Neve 1073 Mic Pre/3 Band EQ (Vintage) – No Longer Available

Classic, discrete 3 band EQ/Pre, with hi pass filter

Product Description

The Neve 1073 is justifiably legendary for its beautiful and unique sound, as demonstrated by its use in so many high-end studios, on so many famous recordings. Known for it's fat and pillowy low end, with the perfect midrange points and sweet 12k top end, the history of the 1073 goes back forty years, to May of 1970, when one era ended and another began. On May 8, the Beatles released their final album, Let It Be, and two days later, Rupert Neve released the original 1073 microphone pre-amplifier with EQ. It remains the most desirable Class A discrete transistor mic pre to this day.

EQ controls are:

  • Fixed 12 kHz high-shelf
  • Highpass filter at four frequencies (50-80-160-300 Hz)
  • Low EQ at four frequencies (35-60-110-220 Hz)
  • Hi-mid EQ at six frequencies (360-700 Hz - 1.6-3.2-4.8-7.2 KHz)


Also includes 30 dB of range for line gain or 60 dB for mic gain, phase reverse, and EQ bypass

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.

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.
