIV’s switchable +48 V mic input lets you use both condenser and dynamic microphones, while its 80 dB of Gain make it ideal for use with sensitive ribbon microphones on delicate sound sources. Line- and instrument-level inputs allow further connection to nearly any audio source, and you get an Insert jack for using external processors like EQs and compressors. You have your choice of TRS or XLR out.
  • Quality First:
    True to classic preamps of yesterday, the Pre 73 MKIV was designed with a focused attention to component choices and build quality. No surface-mount components or integrated circuits are used, and all inputs and outputs are transformer-balanced, using two different purpose-optimized transformers. Its external power supply eliminates the risk of self-noise, and its metal half-rack chassis is both sturdy and portable.


  • Broad classic-console tonal palette from clean and transparent to warm and punchy
  • Tone-sculpting options include Output attenuation, selectable low-pass filter, Air EQ boost, and switchable mic impedance.
  • 80 dB of gain for use with sensitive ribbon mics or other low-gain sources
  • Line and Hi-Z options for use with sound modules, keyboards, and electric guitars
  • Old-school point-to-point wiring; no surface-mount components or integrated circuits
  • Insert jack for connecting external processors.
  • XLR and TRS out; Phase reverse switch
  • Sturdy build quality in a metal half-rack chassis

I was really impressed with this preamp. Excellent sounding vintage ‘Neve’ style preamp. It sounds great for Pop/ Rock music. I love it on Bass guitar, ( it transformed a cheap bass guitar into sounding fantastic on the DI). Vocals are also much better sounding through this pre, dial in the gain and the distortion adds lovely harmonics for that ‘Neve’ vibe. It is a bit noisier than real Neve or BAE units but this costs £256!!! An excellent addition to my home studio and I will now be looking at their premier range next as they include the Carnhill transformers which add about £200 to the price but if this pre is anything to go by I would hope for great results.
