Helios Vintage Type 69 w/Lustraphone Racked Pair (Vintage) – No Longer Available

Classic British mic pre/EQ

Product Description

Classic mic pre with a 3 band EQ. Discrete. Switchable lo/mid. Fixed 10k top. Hi-pass.

Unlike anything you have used, if you are stuck in API-Neve land. These are so unique. The mids are so funky and sweet ---- guitars and snare drums from heaven-woody and sweet tone!!! 700 to 2k to die for. Lows and highs reminiscent of Pultec. Extremely open mic pre. In mic shootouts, these are as open as the king daddy Telefunken V76m. What else is there to say? Transform your life!

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.
