Description

Not your everyday preamp! When you're wanting to spice up your 500 Series rack, the Inward Connections Magnum VU does just the trick. This handmade preamp offers classic warmth with a certain airiness plus headroom for days and days. Lending a special flavor to vocals, the Magnum VU is not to be pigeonholed, earning street cred as a secret weapon on guitars, keyboards, and other low-level instruments thanks to its front-panel 1/4" jack. A phase switch anticipates you adding a second Magnum VU to your rig. You'll want to.

Super-sized tone for your lunchbox
Don't let the Magnum VU's non-assuming look fool you, this 500 Series preamp stealthily injects a dose of huge tone into your Lunchbox. We find it has a warm, up-front low-end transitioning into a bombastically punchy midrange and a nicely wide-open top end. It's a different flavor altogether that manages to impart a tight sound without going over the top. Something different than the old standbys and definitely a dark horse to watch.

Sleeper pre

Inward Connections is a well known brand but no one talks about this preamp. They should. It's like API but more depth, I think. I'm thankful my salesman recommended it!
