A-Designs Audio EM-Silver (Demo Deal) – No Longer Available

Single-channel EM-Series mic pre/DI card - Silver

Product Description

The A-Designs “EM Series” is a twist on the P-1. Each color has its own sound. This was accomplished by using different custom wound output and input transformers.

The EM-Silver has a custom wound steel output transformer which will translate into a darker sound than the P-1, EM-Red and EM-Blue. We find the EM-Silver to be a very good match with ribbon microphones; a good combination due to the fact that steel transformers were widely used in the early days of recording and broadcasting along with ribbon microphones.

With today’s influx of ribbon microphones there is a wide choice of character range available for you to determine which tone you are looking for or need.  Another feature of the EM-Silver is a “DI” (direct inject) for use with electric instruments. We find that this is a great pre for bass guitar and keyboards.  In addition, you may like to try the EM-Silver (depending on microphone) for your “kick” when recording drums. This is a very versatile tool for any recording situation.

  • -20dB pad
  • Phase
  • 48v phantom
  • Cast aluminum knob
  • Thumb screws (for easy install and un-install)

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
