The PREQ-73 is a one-channel vintage style microphone-, line- and instrument preamplifier with a two band shelving equalizer offering a smooth and effective sound shaping. This is essentially the Pre 73 with EQ added. We often get asked what is the PREQ 73 as I guess it's not quite as well known as the PRE 73. Well it's simple, it's a PRE 73 with EQ. There's nothing like a touch of EQ sparkly when recording so why wouldn't you buy this little gem!
