BAE 1073 DMP Desktop Mic Preamp/DI

Desktop version of the 1073MP with two DI thrus, phase reverse, 48 V for phantom power

Product Description

The BAE 1073DMP is a compact, portable desktop microphone preamp and DI inspired by the legendary Neve 1073 equalizer. With a Carnhill input transformer and a Cinemag DI transformer, the BAE 1073DMP is perfect for adding richness and depth to any instrument in the studio or on the stage.


The BAE 1073DMP uses the same classic Carnhill (St Ives) transformers and hand-wired circuit design as the original Neve 1073 and 1084 modules. Enable phantom power using the 48 V button to record vocals and other instruments with your favorite condenser microphones.

Equipped with the ‘Bootsy Collins’ mod, a Cinemag DI transformer—the BAE 1073 is also a fully featured DI box. Fatten up bass tracks with rich harmonic saturation, or use BAE 1073DMP to re-amp your guitar to one or more cabinets.


The BAE 1073DMP features rugged microphone input and output connectors, as well as a DI input and two DI ‘thru’ outputs. Press the 48 V button to enable phantom power for condenser microphone recordings, or press the phase reverse switch to invert the polarity of your signal. Dial in the perfect gain stage using silky-smooth Elma rotary switches for input and output gain.

With a built-in power supply, and a compact, lightweight design, the BAE 1073DMP is portable enough to take to any recording session. The BAE 1073DMP’s rugged steel chassis makes it the perfect touring companion for capturing studio-quality sound on the road.


All BAE products are hand-made in California using premium-grade analog components. Inspired by classic vintage designs, BAE products combine authentic sound quality with modern features to create versatile, flexible and affordable signal processors for modern audio engineers.

The 1073DMP is one of BAE’s most popular products, and is used by legendary artists, engineers and producers such as Slash, Vance Powell, Snoop Dogg and more.

Great value for money. Built like a tank. Does wonders for any source, mics and instruments. Desktop format is unique and convenient.

Great pre amp. Paired with a good dynamic mic, like the EV RE20, and vocals will sound rich. I also plug in direct for my Fender American P bass and hardly have to do any post processing. Great buy, a little pricey, but great great buy nonetheless.

By HUGO C on June 17, 2020

I use this for vocals, bass and guitar. Adds a good fatness and character to the things you plug into it.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
