Product Description
Additional Information
  • Product Description

    The Black Lion Auteur MkII 500 is one of the most “bang for your buck” 500 Series preamps in existence! You get all of the sound of the 1⁄2 rack version, but with the addition of a Hi-Z input! It features an ultra-fast input stage that captures lots of detail and nuance, and a signal path transformer that adds some “beef” on the way out. Once you hear the Auteur MkII 500, you’ll want to load your 500 rack full of ‘em!
