Product Description
Additional Information
  • Product Description

    The AEA TRP Ribbon Mic Preamplifier is an ultra high-gain and impedance, minimal-path FET mic pre designed by Fred Forssell.  This low-noise two-channel preamp is for ribbon, moving coil, and tube microphones that do not use or want phantom power.  This allows for improvements in minimal path circuitry and also rids the unit of phantom-power blocking capacitors.  Zener diodes on the input protect the input stage if external phantom power is applied.

    First stage gain is set from +6 to +63 dB by a 12 position Grayhill switch.  Another 20dB of gain is available after the output level potentiometer.  Polarity reversal and high pass switches on the two channels are complimented by operating and overload LED metering.

    Gain and Clarity by Charles

    Normally, I would not rate a product so highly due to the simplicity of the product, but the amount of gain and clarity with this mic pre warrants high marks. I've used this pre primarily on Beyerdynamic M160 and M130 mics with stellar results. When you set the gain properly, you will have no floor noise, but plenty of tone. As a saxophone player, I have found my contemporary sax sound with this AEA and M160. I'm considering another. I'm looking forward to trying my SM7B, Telefunken dynamic mics, and future ribbon mics with this pre.
