    Tube Tech ME1B

    The Tube-Tech MEC 1A is an all-tube channel strip featuring a class A microphone/instrument preamplifier, a 3 band parametric equaliser and an Opto style compressor in the one unit. The MEC 1A is a stunning sounding unit, that also features VU metering, and the compressor is linkable for stereo applications. The MEC 1A is essentially the MP 1A mic preamp, EQ 1A active EQ and the CL 2A compressor in the one 2-unit rack mountable channel strip.
