    Neve AMS 1073LB 500 Series Preamplifier

    How great is this! A classic Neve 1073 Preamp with the convenience of it being mounted in a 500 series frame.  Launched in 1970, the 1073 is the first choice of leading producers and artists, delivering the unique Neve sound on some of the most famous recordings of the past 40 years. The big, punchy sound of the 1073 complements any musical genre - from rock to pop, hip-hop to rap, thrash to classical.   And now it is available for your 500-series rack!


        Designed and manufactured in England, the 1073LB retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original 1073 Classic microphone preamplifier by using the same architecture, matching components and original hand-wound transformers. And it delivers it in a modern and portable form-factor that professional producers and engineers demand.
