Product Description

The Neve 1084 preamp and EQ combines the legendary sound of the world’s favorite preamp with all new features for added flexibility. With three switchable EQ bands, a reimagined frequency palette and optional narrow or wide Q settings, the Neve 1084 offers unparalleled sonic versatility.

THE SOUND OF YOUR FAVORITE RECORDS

Inspired by the iconic 1073 preamp, the Neve 1084 utilizes the exact same Class A design as the original to deliver the unmistakable Neve sound. Ever since its release, the Neve 1084 has been the go-to preamp for engineers, producers and musicians in search of that classic analog sound.

From pop to rock to hip-hop and more, the iconic sound of the Neve 1084 has been used on countless hit records over the last 40 years. Perfect for adding warmth and depth to vocals, guitars, and acoustic instruments of all kinds, the 1084 combines the legendary Neve sound flexible features for advanced tonal shaping control.

CLASSIC CONTROLS

The new Neve 1084 features the same EQ design as the original 1084. The selectable high shelf EQ can be set at 10 kHz, 12 kHz or 16 kHz—perfect for adding shimmer and sheen to acoustic instruments.

The midband is perfect for carving out space in busy mixes and adding warmth and grit to instruments with fixed frequencies at 350 Hz, 700 Hz, 1.6 kHz, 3.2 kHZ, 4.8 kHz and 7.2 kHz. One of the most unique features of the 1084 is the selectable Hi-Q feature on the midband, which produces a narrow Q shape for precise control.

The low band is perfect for fattening up tracks with tight, punchy lows using fixed frequencies at 35 Hz, 60 Hz, 110 Hz, and 220 Hz. Clean up your low end with a dedicated high-pass filter, selectable at 45 Hz, 70 Hz, 160 Hz and 360 Hz. Or give your tracks a dark lo-fi vibe with the dedicated low-pass filter, selectable at 6 kHz, 8 kHz, 10 kHz, 14 kHz and 18 kHz.

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.
