World-Class Tracking Equipment

     Some say the preamp is second to the mic in terms of importance, but we disagree. A great mic like our Blue Kiwi captures an incredible amount of transient magic and harmonic beauty, but it would be useless without a great preamp. The preamps must take the tiny voltage vibrations from the mic and amplify them hundreds of times, all while preserving the subtlest details that create the magic. You could record through a cheap mixer, but your sound would become flat and dry.

 

     We have various flavors of preamps, all of which contain different topologies of tubes, transistors, and transformers, but all have one thing in common: they will give you a rich, full-bodied sound. We'll help you pick one that's perfect for your music.
