Listing Detail Tabs

The PRE-73 MKIII is a one-channel vintage style microphone-, line- and instrument preamplifier. The signal path uses only discrete components like resistors, capacitors and transistors. The in- and output is transformer balanced, using two different transformers, each one optimized for its purpose. This is the way audio components were built before integrated circuits became available.

The circuit used in the PRE-73 MKIII is similar to the preamp section in the classical 1073 module with a corresponding sound character that is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. These classic characteristics have been heard on countless recordings through the years and it is a versatile sound that works very well on most sound sources and in most genres.
The essence of this sound is now available at a surprisingly low cost, making it available to nearly everyone.

FEATURES
– Vintage Style electronics. No ICs in the signal path.
– Max gain in MIC mode is 80 dB,
– GAIN switch range 20 – 80 dB.
– Selectable two position high frequency AIR boost eq, 3 or 6 dB @ 30 kHz.
– Selectable 6 dB/octave two frequency high pass filter at around 40 (HP1) and 170 Hz (HP2).
– Tantalum capacitors in the signal path.
– Switchable impedance in MIC mode, 1200 or 300 Ohms, will change the tone of most mics. The input impedance in LINE mode is 10 kohm.
– Switchable phantom power and absolute phase.
– A high-impedance instrument input for any sound module, electric guitar or bass.
– 4-step LED output level meter.
– The output level control makes it possible to make fine gain adjustments and also to overload the main gain stage(s) for more character and then lower the signal to a suitable level before the output stage.
– Combo XLR/TRS input jack and separate output XLR and TRS jacks for flexible connections.
– Insert jack
– Selectable 600 ohm output termination.
