Golden Age Project Pre73 MKIV Pre Amp - Half Rack
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.
- 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.
