Having a variety of microphone preamps in your recording studio is like a painter having multiple colors on his pallet. Each microphone preamp has a different characteristic, and the same preamp might not work for every song you are working on. One day, your BAE 1073 might sound amazing on the vocal, where the next day it’s not quite fitting the vibe of the track. Switching to a tube style preamp such as the UA 610 might be just what you are looking for.

Having a variety of mic preamps is the best way to be prepared for any style of music that may come to your studio. With so many options available today, you aren’t limited to the built in preamps of your console, you can mix and match tube and solid state preamps until your heart's content.

Mic preamps usually consist solely of the preamp circuit from a channel strip, ranging from one channel, four channels, and beyond. To keep the prices down, they often don’t offer any sort of EQ or compression, just the natural sound of the preamp. In most cases, this is absolutely fine, you don’t always need to EQ or compress something, if the source sounds good, it sounds good. Trying different mic pres on the same source is almost a way of trying different EQ settings, since they all have their own special characteristics, they will all have a slightly different vibe when blended into the mix.

Get with your Vintage King sales engineer to find what right type of mic preamps are the best 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!

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.

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.
