Manley Mono Mic Pre – No Longer Available

Single-channel tube preamp with balanced transformer-coupled XLR outputs
MFR# 40MPB

Product Description

The Manley Mono Mic Pres are available in two-channel or Mono channel versions, both selectable 40 to 60 dB of gain in precise 5 dB steps. These are primarily intended for use with modern capacitor (condenser) microphones.

Both models are built in thoroughly modern cases with extruded aluminum sides and easily removable top and bottom access covers. Our handsome 1/4" thick CNC milled front panels contain an engraved-for-a-lifetime inlaid insert machined to jewelers' standards. Each unit is also supplied with a 0-volt to chassis strap on the rear panel enabling star-grounding to a single point when installed in a metal rack. Tube complements are common to both models, 1 x military five-star 6072A hand-selected for lowest noise, and 1 x 6414 for each high-current output stage, with the 60 dB version having an additional 12AU7A gain stage. Each unit is pains-takingly hand wired using silver solder and audiophile-grade componentry. Double shielded custom-built power transformers and custom-built high capacity reservoir capacitors demonstrate our modern power supply design approach.

Perennial shoot-out winners, our single-ended preamp designs have become favorites among top engineers and home recorders alike looking for that rich Manley sound with the tight bass and the top end that goes on forever, which begs to go direct to tape.

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.

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.
