Très belle recréation d'un 1073
tuxy 30.01.2024
Qui n'a pas rêvé de Neve en regardant le docu Sound City ?
Même si c'est une recréation, pour ce prix on a un super préamp qui va du clean à une saturation du transfo de sortie si on le pousse.
Niveau fabrication : une claque, rien à redire !
Je ne regretta pas du tout mon achat.
