4-Channel Tube Mic Preamp

The 5001 preamp offers four top quality valve mic preamps in a single 2U package, and now boasts extra features including a discrete mic preamp stage, 30dB pad, instrument DI inputs, improved metering and optional 24 bit digital output. The 5001’s combination of sound and facilities is guaranteed to bring out the best in any microphone - from a low cost dynamic to a vintage large capsule condenser. Separate input and output level controls allow the valve stages to be driven harder if necessary for increased warmth, while still allowing the overall output level to be regulated - absolutely essential if recording direct to tape. The output fader permits anything from complete attenuation through to +15dB of extra output gain - making it ideal for driving today’s high level digital recorders.

Each channel of the 5001 employs one half of an ECC83/12AX7A Sovtek dual triode valve, run from a stabilised 150V DC supply. The valve stage is positioned just after the initial discrete mic preamp stage.
