Smooth, good quality, useful
slimcadie1, 13.02.2019
I use this for smooth signals like strings and accordians. The 2nd-3rd harmonic dial can add subtle character and I use the impedance switches quite a lot to soften harsh signals (close-miced violin). It sounds great but I wouldn't want them to be my only pre-amps.

What I miss:
- Stepped gain (on the 1st stage) - this would make it useful for stereo micing
- Phase switches - if you have 4 mics, you'll probably want to flip phase somewhere in the set-up!
- High pass filters

Despite this, I love it for what it's good at!

SSL quality for small budgets
Hugo Varvoglis, 02.04.2014
Extra clean sound with a lot of gain prezzzz.
You can add some character to the sound with the VHD.
Best value for money and you have an SSL taste in your studio.
