Daking Mic Pre II Two-Channel Microphone Preamp

Two-channel preamp with transformerless mic input, 70 dB gain, variable HP filter, and Discrete Class A circuitry
MFR# Mic Pre II

Product Description

The Daking Mic Pre II essentially combines two of Daking’s celebrated stand-alone Mic Pre One units in a 1U unit. Like the Mic Pre One, the Mic Pre EQ, and the Mic Pre IV, the Daking Mic Pre II circuitry is based on a classic console design of the 80s with some upgrades: variable high-pass filters on each channel, Jensen input transformers, Class A amplification, extremely high headroom (+24) and a single-sided 48 V power supply.

In addition to the features mentioned above, the Daking Mic Pre II has 70 dB of gain, switchable polarity, a 20 segment combo VU and “peak hold” LED meter, a 20 dB pad with constant reflected impedance, switchable phantom power, direct 1/4 inch instrument inputs on the front panel, and balanced XLR and ¼ inch outputs.

Amazing pre!

By Robert A on April 26, 2022

Super pleased with the Daking pre. A very natural unhyped polished sound quality, lots of clean gain and headroom, high pass filter with rotary control is very useful: again with that natural sounding 12 db roll off, highly recommended!

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.

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.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
