Channel Strips are everything you need in your recording studio's outboard rig to achieve any desired tone, all in one box. They combine the Preamp, EQ, and Compression all into one unit, similar to large format consoles such as an SSL G Series, Neve 88r, or API Vision.

When tracking a vocal, often times it is nice to have a little bit of compression to tame the loud peaks of the performance. With a model like the Universal Audio LA610, you can get the tube warmth of the preamp, then run through the compression circuit modeled after the world renowned LA-2A. If something is still missing from the sound, you then have the option to add EQ to open up the top end, or carve out the muddy low frequencies. Some models have the ability to switch the EQ pre or post dynamics.

The Avalon VT-737SP is an example of a much more involved channel strip. First running through the mic pre with fixed gain stage intervals, then into the hi-pass filter to get rid of those unwanted low frequencies. In the standard mode, will then run directly into the compressor, but with the option to make the EQ pre compression. Equipped with every compression parameter to dial in the perfect amount, and the option to switch to main VU meter to display gain reduction. Top it all off with a four band EQ with a wide variety of selectable frequencies, and an output dial to make sure the right amount of level is hitting your A/D D/A converters.

With so many options available, make sure to get with your Vintage King sales engineer to find the right fit for your studio.

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!
Matthew R.
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
Ryan F.
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.
Martin C.
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.
James P.

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!

Jake D.
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.
