BAE 1073MP Single-Channel Mic Preamp with PSU
The BAE 1073MP is a rack-mountable preamp and high-pass filter based on the legendary Neve 1073 equalizer. With classic Carnhill transformers a hand-wired Class A design, the BAE 1073MP captures the unmistakable sound of the original Neve 1073. Ideal for tracking engineers who are looking for classic tone at an affordable price, or mixing engineers who want to add depth to their mixes without breaking the bank, the BAE 1073MP delivers vintage tone at a fraction of the price.
The BAE 1073MP uses the exact same circuit as the original Neve 1073—from the Carnhill transformer coupled input to the hand-wired Class-A design. The BAE 1073MP captures the same iconic sound signature and wide bandwidth as the original. Known for its rich low-end, edgy highs and focused midrange, the 1073 has been used on countless hit records.
The BAE 1073MP also introduces new features for added versatility. An all-new line input on the rear can be used to process line-level signals—perfect for fattening up the mix bus! And with a DI input for passive and active instruments on the front, there’s no signal that won’t benefit from the colorful sound of the BAE 1073MP.
The BAE 1073MP features a silky-smooth Elma rotary switch and classic red knob for setting line and mic level gain. Four push-buttons provide added functionality for a wide range of studio applications. The DI button engages the high-impedance instrument input for recording guitars and synths, while the LINE enables the line-level input.
The 48v button provides phantom power for condenser microphones. The phase reversal button inverts the phase of a signal—perfect for recording snare bottom mics! Finally, a toggle switch on the right lets you select 1200 or 300 ohm microphone impedance for capturing pristine sound with any microphone.

This is one of the best pre amps for me. Talking about it well is too easy, so I mention the only flaw that a Hi-end product shouldn't have: the front panel is too thin and almost bends, the same goes for the whole casing. For a product of this quality, I expect the robustness of a tank, which even cheaper products have.
Classic Neve 1073 sound. A 57 on a guitar cabinet through this BAE 1073 into your DAW and you’ll hear that classic guitar sound. I’ve really liked this on every source I’ve tried so far. Other than guitar, my favorite has been vocals and also running a U47 through this into an 1176 on a mono drum room track
This thing has clarity across the frequency spectrum and saturates beautifully in a way that UAD plugins (as great as they are) just can’t compete with. Worth the price of admission.
I can use this on anything and it just sounds so good!I really like this on hiphop vocals. Origin/1073mp/1176/LA2A
