500 series modules are a great way to add analog processing to your signal chain, without breaking the bank or taking up too much space in your studio. Since they were introduced in the 1970s, 500 series preamps have been defining the sound of hit records and been a secret weapon to engineers. The design started with API, and since all their consoles were modular, you could easily swap out a preamp, EQ, or compressor if one were to go bad. Manufacturers started to see how this could benefit multiple aspects of the recording industry, and in the 1980’s, the 500 series was born. Vintage King offers the widest variety of 500 series modules, from API, NEVE, BAE, Focusrite, Moog, and many more. Modules come in everything you would need for recording or mixing from preamps, EQ, effects, compressors, gates, and more.

500 series modules are a perfect fit for integration into your favorite DAW, the modules offer the same sonic quality as their larger counterparts, but for fraction of the price, and much less real estate in your rack. Our sales engineers have been putting these modules to the test in pro recording facilities and home setups for years, and have experience with every module, so if you're unsure what you need to fill your first 500 series rack, we are here to help.

A bit of pre-planning is always in order when purchasing analog gear. Vintage King offers a variety of 500 series racks, From API, BAE, NEVE, SSL, Shadow Hills, and more, each with their own power specifications. Be sure to ask your sales engineer which will best suit the power requirement and voltage control for your selected gear.

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.
Phil T.
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.
